UK skiers have discovered that the larger ski stations can rival any in the Alps for quality skiing and infrastructure, and in recent years have received snowfalls envied by resorts across the globe.

Many resorts have been awarded the Famille Plus label and offer a mix of activities to suit all ages. In addition, you'll find the thermal spa towns now have friendly modern aqua centres, with well-being and beauty treatments.
