Valmorel takes center stage as the primary hub within 'Le Grand Domaine,' a ski area it shares with St-Francois and Longchamp. The resort was built from scratch during the mid-1970s, stands apart from its peers in the skiing world. Unlike most purpose-built French resorts, Valmorel's central development radiates the quaint charm of a mountain town, sidestepping the common eyesore. This ski terrain is exceptionally well-suited for beginners and early intermediates with 165km of pistes. Accessible from the summit of the Rocher lift, the main beginner's area provides an ideal starting point. Those looking to progress can hone their skills on the gentle blue runs starting from the summit of the Côte Soleil lift before tackling the blues at the top of the Pierrafort gondola. Advanced skiers have a wealth of options, including 15 kilometers of challenging black runs, the demanding Combe de Riondet snowcross, and formidable off-piste terrain, especially on the Massif de la Lauzière.
