Valmorel ski & snowboard holidays take you to a charming resort in the heart of the Tarentaise. Though purpose built, it has a traditional atmosphere as the materials used in its construction are in keeping with the landscape. The resort lies at an altitude of fourteen hundred metres with the highest lifts rising to over two thousand five hundred metres. Valmorel is a popular choice for families as the resort is traffic free and has door-step skiing. There is also a designated children's ski area and there are several options for childcare. Ski kindergarten is available from the age of three.
Valmorel provides one hundred and fifty kilometres of runs. Although the majority are more suited to the beginner and intermediate skiers, the resort has several demanding black runs which will test the ability of experienced skiers. Those who are new to the sport have a large designated area where they can, with the help of ski school instructors, gain in both skills and confidence. There are many easy tree-lined runs down to the village. Intermediates likewise have a wide range of blues and reds that can take them to neighbouring resorts. As well as the black runs for experienced skiers, there are plenty of off-piste opportunities with steep runs and couloirs. Just remember to take a mountain guide. There is also a snowpark for boarders.
The Valmorel ski season begins in the second week of December and ends in the first week of April. Summer sees an influx of climbers, hill walkers and mountain bikers as well as those who want to relax amid splendid scenery and enjoy fresh alpine air.
