Valmorel is one of the prettiest of the modern ski resorts, carefully and sympathetically designed to reflect traditional Savoyard living while equally providing a bustling, pedestrianised village full of intimate restaurants, bars and boutiques. It is a perfect destination for family holidays.
The skiing is accessible from the centre of town as well as from the nearby village of Doucy thanks to a series of lifts. For intermediates, there are many long runs at high altitude and pretty pine forested paths, whilst testing black runs and extensive off-piste skiing will challenge the more advanced. There is a separate beginner’s ski area close to the village, several easily reached green runs, and another learning area specifically for snowboarders. For free riders and snowboarders the ski area of Valmorel offers 2 snow parks and 2 boarder-crosses. To join the area of St-François-Longchamp from here and enjoy the 165km of pistes of Grand Domaine ski area, you simply take the “Madelaine” chair lift.

Le Petit Prince is a charming Savoyard restaurant with lovely desserts.
For anyone who doesn’t ski or just wants to try something else, there is a large choice of other activities to do. There are typical winter activities such as cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice climbing, paragliding, speed riding, sledging or ice skating. But there is also a cinema, a bowling alley, a spa and swimming pool facilities. In nearby Saint-François-Longchamp there is “La Comète” which is a 900m toboggan on tracks, a great way to have fun at any age and at any season.
Among many other activities to enjoy during the summer, you can go cycling, climbing, hiking, horse riding and paragliding. But there are also all the white water sports, as well as many cultural sights and local museums to visit.
Lots of events are organised every week in the resorts and there is a special week for Christmas with lots of different shows. Valmorel is part of the “Tournoi des Six Stations” which is a rugby tournament on snow. The resort also hosts the “Mets d’la Wax” film festival centred on mountains sports. Other events throughout the year include concerts, themed events, shows, sports competitions, the list goes on.
