The beautiful Maurienne Valley is home to no fewer than 24 great skiing resorts, each with their own charm and character. The Valley offers 75 miles of stunning scenery and unspoilt scenery with easy access from Chambery Airport.
A popular resort to suit all tastes and budgets. It has nearly 100 miles of slopes with mainly north facing slopes meaning that the snow conditions are almost guaranteed to be perfect during peak season.
Val Cenis is made up of two traditional villages: Lanslebourg and Lanslevillard, which have become one resort. It is a perfect resort for beginners and intermediates as it has plenty of green and blue runs.
A great family resort with ski runs to suit all levels and ages. It’s a great place to combine sunshine and skiing and the village has a real historic feel with its stone and slate houses.
Another brilliant family resort. Saint Jean belongs to one of the largest ski areas in the valley ‘Les Sybelles, sharing over 200 miles of runs with neighbouring resorts.
With these and 20 more great places to choose from, it may take you a while to choose a resort. The easy part is booking your cheap flight to Chambery at Jet2.com, as the airport is the gateway to the whole of the Maurienne Valley.
