Thank you to Gilles for organising our ski trip in France. The choice of resort ticked all our boxes - an amazing village, resort, hotel (the pool with the view of the slopes!) and food. All was seamless, from transfers to/from the train station to the hotel, ski hire, lift tickets, lessons. We had a fantastic time and would go back to the exact same place again (next time without the teenagers!). Highly recommend Top Snow Travel - Gilles' recommendations and organisation made for an unforgettable experience.

This was my second holiday I booked with Gilles from Top Snow and this time we returned as a group of ten. We had a week in Meribel and then a few of us travelled onto Chamonix. Gilles advice and attention to detail made for a fantastic holiday. From the airport transfers, accomodation, ski hire and lift passes, ski guides, all of it was effortless for us and made for a great holiday. Gilles even advised us on where to lunch on the mountain and dine at night and we followed all his recommendations. He knows his resorts, understands our requests and I wouldn't hesitate to book with Gilles again. Love skiing in France, we will return. Btw I had a little accident with my knee and Gilles was extremely helpful with my situation, so appreciated his concern.

I would highly recommend using Gilles and Top Snow Travel to make arrangements for a France ski holiday. We had an excellent experience. Gilles was interested in finding out details of our 2 x families, ski abilities, interests etc. so that he could recommend the best resort and accommodation options. We stayed at La Rosiere and both families absolutely loved it. The quality of the accommodation with ski-in ski-out access was amazing, the transfers, lessons, equipment all worked out really well. Communication with Gilles was great and he was quick to respond to any questions we had.

We recently used Top Snow Travel to book 2 ski packages during our trip to France in January 2023. Gilles recommended La Rosiere (which he was able to book at very late notice) and Avoriaz.Both locations were perfect for our family in terms of quality of resorts, ski runs, accomodation, apres ski and access to local villages / shops etc. In both cases we had ski in / ski out accomodation and really easy access to local cafe's, restaurant's and supermarkets. Accomodation was better than the pictures presented, especially La Rosiere.Gilles was incredibly helpful and knowledgable in guiding us on which resorts to choose and the Trip Plans App which has details and documents for train and ski rental bookings was incredibly helpful.We'll definately use Gilles again for our next France ski holiday as his knowledge of the ski resorts and matching our requirements against the most suitable location was superb.

We’ve used Gilles Riou (at Top Snow Travel) a couple of times to book our ski holidays in France. He is absolutely top shelf. He knows all about the resorts and the accommodation, and dealing with him is both a pleasure and so easy. We will definitely be using Gilles again and recommend him highly.

Incredible. This was our second trip with Top Snow Travel and is was just as amazing as our first. Every detail, down to restaurants, transfers, recommendations, and even the Christmas tree that was organized for us at our accommodation was perfect. 10/10. Thank you Gilles for a wonderful holiday.

Gilles at Top Snow Travel is excellent. He was very helpful and informative (and patient) through our decision making process and as a result we had an outstanding holiday in Meribel. The accomodation was all it promised and more (Le Havana, Meribel). Gilles even responded to a message on Christmas Day, so he goes over and above for his clients. Highly recommended, and Top Snow Travel will be our go-to for skiing holidays. Thanks Gilles.Simon & Anna, Sydney

This is the 2nd time we have used Gilles at Top Snow Travel and it won't be the last. We were a large group and Gilles helped co-ordinate us all - accommodation was fantastic and everything went off as planned. A great trip all round.

Top Snow Travel offer a fantastic experience for French skiing. We had an enormous 3 bedroom apartment in Val d’isere over Xmas 2022. Gilles arranged accommodation, transfers, ski passes, ski hire and recommendations for meals and ski school / ski guides. We would use Top snow again for our next French ski experience!

Hi Gilles, I can't thank you enough for organising our trip to Meribel in January, we had the most fabulous family ski trip and can't wait to plan the next one! The accomodation was absolutely outstanding and it was so easy having the ski hire under the building. I was particularly grateful for your expertise in organising everything from ski hire, lift tickets, trains and transfers, as it all ran seamlessly. Your local knowledge made all the difference to our trip, as little tips like upgrading to first class on the trains meant we had ticketed seats and a very comfortable journey. We will definitely be calling you for the next trip and I will recommend you to all of our friends if they want fantastic travel advice and friendly efficient service. Thanks Gilles!

Why choose to ski France?

  • France has 7 out of 10 of the world’s largest interconnected ski areas. The biggest with 600km of slopes is Les 3 Vallées.
  • Because many of the French ski resorts are located at high altitudes, they have reliable snow conditions and longer seasons – some even run from late November through to the beginning of May!
  • The French Alps are great value for money. The lift passes are cheaper than most countries and great deals can be had for January ski packages, since it’s low season in France. 
  • There are over 350+ ski resorts to choose from, catering to all tastes and budgets. Top Snow has helped simplify the choice for you – we have selected only our top 15 French ski resorts for our offering.
