Valmorel is an ideal resort for beginners with many English speaking instructors at the ski school and our superb value First Time packages. There are 15 acres of piste exclusively reserved for beginners in the ski school. Gentle, tree-lined runs leading back to the resort are perfect for building up confidence at the same time as enjoying spectacular mountain scenery.
The Altispace 4-man chairlift will give you fast access to the skiing from the village. Excursions can be made across to the villages of St François, Longchamp or Doucy for lunch and you can still make it back in time for a couple of red runs down the Gollet before the lifts close.
