The Best Resorts for Guaranteed Snow
Tignes – One of the Alps’ most popular resorts and for good reason, Tignes is popular with groups, families and powder hounds alike. The ski area is exceptional, with plenty for skiers of all abilities, as well as unparalleled off piste terrain. Due to its impressively high altitude, Tignes is the perfect spot for early and late season holidays, with a far longer season than many other resorts.
Pas de la Casa – A ski resort perhaps more well known for its party reputation than its impressive ski area, Pas de la Casa is finally getting the attention it deserves as a serious ski destination. Its high altitude, coupled with the numerous snow cannons covering the ski area, mean it offers reliable snow, all season long. The après-ski is still highly entertaining, with many lively bars in resort and great value duty-free shopping!
Montgenèvre – This picture-perfect village with a great snow record lies on the Italian border, with sun-drenched slopes up to 2,700m. A historic resort, which recently celebrated 100 years, it sits amongst 110km of local pistes, with a total of up to 400km of piste when counting the entire area across the border into Italy.
