The first dustings of snow have fallen in the Alps, a sure sign that winter is almost upon us. Many resorts have also been busy in the off-season making multi-million euro improvements to make 2018/2019 the best season yet! If that doesn’t make you excited, the below first snow pics are sure to get you and your family excited for the upcoming ski season.

La Rosière possesses a more relaxed, family-centered feel than the nearby resorts of Val d’Isere and Tignes. Connected to the Italian La Thuile resort,  guests have access to 160km of pistes. New this year is a €15 million ski area expansion which will add 2 new chairlifts, adding even more territory to explore in this under-the-radar resort.

The close proximity to the slopes make Chalet Romeo a firm family favourite. Enjoy Less Crowds in La Rosière >>>

The heart of the famed 3 Valleys ski area, Meribel is the gateway to 600km of pistes for you and your family to explore. The adjacent Val Thorens offers the highest ski resort in Europe, with fantastic snow-sure skiing on the Glacier de Péclet. This season marks the start of a two year, €15 million improvement in the Roc de Fer area. The result is two new high speed six-seaters replacing the Cherferie, Plan de l’Homme, Roc de Fer lifts.

The Chalet Hotel Alba is located 20 metres from the slopes and features wonderful amenities to relax after a day’s skiing. Book your holiday to Meribel >>>

Obergurgl works wonderfully well for family skiing holidays. The children’s kindergarten ski area and ski-school meeting point are now both conveniently located on the slopes. Additionally, the wide array of blue runs available are great for building confidence skiing.
