First station of the Tarentaise, Valmorel was voted best family resort in the world in 2014, during the "World Snow Awards" ceremony. Created in 1976 at an altitude of 1,400 metres, the entirely ski-in ski-out resort was designed in a village atmosphere around a pedestrian street in which we share sincere emotions and real moments that bring us back to what matters the most: the happiness of being together.
Among the considerable assets of the resort:
- A sunny ski area of 165 km, which ensures varied sensations throughout the day, particularly thanks to unexpected landscapes and connections between Doucy, the Col de la Madeleine and Saint-François-Longchamp.
- Never overcrowded, therefore secure slopes, due to the km of slopes (165) to number of beds ratio.
« FAMILLE PLUS Montagne » is the first and unique national tourism label to approve the facilities and services available to families with children staying in French tourist destinations. It is recognized by the French Ministry of Tourism.

Snake Gliss Airboard
The Valmorel ski resort has set up a host of exciting recreational activities for both adults and children, to be enjoyed as family or with friends. Organised by the ESF (French Ski School), there's the Snake Gliss downhill toboggan run, a snake-like sledge that zigzags across the snow. You can also choose to go down on an Airboard, a giant inflatable sledge. These activities take place in the evening after the slopes close.
Le Ski Roc
A great spot for a hot drink mid-morning, a home made vin chaud after a hard day's skiing or a refreshing glass of one of the 7 draught beers in the evening, Ski Roc has something for everyone, at any time of day. The atmosphere is always welcoming and cosy. In the evening the place is usually buzzing, with local DJs providing a soundtrack of smooth music along with the latest releases and more dancey tunes. You may find them playing jazz, acid-jazz, techno jazz, tech-house or drum and bass depending on the night. This hip spot in Valmorel also offers traditional and high quality food, including grilled fish accompanied by a glass of Chignin Bergeron, a good local wine from Savoy.
Les Voiles du Nant
In this high-altitude restaurant, in the heart of the slopes and facing Mont Blanc, the large terrace and solarium of the Voiles du Nant with its tables, sun-loungers and sofas is the prime place for a gourmet break. Here, you can enjoy regional dishes as well as a range of quality fast food. The cuisine is modern and contemporary. The sandwiches and meals on offer are made with fresh products.
