An authentic and welcoming resort village from where you can ski-out and hurtle down 160 km of pistes in the Galibier-Thabor ski area, which is named after the region’s two iconic peaks that rise to over 3,000 m of altitude.
The ski resort of Valmeinier is a village nestled in the heart of the northern Alps. Across its two levels at elevations of 1,500 m and 1,800 m, the resort has managed to preserve its authentic charm.
Valmeinier is a little haven of peace nestled in the hollow of the Maurienne valley. The resort prides itself in sustainable architecture and has made great efforts to blend into the surrounding mountain terrain.
A million miles from the stresses and crowds found in the larger ski resorts, Valmeinier is a distinctively laid-back place where you can recharge your batteries. This is the perfect place for families in search of peace and quiet to unwind. In addition, there are many activities on offer for a winter holiday to remember.
