There is a big reason why the Portes du Soleil region continues to be one of the most popular areas on the planet among travellers, as it has everything that people could wish to find on their ski weekends.

Situated in the stunning Chablais Alps, or the Northern French Alps, the area comprises 12 ski resorts, each offering something different but all within easy access of each other, providing travellers with plenty of options, noted the ski advice site

"Each offers incredible scenery, a friendly local population, a quaint and inviting town life and amazing ski trails for beginners and experts alike," it explained.

The source added that, as the area is a mere one hour drive from Geneva airport, it is easily accessible via plane and car, though another popular option is to take a coach journey that gives people the opportunity to admire the stunning scenery on the way.

As far as the winter sports opportunities go, the entire skiable area is vast, with many people who attempt to complete the whole circuit finding that it takes a full day to do so.

The site explained that there are over 650 kilometres of ski runs in total, with over 200 lifts to accommodate guests, though most families and average skiers opt to stick in one resort, with minimal travel between their accommodation and the ski slopes.

People on ski weekends in the Portes du Soleil region also have the option to tick off two different countries on their travel to-do list during their stay, it noted.

"The area crosses international borders, with some resorts in France and others in Switzerland. It is entirely possible to ski back and forth across the two nations without ever even realising it," the site explained.

The great allure of the region has been enhanced further this season, in 2011-12, as the area is experiencing one of the best ski seasons ever, with people coming from across the planet to take advantage of the crisp snow and deep base and schuss and slalom to their heart's content.
