St. François Longchamp

 St. Francois Longchamp has plenty of green, blue, red and black so there are lots of options for skiers of all levels. The ski area offers no less than 160 kilometers of piste and for cross-country skiers, Montaimont is a nice area with a whopping 40 kilometers of trails for both the advanced and novice cross-country skier. The village is divided into two levels: Saint Francois Longchamp 1450 and 1650. The village is very cozy and welcoming and non-skiers will enjoy themselves here too. The après-ski is not huge here, but you can always enjoy a drink on a sunny terrace or grab a bite to eat. There are bars to enjoy a drink or two in the evening. Furthermore, there are numerous opportunities for other activies, such as a gym, snow hiking, paragliding and dog sledding. For families with children there are good facilities such as childcare and child-friendly ski school.

Le Grand Domaine

 

The ski area of Le Grand Domaine varies in altitude from 1250 meters to 2550 meters.  It is a fantastic choice for half term as it remains relatively unknown within the English market. Besides ski slopes at every level, Le Grand Domaine also offers a snow park with a half pipe for snowboarders. The area is also highly regarded for its many natural obstacles perfect for freestylers!

The resort of Valmorel is surrounded by the famous mountain pass of Col de la Madeleine. The buildings in Valmorel have a maximum height of three floors and they are built in authentic Chalet style. St. François Longchamp 1650 and 1450 are located at the other end of the Col de la Madeleine in the Vallée de Maurienne. Together, these resorts make up Le Grand Domaine, a very diverse ski area with something to offer everyone.

If you are looking to explore beyond the pistes,  there is 15 kmof cross country tracks in the stunning area of Montaimon (approx. 3 km from Valmorel).
