Les Deux Alpes
This top French resort is a fantastic base for families of all ages. It’s one of the best family ski resorts in France - from varied, snowsure slopes to an amazing choice of activities, Les Deux Alpes has everything you need to stave off holiday boredom.
On the mountain, you’ll find a wide choice of easy runs for beginners as well as a fun snowpark and Family-Cross race course. The ski schools are ace and the lifts are easy to navigate, giving older kids the chance to enjoy a little freedom. Off the mountain, Les Deux Alpes has endless child-friendly things to do including ice skating, tobogganing, bowling, huskie sledding or catching a movie at resort’s cinema.
A lofty pedestrianised resort perched high in the vast Portes du Soleil ski area, Avoriaz gives you 100% ski-in, ski-out access to the slopes. Kids will love the fact that the only options for getting around town are on the snow – whether that’s skiing, sledging or hopping on a horse-drawn sleigh.
There’s a lovely atmosphere to Avoriaz, with plenty of relaxed cafés and sun terraces where you can soak up those spectacular views down the valley. The Village des Enfants ski areas is a fantastic place to teach children to ski, while off the slopes the Aquariaz waterpark is a tropical aquatic paradise complete with pools, slides, climbing walls and open-air hot tubs.
