Ski Area

FROM DECEMBER 17, 2022 TO APRIL 16, 2023

Located near the Parc de la Vanoise in Savoie, Le Grand Domaine includes the resorts of Valmorel, Saint-François-Longchamp, Doucy and Celliers. A sunny ski area with 165km of pistes.

The Valmorel resort will open its lifts as normal this winter.

The objective of gradually achieving energy sobriety has been set for several years now at Valmorel, while continuing to preserve the service provided to our customers. Efforts in this direction will be stepped up, while maintaining the constant objective of adapting the ski product to the number of visitors and thus optimising energy consumption.

For example, this adaptation will allow the Valmorel ski area to modulate the speed according to the number of visitors to the area or to shift the times of snowmaking to avoid peaks in consumption.

165km of slopes !

Between forests, gentle alpine meadow slopes and steeper slopes at the summits, the Grand Domaine gives you the opportunity to enjoy a varied playground accessible to all levels of skiers. Young and old can easily cross the Col de la Madeleine on skis with a simple “blue slope”.

A true paradise for lovers of ski touring and off-piste, a huge variety of breathtaking landscapes between pine trees and high mountains.
