Maurienne Valley: Top quality with SnowTrex Ski Holidays

01/31/2013 - SnowTrex

An insider’s tip, the Maurienne Valley: lots of skiing for small prices.

A large ski area with wonderfully prepared pistes and lots of space to carve and board – this is the winter sports fan’s dream. The ski area of Val Cenis is located in the heart of the French Savoyard Alps, in the Maurienne Valley and can fulfil these wishes: The fairly large, yet not crowded ski area offers over 120 km of piste together with the neighbouring resort Termignon and reaches up to 2,800 metres altitude. Therefore the area benefits of ideal snow conditions over various months throughout the winter season. There is something for everyone here, be it the longest beginner’s piste in Europe or a challenging black run. Even snowboarders can get going in the two snow parks with half-pipes and boarder cross. Val Cenis is also not far away from Val Thorens and therefore a day trip to the famous “3 Vallées” is worth while the effort.

The special thing about the resort: In comparison with other French ski resorts Val Cenis was not purposely built but rather grew naturally and has therefore maintained its typical Savoyard Alpine charm. Friendly locals, picturesque alleys and the excellent French cuisine make a stay in Val Cenis an unforgettable event. With SnowTrex, the largest German specialist tour operator for winter sports holidays, skiing fans can book quality accommodations in Val Cenis for really attractive prices. The comfortable apartments lie directly on the piste and offer a great panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. One week, including a 6-day lift pass is already available at £86 per person.

The Maurienne Valley has more to offer: The ski resorts Valfréjus and Valmeinier offer a similar price-service ratio with wonderful accommodations, large ski areas (up to 150 kilometres of piste) and low prices (one week, including lift pass from £68 per person).
