Valmorel is a lovely little ski resort which is situated in the Le Grand Domain ski area, made up of 3 main resorts; Valmorel, Longchamps, and St Francois. It has a good snow record and offers roughly 150km of piste on the local area lift pass.
The ski resort of Valmorel is purpose-built but you would never know it. The big purpose-built resorts in France are often thought of as being ugly monstrosities from the '60s and '70s but Valmorel has to be designed with style in mind. Local materials help to give it a real alpine feel and the resort is traffic free with a lovely little cobbled high street. On top of this, the biggest benefit of Valmorel being purpose-built is that ski access was also thought about when they built the resort. No matter where you are staying in Valmorel you will never be far away from accessing the piste!
