A more affordable French skiing resort Serre Chevalier has more of the charm of a French village with family run hotels than a large ski resort. Serre Chevalier has a higher treeline than most ski resorts which makes for more exciting treeline runs!

4. Alpbach, Austria

A small picturesque village in Western Austria, Alpbach is an ideal place to get away from it all and a great place to start. It isn’t a large resort but for what it lacks in size it makes up for it in charm. It is also dotted with slopes of all varieties but the most extreme. The trip and village are affordable as well.
