Ski hire Valmeinier
Valmeinier or the family resort par excellence. This small village in Savoie, perched above the Maurienne valley, has managed to develop its tourist potential over the last forty years to become a winter sports destination that is as accessible as it is pleasant. Only 17km from Saint Michel de Maurienne, Valmeinier is ideally situated to come by train or car and enjoy quality snow all season long, thanks to its mostly north-facing slopes. So ready for a carefree ski trip!
A family resort
Valmeinier has not only managed to take advantage of its natural and climatic wealth to attract winter holidaymakers, but it is now doing much better by offering almost "à la carte" services. For example, the Savoyard resort pays particular and personalized attention to the reception of families. The Galipettes daycare center and its staff take care of the little ones, from the age of 3 months, from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, all week long. From the age of 5, budding skiers can try their first runs in the snow garden to get their first snowflake at the end of the week. The shops within walking distance and the variety of accommodations offer multiple options for families with varying budgets and comfort expectations. So this winter, will you choose to come to Valmeinier with your tribe? We recommend it!
A preserved local culture
Did you know that Valmeinier owes its name to the presence of silver copper and lead ores, which the village exploited in the 18th century? Valmeinier was indeed "Val-minier" before the mines closed and tourism appeared. The inhabitants of the village, at 1500m, are very attached to their heritage and their culture. So take advantage of your stay to discover all these treasures, such as walking around the wooden and stone chalets, entering its 18th century church... Taste also the alpine gastronomy which will regale your taste buds after having slid down the slopes: charcuterie and white wine of Savoy (to be consumed with moderation), tartiflette or croziflette in dish of resistance and blueberry pie to finish! Local producers also open their doors to you, to bring back some greedy souvenirs at the end of your stay... Just to keep the vacations going a little longer!
Skiing yes, but not only....
Of course, if you come to Valmeinier, it's to enjoy the snowy slopes. And there it is only happiness! Linked to its neighbor Valloire, Valmeinier offers you the Galibier Thabor domain, stretching between 1430m and 2600m, on more than 150km of slopes. Above your heads, the Mont Thabor, located at 3178m, watches over each of your descents and offers you an exceptional panorama to catch your breath between your turns! But for those who want to alternate pleasures, Valmeinier offers a whole range of activities, whether they are sports or cultural, nature or relaxation: snowshoeing or dog sledding, sledding, cinema, wellness center, museums and local markets ... You will be spoilt for choice!
