Chamonix has been named as the most popular ski destination with British winter sport fans following a new survey.

According to easyJet, Chamonix is the favourite place for UK skiers and snowboarders to test out their skills and enjoy all the trappings of a fun trip to the slopes.

The resort beat Avoriaz into second place, with Meribel and Les Arcs coming third and fourth respectively, illustrating the popularity of skiing holidays in France.

Charles Martin, partnership manager for easyJet, said that the standing of the French resorts in the list, with Val d'Isere also making the index, highlighted why skiing holidays in the country will always be popular.

"France attracts over 50 per cent of all British skiers, so it's no surprise to see French resorts taking the top slots. Chamonix and Avoriaz are real favorites with British skiers," he explained.

One reason why Chamonix topped the list is likely to be its snowfall, as a list of the best places to see the white stuff compiled by recently showed that the resort is one of the very best for late-season snow.
