Skiing in Valloire

Country: France

In a nutshell: An authentic mountain village with some great skiing for beginners and intermediates

We like:

  • The traditional and very French mountain village, centered around a baroque church
  • With 70% of the ski area over 2000m, there’s lots of high altitude skiing
  • Lots of shelter in bad weather thanks to the tree-lined runs
  • Lots for non-skiers to do

We don’t like:

  • Not much good skiing for advanced skiers
  • Still a few too many drag lifts
  • Some flat areas make it hard for snowboarding


  • Resort altitude: 1,500m – 1,900m
  • Highest lift: 2,600m
  • Lowest piste: 1,430m
  • Transfer time from most convenient airport: Geneva, Lyon & Grenoble 2h 20m
  • Number of lifts: 30
  • Number of runs
      • Green: 20
      • Blue: 28
      • Red: 32
      • Black: 9


  • Family friendly
  • Traditional charm
  • Great for beginners
  • Great for intermediates
