A well organised journey in the mountains

WELL CHOOSING YOUR RESORT

There are different resorts for many budgets and wishes:

The rates of your stay (accommodation, lift passes, activities, equipment rental, etc.) can go from single to double depending on the choice of resort. Be careful, depending on the reputation and size of the estate, prices may vary from single to double!

The location of the station is also an important element : consider watching the distance with your departure city. Find out if it is served by the train, or for example if there is a nearby highway exit. (Also think about carpooling!)

Are you going with friends or family? Dont make a mistake: there are family resorts and some more trendy ones.

Activities, other than skiing, may be totally different from one station to another: inquire at the tourist office. Here are some examples with our three favorite resorts in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes:

In Valloire, family resort-village in Maurienne, you can discover the following activities: outing in grooming, introduction to ski-joëring, snakegliss, sleigh ride with donkeys, snowshoeing, sled dogs, flights in microlight, Nordic walking, family ride with llamas, biathlon (shooting 10 meters, laser and lead), paragliding & speed riding …. and the most classic: cinema, bowling, ice rink, spas …

In La Plagne, in the heart of the Paradiski area in Tarentaise, fall for these: introduction to bobsleigh, spend a night in the village-igloo, introduction to ice climbing, airboard, yooner, snakegliss, bodyboard snow, ski trikke. Then to relax after all these new emotions you can enjoy health centers and spas!

At Les 2 Alpes, high altitude resort in Isère, you can try: snowmobile, airbag and dropbag, snowshoes, paragliding, canirando and sled dogs. For relaxation there are also: museums & exhibition spaces, ice cave tour, fitness center and cinema. After-ski is known to be dynamic and varied, and the nightlife hectic!
