There is no doubt that skiing is one of the most popular sports in France and for that matter in many countries of Europe.
Each year France attracts thousands of skiing enthusiasts from across the EU and also from other parts of the world.
The majestic Alps without any doubt is considered to be one of the best destinations to take part in various ski events.
The Mount Blanc in particular is the most obvious choice for those who would like showcase their skiing talents or would just like to be a part of the entire sporting extravaganza.
However, it is important to note that there is no specific season in which ski is practiced as a hobby or sports in France.
Hence, it is quite normal for many of us to ask the question when is Ski Season in France.
Let us try and find answers for the same over the next few lines.
All Seasons Are Ski Seasons
It would be pertinent to mention that since Ski is practiced at considerable heights, the entire year could be suitable for skiing.
However, there are some specific seasons, and months where there is unusual rush. Hence it would be better to avoid being there during these days, dates and months, especially if you are keen on doing it alone without too much crowd to bother you. It would be almost impossible to predict the week, date or month where crowds will be thin.
But some guesswork can be made based on previous experiences.
New Year and Christmas without any doubt are the most crowded and for those who hate crowds, you must avoid the last week of December of each year.
The period between 5th January and end February can be considered as relatively calm. However, this period comes with its own disadvantages. The days or short and the weather could be extremely cold and hostile.
March Could Be An Ideal Month Too
The month of March is also relatively calm and free from maddening crowds, expect perhaps during the Easter holidays.
March would also see the weather being much better especially on the higher altitudes. The lower altitudes and slopes may not be suitable because the snow might have started melting.
But the days would be comparatively longer and the weather would also be warmer during the month of March.
