It's that time of year again, when the mountains become a playground, and skiers and boarders alike are keenly watching the snowfall across Europe that dictates their winter fun. If you want to take to the slopes, enter our competition for the chance to win a great skiing holiday in Valloire.

Valloire is an old Savoyard mountain village with 150km of varied piste, uncrowded and snowsure (70 percent above 2000m). There are ski schools for all ages, and even the opportunity to try the latest extreme sports craze of speed-riding: a skiing-come-paragliding hybrid.

But it's not all about the skiing. For those who'd rather slow down than speed up, there's also the opportunity to try snow-shoeing, go on a farm visit and or walk with llamas.

Does all this sound tempting? Enter this competition for a chance to win a family holiday to Valloire.
