Skiing in France

Jump to last reply

I'll be with my boyfriend in Paris in a Working February / 2015 and we are taking 4 to 5 days off to go skiing in the Alps. We have lot of difficulty to understand and decide what is the most cost-effective place to stay and to ski.

We don't want resorts since they are really expensive. After researching, I was in doubt between staying in Annecy and skiing in La Clusaz or staying in Sallanches and skiing in Chamonix .

I found lodgings in these 2 cities around USD 550 per 5 Nights for a couple and I saw that the distance to from them to the mountains are around 30km. I also understand you can go by train.

Is it really feasible to stay in Annecy or Sallanches and go skiing from there for about 4 out of the 5 days? Is La Clusaz worth it? And is there any other better options you can think of? We're both beginners at skiing.

Thank you!
