|Subject: Re: Skiing near Paris|
If you don't wish to go all the way to the Alps then maybe the Vosges
Mountains is a good alternative. The little village of Xonrupt-Longemer
is closer to Paris than Chamonix. You could check out the following web
page for some more information:
Some years ago my wife and I stayed a night in the youth hostel there.
We had a room with four single beds (real beds not bunk beds!),
private shower and toilet and an entry hall large enough for ski
gear. All at a very reasonable rate. Breakfast was included in the
rate and dinner was available. Simple but nutritious fare.
The website for the hostel is: http://perso.wanadoo.fr/auberge.jeunesse/ I am sure you will have a wonderful time wherever you decide to go. Gerrit
