Ski Holidays in Valloire/Valmeinier, France

Valloire is a traditional rustic French resort situated at the crossroads where the Northern and Southern Alps meet. The village nestles around a 17th century Baroque church and the laid back charm ensures a relaxed and friendly village atmosphere. It is an ideal resort for families and people looking at a no-frills, but good value for money resort, though it is not especially suited to experienced skiers.

Although small, the resort of Valloire offers a chilled out but lively atmosphere in the evenings. Whether you want to eat some local 'savoyardes' specialities such as fondue, raclette and pierrade or a variety of Italian dishes at La Pizza, you'll find something to suit your mood. There are around 15 restaurants and dozens of bars in the centre of Valloire, most of them open until 2pm, such as Bar Centrale and the infamous Irish Pub L'Atelier, and after that you can hit the club scene, which open all night. It is very reasonnable to go out whatever you do, so we recommend that you try to sample most of these places during your stay.

The ski area is linked to the neighbouring resort Valmeinier giving 150km of well-groomed runs. The resort is recommended for beginners and intermediates - skiers as well as snowboarders. The skiing conditions are remarkably good throughout the season due to most of the terrain being north facing. Beginners may particularly enjoy the fact that there are nursery slopes at the top of the mountain making them snowsure (and a softer landing.)

Intermediates have a good choice of runs with many blues and reds including some blacks that may be within the means of a capable skier. You can enjoy the entire area from Valmeinier 1800 right across to Valloire and Les Verneys.

For advanced skiers, there are some challenging blacks at Le Crey Rond, which is also well known for decent powder. The extensive off-piste and powder possibilities are wonderful with a local guide; the powder remains untracked for days. A great uncrowded area, offering high calibre skiing.
