Ski Resorts in France

Fancy a tyrolean tryst? There are a host of classic resorts in this province where you can schuss, schnapps and sleep: St. Anton, Wildschönau, Olympic champion Innsbruck, Söll and Lanersbach are a few worth checking out.

Toward Switzerland, the Saltzburg-area resorts include Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Obertauern and Zell am See.

Fair warning: people ski well over here. Rigid knees and a cowboy stance will not be tolerated by classically trained instructors who can ski on the old gear better than you can on your power-steering carvers.
