The resort

Valmeinier was joined with the neighboring area of Valloire just over 30 years ago, but luckily Valmeinier’s traditional charm was not lost. Today this is a popular region offering slopes of varying difficulty.

Feeling festive

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, Valmeinier is the perfect place for getting into the festive spirit. From fireworks to shows, torchlit descents to Christmas parties, and even an appearance from Santa himself, this is a truly traditional resort that’s perfect for adults and children alike.

Activities off the slopes

If you love to shop, head to Valloire on Fridays for the weekly market, where you can get your hands on a variety of local treats. When it comes to the evenings, Valmeinier’s bowling alley is a top spot for a friendly game, or if you’re looking for a relaxing evening there’s a cinema showing movies old and new.

Fabulous for foodies

From dining on a terrace with views of the mountains, to grabbing a quick snack after a busy day on the slopes, Valmeinier has something to suit all tastes. Try some local dishes and tuck into some tasty puddings.
