With over 150 ski schools and organisations there truly is something for everyone! Whatever your need maybe, then enjoying a winter ski holiday or summer excursion in the French Alps or Pyrenees, is a hard place to beat!
Fresh air, good food, exercise and a warm welcome are all vital ingredients to sustaining life. All these and more can be found in the majestic and awe inspiring scenic mountains; and what better place to rejuvenate, rehabilitate, find new life skills, de-stress, recover from trauma and find inner peace and equilibrium.
Year round spiritual empowerment can be found visiting some of the most beautiful Baroque Churches to be found in the French Alps; staying in many of the small mountain villages to be found along the old trade and pilgrimage routes – the route des Grandes Alpes and the Route de Napoleon are but two.

Our French associates:
We are continually adding information to our resort pages. If you do not see a particular ski resort listed it just means we have not yet added information.
The following is a guide to show the amount of information currently available on a resort. If you see the YELLOW and RED dots, this indicates that the website is currently lacking information but we do have it and you just need to contact us and we will be delighted to go through options with you!
Ski 2 Freedom Foundation - Mountains 4 All is working in close association with organisations that will help fulfill a life-empowering ski and alpine holiday.
Our main Associate Member in France for providing assisted and adaptive snow sports is the ESF (Ecole de Ski Français). However, there are other associations that provide exceptional 'handiski' adaptive year-round activities, especially for wheelchair users, and one such is Loisirs Assis Evasion based near Chamonix.
Somewhere suitable to stay is always a priority, especially for wheelchair users, and we are happy to have the support of a number of accessible and inclusive hotels, chalets and apartments.
