La Tania -4th place for "most recommended resort" - La Tania, France

la Tania - most recommended resort

The Ski Club of Great Britain Industry Report and Survey saw France maintain its number one skiing destination spot and also first place in retaining visitors.

There was a nice surprise in the category of "Most Recommended Resort" by other skiers and snowboarders section - La Tania coming 4th in the World (and 2nd in Europe) after Whistler, Obergurgl and Banff. Well no surprise to us really, except why it wasn't first...

Want to find out more about this great little resort in the very centre of the 3 valleys then get in touch and see what everyone is talking about!
Great value for money in one of Europes most popular areas - 3 Valleys !

La Follie Douce - Alpe d'Huez, France

For those unfamiliar with the concept La Follie Douce has arrived in Alpe d'Huez this winter. A very smart restaurant, self-service area, bar (with leather sofas and oriental rugs) plus the most enormous south-facing terrace which transforms into a club on the slopes! Dancing on the tables, live music and amazing atmosphere where pretty much everything 'goes'!

Calm before the storm? - Tignes, France

A great picture sent to us by Alpine Elements from one of their staff members in Tignes. This was yesterday - blue skies, great conditions. Looks like the sunshine might have been short-lived as many resorts are getting some snow showers now. In Tignes they're expecting more snow tomorrow and it's looking like heavy snow for Sunday and Monday! Netweather Tignes forecast

Take a look at all the Alpine Elements chalets here: Alpine Elements on Chalets Direct
