Nestled in the foothills of the Col de Madeleine lies the charming village Valmorel. Allthough Valmorel is very young for European standards (it was created in the 2nd half of the 20th century) its makers continued the alpine tradition and used only materials such as wood and rock. The results are beautiful ski lodges, picturesque back yards and an ample pedestrian zone.
Le Grand Domaine offers 165 km (ca. 102 mi) of slopes for beginners as well as for advanced skiers. Almos 50 lifts connect the villages Valmorel, Saint-François-Longchamp, Doucy and Celliers. Six fun zones including snowparks, boarder cross and the Pirate Adventure Zone guarantee a lot of fun. Ski schools offer their services also in foreign languages, a real plus feature for France!
