The Ski Resort

Valmeinier and Valloire together form the Galibier Thabor ski resort, which stretches over the three mountains Le Gros Crey, Le Grand Plateau and La Setaz des Pres. There are a total of 150 kilometres of slopes and 89 downhill runs. Around 70 per cent of the slopes are over 2000 metres in altitude. The location and almost 700 snow cannons ensure snow until Easter. 

Valmeinier - Valloise is particularly suitable for beginners and pleasure skiers with mainly easy to medium difficulty pistes. These easy and long downhill runs are especially found on the eastern slope of the Crey du Quart. Also green marked slopes are not only to be found in the valley area, but also in the higher areas of the ski area. 

Those looking for a challenge will find two black slopes on the Grand Plateau. The Cotérieux leads to Valmeinier, the Méregers to the Valloire valley. Two more demanding descents await you at the Cornafond chairlift on Setaz des Pres. There is also a downhill run equipped with a timekeeping system.

Snowboarders and freestylers won't be bored in Galibier Thabor either, as the Lac de la Vieille snowpark has a diverse structure. It consists of several areas and therefore has the right course for all levels of ability: From the Easy Park with light waves and curves to the 450m long Expert Zone, which is equipped with big airs and handrails. There is also a Cool Zone with music and tables for a short break.
