Valfréjus

General information

Valfréjus is a small and cosy ski resort in the Mauriennedal, close to the Italian border. The 70km ski area mainly consists of blue runs, but also offers excellent off-piste opportunities for the more advanced skier.

The village sits at 1550m and two lifts will take you to the Plateau d’Arrondaz station. There you can take the Punta Bagna gondla to the highest point within the region at 2737m. From here there is a beautiful back slope and many off-piste opportunities to take you back to the Plateau. For those looking for even more excitement, there is a boardercross and 2 bobsled downhill runs of 2km. There is also the opportunity to heli-ski across the border in Italy for a truly unique experience.
