Ski Holidays beyond Les Gets

Okay, so we're obviously pretty biased and don't know why anyone would want to ski anywhere else. But, if you want to compare and find out just how good we have it here in the Portes Du Soleil, here are some the other places which our guests have tried and enjoyed.

The Belleville / Thorens Valley

With the quiet and traditional resort of St Martin de Belleville and the more modern Les Menuires, with its ski-in/ski-out possibilities, the Belleville Valley offers great catered holidays and self-catered holidays as well as great skiing. Climbing to the lofty Val Thorens, Europe's highest ski resort (2,300m), the Belleville Valley offers phenomenal skiing opportunities for visitors of all skiing and boarding abilities.

The USA and Canada

Okay, this probably merits more than the couple of paragraphs we can dedicate to the subject right here, but this page wouldn't be complete if we didn't at least mention our friends across the pond.

What are the biggest differences between European and North American skiing? Well, according to Charles Leocha of USA Today, "The mountains in Europe are simply bigger - grand, jagged, rugged, inspiring and soaring. In the United States, [...] slopes seem to trace their way down what appear to be over-sized hills." Scale and vertical drop tend to be much bigger in Europe.

In defence of American skiing, we should observe a couple of areas where they certainly do have the edge. First, queueing for lifts: they have a much better system, making more efficient use of each chair or gondola, and your skis will scarcely be stepped on. Second, the attitude to the skiing: in America and Canada, skiers are there to ski - end of subject. Coffee, lunch, wine and apres ski all come second to the higher priority of racking up maximum time on the slopes.

Other ski companies to consider France, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Andorra and more

If you're looking for something very specific, or if you're looking for a late deal on a peak week such as February half term ski holiday, some of the larger chalet companies and chalet advertising sites can be a good place to start the search.

Some of these larger sites offer a service where you can explain your requirements and then have the chalet companies come to you, instead of you searching for something which might be hard to find.
