Article Body: If you enjoy skiing, there is nothing more exhilarating than the prospect of
skiing through France. Whether taking advantage of some of the world's best downhill
runs, or heading cross country, France is a skiers paradise, and somewhere definitely not
to be missed for any winter sports enthusiast. Amidst some of the world's most
breathtaking scenery, the fresh alpine air and magically contoured runs are truly a once in
a lifetime experience. It really is no wonder that France is highly regarded as one of the
best skiing nations in the world.

When skiing in France, you'd be mad not to go to the alps. Famous the world over for
their excellent ski slopes, the alps also border on Switzerland, so you might also like to
pop over and visit while you're in town. And don't worry if you don't have your
equipment - there are simply thousands of dedicated ski shops to serve the tourists, and
some stock some pretty good bargains!

France is also home to the world famous Val d'Isere resort. A huge scenic expanse, the
resort was made famous by top French skier Jean Claude Killy, and is a magnet for
tourists all year round, with a near guarantee of absolutely perfect conditions.
Additionally, the resort caters for all levels of experience and ability, and so you're sure
to find a challenge somewhere! To top it all, the resort boasts amazing facilities, from its
ski lifts to its hotels and refreshment areas. The Val d'Isere really is a skier's heaven.

France is fortunate enough to benefit from great wine, great food, great culture...as well
as great skiing! If you decide to opt for France for your next skiing trip, don't spend all
your time on the slopes - get out there and experience a different style of living. Sample
the delicacies, and experience the delights of this highly metropolitan European nation.

Why not look online for great French skiing deals? Thanks to the internet, holiday prices
have really come down over the last few years, and you can find some real bargains with
a bit of research. Additionally, there is no need to consider booking each individual
element separately, given the sheer number of top quality package deals, which will come
included with your skiing, accommodation, flights and lift pass. You might even be
lucky enough to find a deal that includes some exotic French food to fill you up after a
hard day on the slopes!

Alternatively, you could just pop in to your local travel agents to see what they have on
offer. Although the travel agent will usually inflate the price to cover their commission,
you can still find some real bargains that aren't available elsewhere. And what's more,
the travel agent can recommend where to go and what to see, and there is nothing quite
like that personal recommendation. Additionally, he can help allay any fears or worries
you may have about your holiday, and can answer any questions you might have. Again,
it is important to shop around for the best deal, and this will also help you get a better
idea of what your chosen resort is like as a whole.

Before leaving for France it is important to make sure you have a valid passport, with
over six months before expiry. This will be absolutely critical for passing through French
customs. If you need a new passport, you should allow around eight to ten weeks before
leaving, given the lengthy application process. Make sure you plan well in advance - the
passport is vital if you're to set foot out of the country. Without it, you won't get to
experience the magic of French skiing, and additionally, you will lose the money you
paid for your holiday, so this really is a vital consideration. So why not consider France
for your next skiing trip? The real home of skiing, France is waiting, and it doesn't have
to be as expensive as you might think!
