Ski hire in France
France probably has one of the most beautiful skiing areas in the world. More than 200 ski resorts are spread over the various French mountain ranges: the Northern Alps, the Southern Alps, the Pyrenees, the Vosges, the Jura and the Massif Central.
France is one of the birthplaces of skiing: the first French pair of skis was made in 1895 in Chamonix and the first ski club (the Ski Club des Alpes) was set up in 1895 in Grenoble. The French resorts have also hosted the Olympic Winter Games on many occasions. In 1924 Chamonix organised the first international winter sports week, unofficially considered to be the first Winter Olympic Games. Grenoble hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 1968 and then Albertville did the same in 1992.
The French ski areas are among the most extensive and the most beautiful in the world: Les 3 Vallées, La Plagne and even Les Portes du Soleil with more than 400 km of ski slopes. The French ski resorts all have their own peculiarities. You will find ski resorts with the charm of yesteryear such as Megève or Saint Martin de Belleville, and modern ski resorts such as Les Arcs or Isola 2000. France also has one of the skiing and mountaineering meccas: Chamonix. The French resorts have also managed to develop and modernise the infrastructure of the ski slopes: snow canons and ski lifts.
