Valmorel is the main ski area in the Grand Domaine ski region that offers over 150 km of piste, from 1400 to 2100m. Valmorel is aimed at intermediate skiers, although beginners will find some nice easy runs on which to learn. Advanced skiers may not have too many runs to keep them occupied, however, there is some very good off-piste skiing, if conditions permit. The village of Valmorel is quite low but you can usually ski to the door due to the new snow cannons. In 2011 they upgraded the lift system giving easier access to the Grand Domaine. There are some great restaurants and bars both on and off the piste. Night life is OK, it is not as lively as some resorts but there are plenty of bars to quench your thirst.

    Visitor Reviews of Valmorel

    Émilie from Belgium writes:

    Valmorel est une très belle station comme on se l'imagine avec des gros châle st en bois et une rue centrale piétonne avec les commerces qui a un petit cachet Italien par ses fresques et son ambiance chaleureuse et animée. La station est très agréable aussi bien pour ma femme qui ne skie pas mais fait des balades à pieds et des activités diverses ( Spa...) que pour moi qui suis skieur. J ai fait au moins 20 stations en France et en Suisse, je la classe dans le top 3
