Valloire ski area is situated over 2 valleys. The better of the beginner areas is in the neighbouring valley near the town of Valmeinier with blue runs lining them. Therefore, total beginners will find themselves somewhat restricted until they can handle blue slopes here. Having said this, Valloire has been awarded the Family Plus status, confirming it as a family friendly ski resort.

Val Thorens

Val Thorens is one of the highest ski resorts in Europe. They have a snow guarantee between 25/12/08 to 01/05/09, which means if there are less than 70% of their lifts in action they will refund your lift pass (click the link for more details). Val Thorens height makes it a great option for Easter skiing. It is also part of the 3 Valleys ski area.


Vars combines with Risoul in the next valley to create the "La ForĂȘt Blanche" ski area. The mountain provides skiing for all abilities, but the best of the beginner slopes are on Risoul's side of the hill. Vars offers lots to do in the evening, such as ice skating, night skiing, cinema and a number or pubs, bars and clubs. (The Banana bar at the top of the town is great!).

Villard de Lans

Villard de Lans is quite a small resort. However, it does still provide slopes that will challenge everyone. Off the slopes, there is a lot to do to keep the whole family happy; cinema, themed bars, bowling and a casino. The Family Plus has been awarded to the resort for its efforts to cater well for families.
