In late March 2015, I went to France in search of the best and most affordable European skiing destination for South Africans. I’d never skiied before and was keen to find deals for learners. Les Gets in the French-Swiss Portes du Soleil region proved the absolute winner – a perfect ski destination for beginners, with plenty to keep more experienced skiiers happy too.

Reasonable flights to Geneva helped keep costs down, but so did some very good prices for accommodation and some excellent ski passes/gear/lesson packages. All in all, I had so much fun I’m already planning a trip back.
Here are a few photos of my incredible trip.
