The Ski Resort
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.
The Valfrejus ski area offers around 65 km of pistes. Beginners will find green and blue pistes, especially on the Plateau d'Arrondaz, where they can practice their first turns in the snow. Advanced winter sports enthusiasts are drawn up to Punta Bagna at 2,737 metres. The black marked runs Punta Bagna and Corniche start there. But even less experienced skiers or pleasure carvers can easily take the 6-seater chairlift to the highest point of the ski area. From there, blue and red slopes lead back to the Pleateau.
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 companiesoffer guided snow-shoe walks to discover the fascinating fauna of the magnificent Vanoise National Park. In the valley area there is also a bob park with a 2-kilometre-long toboggan run.
