Le Hameau du Kashmir, Val Thorens

Your ski holidays are precious and most people only get to go once or twice a year. The best way to maximise your skiing time is to pick one of our ski in/ski out apartments. Luckily many resorts in the French Alps are well designed for doorstep skiing so we have lots of options for you and we have put together this list of our favourites. We can also pre-book your lift passes for all of these properties so you can be first on the slopes from day one.

What does ski in ski out mean?

Ski in ski out accommodation is right next to a piste, which means less walking and more skiing. To make the right choice you should consider the skiing ability of the group, as well as the normal snow conditions at the time of your holiday. That’s why we recommend contacting our team of ski experts to discuss your requirements so we can help find the perfect place for you.

The Best Ski in Ski out Resorts in France

France has some of the best ski in ski out resorts in the world as many are purpose built for convenience so you can stay on the mountain in the heart of the ski area. The world famous 3 Valleys area is a prime example and staying in Val Thorens at 2,300m you truly feel like you are surrounded by the seemingly endless piste skiing on offer. If you’re looking for a smaller ski in ski out resort with access to lots of high altitude skiing, Les Arcs and La Plagne offer great value ski accommodation. For families travelling with younger children or for a short ski break then we’d recommend the resorts of Avoriaz and Flaine as they are only a short transfer from Geneva airport and if you stay in a ski in ski out apartment you can really maximise the time you spend on the mountain.

Looking for some inspiration? We’ve picked out our favourite ski in ski out accommodation for the perfect ski holiday.

Ultimate Ski to Door

Not just ski in ski out, at Le Hameau du Kashmir in Val Thorens you could ski right in to the boot room if someone held the door open for you (not a good idea of course). At Les Terrasses d’Helios in Flaine the piste runs underneath the building and the ski school meet just outside.

Family Favourites
