Ski in Valloire

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

A great thing about staying in the Residence is that you can ski in many resorts along the Maurienne Valley. Yesterday we went to Valloire with glorious sunshine and great snow. Valloire is about 30 mins drive along a windy mountain road so if it’s really snowy make sure your snow chains are in the car. Having said that, they are really good at clearing the roads. Our advice is to drive through the village and keep going until you get to a small village called Les Verneys. There’s a cash desk to buy your ski pass, lots of free parking and a lift that takes you up to the runs. Lots of skiing for all abilities. If you find the run called the Moulin Benjamin (blue) it ends up by a pretty church and a area full of donkeys! The restaurants are good value, I paid €10 for a large plate of sausage and chips and Anne had a huge savoyade salad for €11. IMG_1093

After a hard day’s work in the residence, there’s nothing better than to spend the day skiing in Val Thorens where there’s great snow and the sun is shining!

as you can see, there’s plenty of snow in VT and the slopes are not crowded. The sun is shining and there’s still time for you to book for guaranteed snow!

There were fireworks at the telecabine and a fantastic 5 course meal in the restaurant! Lots of partying last night and it’s very quiet around the Residence this morning!
