WE LIKE

  • Extensive terrain for intermediates. Beginners will love it here too.
  • Good value resort. Not that well known outside of France, so a good place to come if you want to get away from the Brits.
  • Traditional and friendly village that offers some great skiing close to the resort.

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Sun and warmer temperatures can mean detoriating snow conditions on some pistes.
  • Some bottlenecks around some chairlifts in the morning.
  • Nightlife is limited and not exactly a wild party - but that's good for some.

On the slopes

There are three slope areas that make up the 150km+ of pistes when you ski Valloire ski resort: Le Setaz, Le Crey du Quart and Valmeinier, with most altitudes reaching well above 2,000m providing for excellent snow conditions during the season. The pistes are mostly large and gentle which provides for monoskiing, carving, and telemarking.

The trademark of the resort slopes is length as some runs reach past 1,000 vertical feet making it an excellent place for beginners to learn although more advanced and expert skiers may enjoy the trails at the Le Crey Rond. Many experts also enjoy hiring a private local guide to explore even more skiing options well off the beaten path. Snowboarders are also welcome to enjoy the Valloire ski resort along with many snow park options to fine tune the skill. There are also many nursery areas and ski schools for those who seek instruction during their holiday.
