“The middle area is the most fun”

Ski Area Valmeinier
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Try not to go to the areas surrounding Valmeinier 1800 and Valloire, as they will be really crowded with schools and other people. Instead try to head for the middle area. The armera slope is an absolute must-do if you ask me.

It snowed all night every night and we had fresh powder every day. At 6,000 high the runs at Valmenier are superb for learners and intermediate skiers alike. Valoire is great for off piste and has a few challenging blacks and lots of reds. All in all a superb area for all abilities with great conditions. The accommodation is great too, with a couple of bars, pubs and other night life.

The combined Valmeinier and Valloire ski area is mainly based on 3 areas and has 150 km of runs. The majority are red and blue, with a few testing blacks, and plenty of opportunities for off piste.
There is a good variety too, both above the tree line and some long blues through the trees. In addition is a snow park and boarder cross area in Valloire.
We were there for 5 days and there was plenty to do.
Very likely that we will go back another year

When you buy a ticket for this ski area, you'll also get the access to Valloire and Valloir-Setaz. As they are connected with ski lifts, you can ski in 3 areas with about 150 km of slopes. Most of the slopes are really long ones, so in the beginning you will drive really high to the mountains and can spend very long time untill you reach the valley. Almost all of the slopes start as easy ones ("green" or "blue") and offer an alternative route with "red" or "black" slopes for the experts. If you want to get to a special start, you might change the lifts quite often, as there is no "central starting point" for all of the slopes. I liked it there a lot.
There are not many restaurants or bars near the slopes, so it might be better to bring your own food and drinks with you.
One last advice: You will definitely need snow chains to get to Valmeinier 1800!
