Why not ski Valmorel this winter for a pretty village about 90 minutes from Chambéry airport. Our Valmorel ski resort guide can help you decide if this is the place for you and whether the skiing & snowboarding in the French ski area of le Grand Domaine woudl suit. Valmorel offers all levels and abilities alongside some great on and off-piste.
Where Is Valmorel?
The ski resort of Valmorel was built from scratch in the mid-1970s as a car free ski resort - that doesn't overly feel like it. Combined with the neighbouring ski resort of St Francois de Longchamp, you have 50 lifts and 162kms of pistes both below and above the tree-line.
The two ski resorts stretch across the Maurienne and Tarentaise valleys, and with nearest airports at Chambéry and Grenoble, access is good and only about 90 minutes so could be a ski weekend destination to consider.
On the slopes
Ski holidays in Valmorel offer an efficient lift system and access to a wide range of skiing and snowboarding across le Grande Domaine. For beginners there are separate beginner skiing and snowboarding areas close to the centre - an added bonus is that they only require the basic Valmorel ski pass.
Intermediates can head to the Col de la Madeleine, where there are some great runs spread out over a number of small valleys. Advanced skiers can explore the whole area, including some great off-piste couloirs and chutes on powder days including the Massif de la Lauzière that's above St Francois de Longchamp.
If you ski Valmorel you are also in the ski region of Le Grande Domaine.
Off the slopes
The traffic-free main street of Valmorel is built with traditional Savoie stone and wood to create an attractive and friendly resort that is user friendly despite being a 'purpose-built' resort. There are some great places to eat on the mountain Prariond and the Altipano, at the top of the gondola.
Après-ski you can try the terraces of Bourg Morel and Le Grenier, but the main street is the place to go after dark - Le Shaker bar in hotel La Fontaine is recommended for cocktails. It has a good vibrant nightlife which attracts lots of boarders and skiers alike that enjoy hard days and hard nights.
