Val Cenis

Lanslevillard village, Val Cenis Val Cenis is a ski resort in the Savoie region of France. It is in the Haute Maurienne valley between the Vanoise National Park and Mont Cenis Pass, on the border with Italy.

The ski area includes the villages of Lanslebourg, Lanslevillard and, since 2008, Termignon. These villages close to the crossing point between France and Italy, are characterized by a rich architectural heritage typical of border areas. These villages are surrounded by wild and varied countryside with exceptional views of the valleys, lake and alpine pass.

The slopes of the alpine ski area descend between rocky peaks and pine forests and are suitable for all levels of skier. There are also a number of off-piste routes perfect for free ride skiing. The area offers a snow park, a boarder cross and a 900 metre toboggan run for the delight of young and old.

It should be noted that Val Cenis offers the Eski-mo ski pass meaning that with a single pass, skiers can discover the areas of five Haute-Maurienne ski resorts.
