Ski area Val Cenis Vanoise

Ski area Val Cenis Vanoise

With the lift pass "Val Cenis Vanoise", you have access to a total of 125 km of prepared pistes and 28 lifts and gondolas in Val Cenis' and Termignon's ski area. Amongst this, there is a 6-person chair lift, "La Turra", with which the connection to the Termignon ski area was enabled in 2008. This lift is one of the fastest chair lifts in Europe, meaning that waiting times are short!

As the ski area is located on the northwest side of the Mont Cenis, it is highly snow-sure. The snow stays fresh for a long time, and in the afternoon you can enjoy the sun at one of the mountain huts. In the forest you can explore fascinating tree runs, and off-piste you'll find interesting canyons and natural pipes. Some people have actually jumped from the roof of a snowed-in mountain hut. While experienced skiers get a thrill on the "Michèle Jacot de la Met" run (starting 2,800 m), the less advanced have a go on the longest beginners ski run in Europe – the "Escargot" (in English: "snail"). Enthusiasts will have fun in the two snow parks on different altitudes, including a boardercross.

In the approx. 35 km distant Orelle you will find the perfect access point to the ski area Val Thorens, in the centre of the 3 Valleys. This excursion into the world's largest ski area should be a part of every holiday!

With the lift pass "ESKI-MO", you can enjoy the pistes in Val Cenis Vanoise as well as one day of skiing in the ski areas Aussois, La Norma, Valfréjus and Bonneval sur Arc. The ski areas are easily reachable with the free ski bus. This means that there are over 300 km of pistes waiting to be discovered!

Night skiing Val Cenis

If the regular offer is not enough and if you have enough power left for further sporting activities, you should not miss out on night skiing in the ski area Val Cenis Vanoise. Every Thursday the "La Colomba" piste's opening hours are extended from 20:00 to 22:00, so that you can enjoy skiing in flood- and moonlight until late in the evening. The night skiing piste is approx 1.5 km long. As a piste marked in green, it is also ideal for young skiers and beginners. Night skiing is possible directly from the resort district Lanslevillard.

Après ski Val Cenis

Après ski fun begins in the afternoon, on the sun terraces and in the lodges and restaurants in the ski area. For entertaining evenings, there are many restaurants, which serve traditional Savoyard delicacies to pizzerias, so there is something to suit everyone’s taste buds. Highly recommended is a visit to the crêperie, as this typical French speciality should not be passed up.

A livelier atmosphere can be found in the bars and pubs! Here you can see out the day with a cosy drink or two. A disco will make sure that party goers have a great time!

For everyone who wants a break from the piste, there are countless attractive alternatives: from tobogganing through dog-sledding to paragliding or snow-shoe hiking amongst the snowy landscape. If you’re looking to relax, then you will find a 150 m² spa area in the “Aqua Spa Institut”. In addition, there is an indoor pool, ice-rink, as well as a bowling centre.

Snowpark: Snowpark Val Cenis

With your lift pass you have the access to 2 snow parks in Val Cenis where the powder snow slopes are located. Here you will also find boardercross runs.

The nearby 3 Vallées is recommended to those who are looking for an extensive freestyle opportunity. The distance to the access point in Orelle is approx. 35 km. Several highlights can be experienced in the largest ski area in the world: The snow park in Val Thorens and the "DC Area 43 Snow Park" in Méribel are really special. The DC park, developed by the European X - Games superpipe shaper Benjamin Ravanel, leaves nothing to be desired. An excursion into the 3 Vallées is definitely worth for those who are thirsting for a unique freestyle and freeride adventure!
