News

The ski area Valloire is located in the region Rhône-Alpes at the foot of the Col du Galibier. In this community great emphasis is put on hospitality.

Valloire and its neighbouring community Valmeinier form the ski resort Galibier Thabor, which offers 150 km (93 mi) of slopes and 88 ski-runs. 70% of the pistes are above 2000m (2187 yd) altitude. The 31 lift systems enable the short latency time. All in all, the lifts can carry up to 44,000 persons per hour. In case there is no fresh snow, the 400 snow cannons will supply the ski resort with sufficient snow enabling proper snowy ski holidays. What is more, one of the runways has time measurement facilities to track your time.

The snow park Lac de Vieille will certainly serve snowboarders and free stylers alike with varied constructions. It consists of various sub areas and thus offers the right course for winter sports lovers on any level of difficulty, starting from the Easy Park with slight waves and curves up to the Expert Zone, which is facilitated with big airs and hand rails. Additionally, one will find a Cool Zone where music is played and tables wait for you to grab a seat and have a break.
