Skiers have been hitting the slopes in France and we are jealous of their pictures

Ski season is off to a good start in France. Bookings in ski accommodation over the Christmas period were up three percentage points with 70% occupancy Christmas 2019 compared to 67% Christmas 2018, according to Association Nationale des Maires des Stations de Montagne. The forecasted figures for January 2020 also show an increase in occupancy compared to last season and this is expected to be especially so in the stations with the highest altitude.

There have certainly been lots of skiers sharing their pictures of fresh powder and stunning views at the French ski resorts on Instagram and it looks fantastic…
