About Top Snow Travel
From the beginning…
For over 30 years, our ski travel experts have personally explored, experienced and tested the vast snow playgrounds and exquisite resorts of the stunning French Alps.
Co-Founder and General Manager of Top Snow Travel, Gilles Riou, has himself skied over 60 ski resorts world-wide, including Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland and 30+ resorts in France alone.
Born in Paris, Gilles was very lucky his family owned a holiday apartment in the French Alps at a ski resort called Valfréjus. Here he spent every winter school holiday skiing (December, February and April) from the young age of 2 years old until he turned 15 and moved to Australia with his family.
From there, his passion for skiing never stopped. Gilles continued to explore new ski resorts around the world.
In 2006, he began working in the travel and tourism industry selling world-wide ski holidays to the Australian market. In August 2013, Gilles decided that the French Alps as a ski destination was second to none and so Top Snow Travel, the France ski holiday specialists, was created. It has been said that Gilles’ experience of crafting ski holidays, thanks to his local knowledge of the French Alps gathered over the years, is unmatched in the travel industry.
