Résidence La Turra

Résidence La Turra has a beautiful quiet location, surrounded by forest. It consists of four interconnected chalets, just outside the centre of Valfréjus. The piste stops at the door, so when conditions are good you can ski all the way back to the residence. The charming apartments are comfortably furnished, and the use of warm colours will make you feel at home. The rooms feature a range of different comforts including a spacious balcony, extensive kitchenette and modern bathroom.

You can warm up your frozen fingers and toes at the warm fireplace in the lobby, and treat yourself to a nice hot chocolate with whipped cream. There is also the option to relax in the sauna, or take a refreshing dip in the heated outdoor pool.

In the centre of Valfrejus you will find several restaurants and bars were you can enjoy a snack and a drink. You don’t have to go that far though, as you can also enjoy a drink at the Résidence La Turra bar.

Valfréjus

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.

 

New since 2018-2019

Aside from skiing in Valfréjus you now have access to unlimited skiing in La Norma, so a total of 135km is waiting for you. With a 6, 7, or 8 day lift pass you can also ski for 1 day in Aussois, 1 day in Val Cenis, 1 day in Bonneval Sur Arc, and 1 day in Bessans.

 

Aussois

The ski area of Aussois covers a total of 55km of slopes lying between 1350m and 2750m. From the village, 2 chairlifts take you to the top. For advanced skiers, there is an excellent black piste, Balmes, with a daring descent. There are also beautiful red runs that will take you back to the village, and closer to the village is where you will find the blue and green runs. Aussois really offers something for everyone, from those on their first runs to the more experienced skier.

 

La Norma

The ski area of La Norma is largely located in the woods and provides snow-sure slopes due to most of the slopes being situated in the northern area of the mountains. It has some 65km of varied pistes for both beginners and advanced skiers. Advanced skiers should head to the Mezelet descent or the black piste, La Norma II. The Repose descent is suitable for everyone, allowing all levels of skiers to refine and retune their technique.

 

Val Cenis

Val Cenis provides 125km of wonderful pistes for both novice and advanced skiers. The longest green run in Europe, l’Escargot, is found in Val Cenis and there are 19 ski lifts connect the villages of Lanslebourg and Lanslevillard. The lower slopes are far easier and mainly meander through the woods. There are also 2 snow parks, ideal for snowboarders, found on the slopes of the Familiale and St. Pierre.
