Valmeinier Resort & Transfer Guide

Valmeinier is a small old traditional French village with beautiful French architecture. The name Valmeinier means ‘valley of the mines’. The Valmeinier ski resort is based at the altitude of 1800m with a ski range between 1500m to 2600m covering 150km of piste. Valmeinier is lift linked to the village of Valloire and is the largest of the ski areas with the Maurienne valley. The Valmeinier - Valloire ski area is a famous ski holiday destination brilliant ski opportunities and connections to the Three Valleys.

Ski Resort Location

Valmeinier is located in the Maurienne (France, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Savoie Mont Blanc, Savoie). The resort is divided into two villages that are just 300m apart, close to the Italian border and the Vanoise National Park. Valmeinier combines a traditional mining and farming village, centuries of heritage and stunning views of the surrounding mountains. Located at 1500m, the ski resort has a newer and higher skiing village at 1800m (which was built in 1987). You can use all the facilities in both ski resorts regardless of where you’re staying. Valmeinier 1500 is the quieter of the two villages. Valmeinier 1800 is slightly newer and offers a great choice of bars, restaurants, cinemas, and disco. That is also possible to book sleigh rides via the tourist office.

Multiple hotels will welcome you and ensure a pleasant stay. Valmeinier is protected within the National Park, its landscape is totally unspoiled, guaranteeing stunning views and incredible skiing. Whatever your age and your desire, there is an activity for you.
