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.

Skiing in Valloire/Valmeinier

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.

Snow conditions in Valloire/Valmeinier

There are over 400 snow cannons throughout the ski area combined with natural snowfall for guaranteed skiing throughout most of the season.
