Choosing a Resort for Your Ski Holiday in Japan

Ski resorts in France vary greatly in style. There are huge, ugly, purpose-built monstrosities like Flaine, and pretty old farming villages like Megève or Chatel. The "chocolate box" resorts may be ideal for that romantic ski holiday for two, but you can't beat many of France's purpose-built resorts for convenience. La Plagne, for example, has mostly ski-in-ski-out accommodation - making it a perfect choice for family ski holidays with young children.

For those wanting to really cover the miles during their ski holiday, France has some of the biggest ski areas in the world. Les Trois Vallées (the Three Valleys) is a prime example. Comprised of the resorts of Courchevel, Méribel, Val Thorens and Les Ménuires, the whole area has a massive 600km of pistes.

Did I hear you say off-piste? Japan is legendary for up to 14 metres of fresh powder per season... need I say any more?

Choosing Accommodation for Your Ski Holiday in Japan

Japan is famed for its high standards of accommodation and service. As such, there aren't many "budget" places here.
 
Chalets and Self-Catering don't exist here, so you'll need a hotel which can be B&B or Half Board.
 
Quality and comfort levels start at 3* and range right up to the highest luxury 5* hotels in some of the most exclusive locations.
 
Another very popular choice in Japan is for people to extend their stay with a Tokyo city break either before or after their skiing. This is truly one megatropolis that you will want to explore forever!
