France is quite a large country, with a diversity of cultures, traditions and customs in different areas. The best big cities to arrive and leave from when not splitboarding include Paris, Lyon, Nice, Marseille and Toulouse.
Some of the splitboarding can be challenging, so being in good shape and having a decent level of fitness before undertaking splitboarding trip will enhance your enjoyment of the activity.
Temperatures can plummet in the mountainous regions, so make you sure you pack and wear appropriate clothing so as not to get caught out.
Weather varies greatly between regions: the northern cities and mountain towns have very cold winters (with heavy snowfalls on the mountains) and warm summers; while the coastal cities by the Mediterranean enjoy mild temperatures almost all year and very hot days during the summer season.
Flights to Paris from all major international hubs, with Lyon, Marseille and Nice also well-served. Easy access to most of the country via car, bus or train from the rest of Europe.
December-March, when the weather is coldest and the snowfall heaviest.
