French Mountains hit the heights at the French Press Club

THE invitations are out, the venue is set and the skis are being dusted off in preparation for Winter Wonderland

On 11 September, France Montagnes and Atout France are co-organising the exclusive Winter Wonderland event which will introduce the British press to the best ski professionals and the upcoming French ski season.

Attendees will be privy to the most up-to-date, quality information for their winter supplement inspiration. We will be going beyond the glamour and the glitz of the French ski resorts to find out about topics such as family get-togethers, gastronomy and cultural discoveries!

Over 25 per cent of France is covered by mountains that are home to over 300 winter resorts. This equates to the largest ski area in the world which, Crystal Ski Industry Reports 2012 research has shown, received a two per cent increase in TO activity during its latest season.

The select attendees at the event will meet representatives from France Montagnes and French ski school ESF as well as the resorts Les Menuires, Méribel, Morzine, Tignes, Chatel, Valloire, Isola 2000 and Les Gets for a workshop from 4pm to 6pm.

From 6pm, the following TOs will arrive to introduce and take part in the networking part of the evening: Neilson Activity Holidays, Ski Morzine, Erna Low, Ski 2 Freedom, Mountain Heaven, Ski Famille, Ski Solutions, Peak Retreats, Move Mountains, Ski Weekender, Crystal Ski, Thomson Ski and Flexiski.

To give you a taste of what’s coming, we will be kicking off weekly chronicles on the different ski resorts that will be joining us for a brief introduction. So stay tuned and dig out those chic ski goggles for a better look.
