The beautiful ski resort of Valmorel sits in the centre of the French Tarentaise mountains and although purpose-built has the charm and character of an authentic Alpine town. The perfect destination for all kinds of winter holidays, there are sports and activities in Valmorel for all age groups and ability levels - from the kids Piou-Piou club and the many spa centres, to the vast ski area and the high altitude extreme mountain sports, Valmorel has something for everyone. Across meadows, through forests, and down steep mountain summits the ski area of Valmorel, linked with its neighbouring resorts of Saint François Longchamp, Doucy Combelouvière, and Celliers, covers a massive 3,600 hectares and has around 150km of downhill slopes. This Grand Domaine's ski area has fantastic facilities and the slopes are incredibly varied. Between 1,400m and 2,832m the ski area contains numerous slopes and trails for every level of skier and snowboarder. And the SnowZone is perfect for freestylers with its boardercross course, half-pipe, rails, tables, and jumps. The breathtaking landscape of Valmorel also lends itself perfectly to other snow sports. Ski trekking through pine trees and high mountain passes is an awe inspiring activity, and from Celliers you'll find numerous trekking routes for skiers and those wishing to snow shoe across the countryside of the famous Lauzière mountains. The frozen waterfalls of the area make for great ice climbing terrain, and the many snow-covered hills can be enjoyed through tobogganing, airboarding, or snake-gliss. For the adventurers the more extreme activities of paragliding and heli-skiing are also available. Back in the town of Valmorel you'll find the activities don't stop. For relaxation there are many spa centres where you can treat yourself to massages and the other wellbeing facilities, there are a cinema and trampolines which the whole family will enjoy, and throughout this charming well-designed town you can relax in the many restaurants, cafes, and bars during your après ski time - and for the night owls there are clubs open until late.
