The ski domain of Val Cenis

The biggest ski domain of High Maurienne Vanoise is located at the feet of the legendary Mont-Cenis pass, historical border between France and Italy. 125km of slopes on 1500m of difference of height. A large playground, no matter what your level or goal is. The snow amount is generous between december and april due to the famous “retour d’est” a meteorological condition that brings lot of snow in a short period of time.

Beginners or experienced skiers will find their happiness with the variety of ski types, with some connected picture spots and the canopee summit; circular steel platform overhanging the frozen water of the Mont Cenis Lake.
From a hill to another, evolve in altitude or inside the cembro pine and larch forests.
It’s not surprising at all that Val Cenis is the birthplace of many champions like Yves Dimier, 3 podiums in slalom world cup or Pierre Emmanuel Dalcin, winner of the downhill skiing worldcup of Val D’Isère in 2007.

So, ready to slide with your family the 1500m of difference of height of the Val Cenis ski domain ?
