There’s been a lot of debate about the size of ski areas recently — but what does size actually mean?

If you struggle to work out exactly how big 250km is (Serre Chevalier), 425km (Paradiski) or 600km (Three Valleys), the France Montagnes and Atout France has come up with a nifty little app to help put it all in perspective.

French Ski Area Over My Town has been made by the creative geniuses at Brighton-based All Conditions Media (ACM).

“During our collective 20-odd seasons living and snowboarding in France we spent much time pondering important questions like these: Just how far do you travel if you ski, say, the Saulire in Meribel, or schlep between Tignes and Val d’Isère? So when we sat down to come up with our latest piece of content work for our clients Atout France and France Montagnes, we decided to answer these posers once and for all,” says ACM.

Simply type in your postcode and/or town, and select a resort/ski area from Paradiski, 3 Vallees, Portes du Soleil, Val d’Isère/Tignes, Les 2 Alpes/La Grave, Serre Chevalier, Grand Tourmalet and Alpe d’Huez/Grand Domaine Ski and you get a simple, interactive map that allows you to see exactly how big the key French ski areas are by measuring them against the size of your own town.
