Modern, purpose-built resort
150km of downhill skiing
Suitable for all abilities
Take a school ski trip to Valmeinier and ski at the crossroads of the Northern and Southern Alps! Valmeinier is a small, traditional village that is linked to the rest of the Valloire, making this the largest ski area in the region. The resort itself is set at 1800m, between the Vanoise and Ecrins National Parks. Valmeinier 1800 is a modern, purpose-built resort, constructed in a style that compliments its unspoilt, rural surroundings. It’s also really compact and peaceful, which makes it ideal for school ski groups. For après-ski entertainment, there are cinemas, a bowling alley and a small selection of cafes, restaurants and shops. Need more? The neighbouring village of Valloire is just a short drive away.

Valmeinier has direct access to 150km of downhill skiing, with 89 individual pistes that are served by 30 ski lifts. There are a variety of pistes suitable for all levels of ability, including wide blue and red ‘motorways’ and tougher descents, such as the excellent ‘JMB’, which heads down towards Valloire or the mogul fields. Advanced skiers will also enjoy the ‘Cascade’ and ‘Olympic’ pistes, two of the nine blacks in the area. Valmeinier also has a great snow record. And, if Mother Nature decides she wants to be difficult, snow cannons cover 50km of the runs.
Very good for intermediate skiers.
