The best ski resorts for...

Beginners

When you are looking for a ski holiday for complete beginners, choosing a ski resort can seem like a daunting prospect. Picking the right one will be key to both your enjoyment of your holiday and the progress that you make with your skiing. 

 

Not only will the ideal ski resort for beginners have convenient and snow-sure nursery slopes but those slopes should also be wide and gentle, with plenty of longer easy runs to progress to once you've found your skiing legs.

 

Here's our pick of the five best ski resorts in the Alps for beginners...

France

 

 ☆  Unbeatable nursery slopes...
☆  Excellent snow record...
☆  Vast and varied ski area..

 

With a friendly low-key vibe, wide and gentle snow-sure nursery slopes that are separated from the main ski area, and lots of long easy green runs to progress to, Montgenèvre is probably the best ski resort in the Alps for beginners...
