Valfréjus is a family-sized resort, situated 4 hours away from Paris. Nestled in the Thabor
massif, the village-resort has succeeded in remaining an authentic Alpine town, offering a
high quality and varied skiing experience.
Valfréjus continues its construction projects in 2011-2012 with:
The redevelopment of the beginner’s ski area, located on the plateau at 2200m.
The construction of a sledging slope in the Charmasson sector.
The redevelopment of the children’s ski garden (ski schools).
The electrical modernisation of the Col chair lift.
A feasibility study concerning the development of a new ski sector.
The fulfilment of these developments will be subject to authorisation from the necessary
administrative organisations and weather conditions during the inter-season.
On the slopes, 76 snow machines reinforce the resort’s natural snow cover. Ideal for skiers
of all levels, Valfréjus is also known to impress the ski experts with the “wide open space
discoveries” offered by the ski schools and instructors.
For those wishing to try their hand at a different activity, the ski schools and other companies
offer guided snow-shoe walks to discover the fascinating fauna of the magnificent Vanoise
