Val Cenis

The Resort: Val Cenis is a beautiful resort, mainly attracting French & Italian tourists - the ideal spot if you are looking for an authentic French ski holiday away from the crowds, but still with a good record of snow.

The Pistes: Although it is a smaller resort it still has 125km of skiable terrain, offering a great range of pistes - favouring the intermediate level skier. The resort holds the longest green slope in the Alps and has blue runs that run right from the top of mountain to the bottom meaning that skiers and boarders of all abilities can enjoy the stunning scenery that Val Cenis has to offer.

Facilities & Apres-ski: There is a nice selection of bars and restaurants throughout the 3 villages that make up Val Cenis, providing a variety of places to dine and enjoy after piste drinks. Though not suited to party animals, with nearly all places closing by 11pm, it is a perfect environment for a family snow holiday.
