Valmorel is the main resort in this ski region. It is a modern and well-planned French ski village with a good selection of Alpine bars and restaurants in its pedestrianised heart. The Valmorel piste map shows that the resort is linked to St Francois Longchamp which expands the skiable area considerably. Valmorel is at 1350m in the middle of a bowl and there are many tree lined runs leading into the village, higher altitude skiing is available above the tree line up to 2400m and this provides free riders some great off piste skiing opportunities. The snow record in Valmorel is good, even though the resort itself is lower than many of its neighbours.

The slopes in this around the ski village, as show on the Valmorel Piste Map, are generally blue and there are a lot of nursery areas, so this resort does suits beginners very well. Most skiers staying in Valmorel ski village will look to take the Altispace 1 and Altispace 2 chairlift, or the Pierrafort bubble lift, both of which arrive at ski learning areas and beginner zones. Therefore, those who are just starting out should feel free to venture away from the village centre knowing that there are an abundance of green runs and beginner snow parks dotted around the ski resort. The Altispace lifts also arrive close to the “Les Pirates” snow park, a fun filled ski area designed for young children. This is convenient, as from here adults can venture off too many different ski areas.

This leads in to what Valmorel is probably best for – intermediate skiing. There are 30 blue ski runs and 15 red ski runs, which makes up around 75% of the Valmorel ski resort. Heading over towards St Francois Longchamp gives access to another large range of red and blue runs. For example, “La Madeleine” is a long blue run which cuts down the mountain edge before entering the tree line around 2000 metres up. The Madeleine chairlift also gives access to 2 other red runs, and three other blue runs. The Col Du Mottet peak is another great ski area for intermediate skiers, offering great views of the surrounding mountains, along with a thrilling red run starting from the peak, 2403 metres up. Advanced skiers should also head to this area as they can access the “Riondet” ski area. This area is “off the beaten track” and there is a long unpisted black “Free ride du Riondet” ski run which heads towards St Francois Longchamp ski area.

Overall, Valmorel is a charming ski resort which caters to all ability of skier. In particular, beginners and intermediates will find that the resort is almost completely accessible to them, where are advanced skiers should venture to the higher up off piste areas.
