Doorstep skiing at Valmeinier 1800

High in the French Alps at 6000ft the resort of Valmeinier is a sensational find, an undiscovered ‘jewel in the Alps’. Located high in the Maurienne Valley, Valmeinier attracts good snow falls, being only 10 minutes as the crow flies from Val Thorens and its glaciers.

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced skier, this is one of the few resorts that solves the problem of families and groups of different skiing abilities. The small and modern ski village at 1800 is beautifully built in an aesthetically pleasing style, which merges modern design with tradition. Valmeinier 1500 is an old, picturesque mountain village, harmoniously nestling in the slopes just a short ski down from our club hotel.

Valmeinier 1800 ski area

Enjoy dramatic scenery with varied and extensive skiing. An excellent ski system encompassing 3 valleys, this area has all the ingredients that will make it a big hit as it offers superb skiing for everyone.

You can enjoy skiing above the tree line on wide pistes or take scenic routes through the trees down to the rustic villages of Valloire and Les Verneys.

The excellent nursery slopes are right by the hotel, and the resort prides itself on its quality grooming, which will boost the confidence of the beginner skier. You can then progress to the leisurely blue runs near the hotel and cross the valley to Valloire.

The fast chair lift just outside our club hotel takes you to a vantage point from where you can ski back to 1800 or head off towards Valmeinier 1500. You can ski directly to le Crey du Quart and Valloire on the piste behind Hotel L’Aigle and you can also ski back to below 1800 directly from Valloire and get the fast lift up in to 1800. Maximise your time on the slopes, starting on that first chair up in the morning and skiing that last possible run back in the evening.

There is a selection of mountain restaurants and bars, which enjoy a good reputation for quality and reasonable prices.

Lift Pass – Valmeinier/Valloire

Intermediates Few resorts can be so attractive to all levels of intermediate and recreational skiers. There are runs of every type either to cruise on, or to try something more difficult. You can enjoy the entire area from Valmeinier 1800 right across to Valloire and Les Verneys.

Lift Pass – Valmeinier/Valloire

Advanced Combine a maximum number of km/day with real quality skiing on the good selection of challenging red and black runs. The extensive off-piste and powder possibilities are wonderful with a local guide; the powder remains untracked for days. Overall, a great uncrowded area, offering high-calibre skiing.

Lift Pass – Valmeinier/Valloire

Snowboarding An excellent area for the intermediate and advanced boarder. The wide open, well-groomed pistes are a great confidence booster. This expansive area offers fantastic variety to keep even the most experienced boarder occupied all week!

Much more skiing with Snowcoach

Explore the mountains around Valmeinier, discover the ski pistes and have a lot of fun!

At the moment, due to a recent court ruling in France, ski companies are not allowed to offer guided or accompanied skiing. This is disappointing as we are aware that our guests do value being shown around the mountain. There is likely to be an appeal and as soon as we can we will re-instate our ski exploring programme in full.

In the meantime, we will introduce similar standards of skiers to each other so that you can form your own group to explore the mountain at your own pace. For those who would like to take part, a member of our staff will meet our guests outside the hotel and you can decide which group you would like to join - fast reds/blacks, medium reds/blues and slow blues.

The staff are living in the resort all season, so they will be best placed to help with all your ski related queries, from helping with your ski hire at the start of the week, to recommending the best local snow conditions and the nicest mountain restaurants.

We will provide each group with suggested routes and itineraries for the different levels showing you the best places to ski, our favourite restaurants, good viewpoints etc. You must be able to ski a minimum of a blue piste to take part. We will suggest a central lunch time meeting spot so there is plenty of time to catch up with other friends in different groups and family and ski with them in the afternoon.

Skiing with friends is the perfect way for you to...
