France Ski Holiday Experts

There’s nothing quite like hitting the slopes for a refreshing run surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of nature.

Planning that ultimate, destination ski trip requires expert guidance with a personal touch. Your time away deserves to be treated with respect and consideration; you shouldn’t have more work to do while on holiday.

With Top Snow Travel, you can relax while our well-respected team provides a premium experience on your next ski holiday to the French Alps, led by our team of professionals who will make this an unforgettable journey.

My name is Gilles Riou, Top Snow Travel Founder and world-class ski enthusiast who understands the needs of a luxury ski holiday. My expertise comes from having skied at more than 60 ski resorts around the world, including Canada, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, and more than 30 different resorts in France alone.

Not only have I explored the French Alps while on holiday from my current home in Australia, I have also spent much of my adolescence on these remarkable mountains.

From just 2 years old until I was 15, I was fortunate enough to visit my family-owned home at a ski resort in the French Alps. Every school holiday, my loved ones and I would leave our home in Paris and enjoy the atmosphere and excitement of this stunning mountain region. It was here that I developed a sincere love for the sport of skiing, as well as a wealth of knowledge regarding the best places to stay and ski. These memories stayed with me long after I moved to Australia as a teen.

After school, I spent the first decade of my career working in the travel and tourism industry selling worldwide ski holidays to the Australian market. However, I knew I had more to offer so I decided to venture out on my own.

In 2015, Top Snow Travel was created to give fellow Aussies the incredible experience of elite skiing on some of the very best slopes in the world. My desire to share this passion with others is just one of the reasons Top Snow Travel is a top-rated travel company today.

Not only does a lot of heart go into planning these trips, but you can also rest easy knowing the big and small details have been handled with care just for you. From pick-up at the airport to amazing accommodations, and the necessary logistics to have a fabulous ski experience, it is all given special attention and carried out impeccably.

The ski experts at our world-class travel agency have personally explored and tested the vast snow playgrounds and exquisite resorts the French Alps have to offer to ensure you are getting the very best treatment possible while out on the snow, as well.

Whether this is your first time hitting the slopes of the famous French Alps, or it is your annual getaway, Top Snow Travel is here to deliver a holiday unlike any you’ve had before. Let our team of one-of-a-kind professionals lead the way so that you can truly indulge in the holiday you’ve been dreaming of.

Build those lifetime memories on fresh powder among some of the most idyllic views in the world.
