Family Ski Trip: France
Skiing in Vermont is a no-brainer when you live in New York, but true powder heads fly out west.
Except for the really dedicated, and well-heeled, who go to Europe.
Skiing in France actually makes a lot of sense. You can take a ski train to the Espace Killy ski resort in Tignes, and drink French wine après-ski. Flights to Europe are at one of their lowest points during ski season, which runs from September to May, and you can find Tignes Ski Deals to make your family vacation reasonably priced.
Imagine being able to eat all that delicious French cheese and burning off the calories skiing.
There are many types of Tignes accommodations including
Tignes apartments where you can make your meals and full service Tignes hotels.
For families, ski school starts at age 2 ½ and there is childcare for younger kids. The village has family friendly restaurants, including vegetarian friendly creperies.
