Valmorel

With its authentic houses built in chalet style Valmorel closely resembles a quaint little mountain village and is very popular with visitors today. Located on the edge of the forest, Valmorel merges with its beautiful surroundings.

From the easy and popular pistes on the Beaudin you can ski directly to St. François Longchamp. For the advanced skiers and snowboarders the long black pistes are definitely a highlight in the area. There is a snow park with a half pipe for snowboarders and for cross country skiers there are cross country skiing tracks located a few kilometers down the road and can be reached by bus. Because the tracks run through the lower laying valley, there is no continual snow fall here.

Valmorel also has more than 15 kilometers of hiking trails. The trails cut through a forested area and take approximately 1.5 to 3 hours to hike. Of course Valmorel also has plenty to keep you entertained off the pistes. There are numerous shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and even two cinemas in the lively centre of Valmorel.

Valmorel is the ideal destination for families and visitors looking for a relatively peaceful ski village!
