These charming villages have excellent nursery slopes, especially in the village of Lanslevillard. There is also an option to go higher up the mountain and explore some of the tree lined green runs, such as the one starting at the Col du Mont-Cenis.
Val Cenis is idealy suited to intermediates and has a mixture of terrains. The lower half of the ski runs are mainly green and blue tree lined cruiser runs. Higher up the mountain the terrain becomes slightly more challenging with a good number of reds at the top.
Due to most of the runs being north facing Val Cenis has an excellent snow reliability record. There are a couple of black runs around the ski area and also some of the reds runs which are good for a challenge; advanced skiers should try the 400m vertical drop of the Michel Jacot run. For the experienced skier who enjoys the off piste there is a variety available; from open powder fields at the top to tighter tree lined runs at the bottom.
There are nursery slopes beside each village and plenty of confidence building runs. Intermediates will enjoy the more difficult blues and interesting reds above and below the tree-line. There are a few terrain parks in the area with jumps, boardercross track and a natural half-pipe being the main features.
