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!

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).
