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.

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.
