Magnificent ski areas in Vallorcine

Vallorcine is part of ski area Chamonix-Mont Blanc, a collection of several ski areas. Children are able to learn to ski, ice-skate or sled. You yourself are able to (freestyle) ski, snowboard or cross-country ski. Are you in the mood for an adventure? Go ice-climbing with a guide on frozen rivers and waterfalls. Or have yourself be pulled by dogs or horses outside the beaten tracks. Everything is possible!

Ski area La Balme

From Vallorcine, with the ski lift at your doorstep (but also from Le Tour), you reach broad quiet hills that look out over the entire valley of Chamonix. At the side of Vallorcine, you enjoy the slopes hemmed by trees. The 19 ski slopes, of which 11 blue and 8 red, lead you through mountain pastures and forests with a beautiful view of the Mont Blanc, the Swiss Alps and the Emosson dam. After a fantastic descent, you return to Vallorcine at a short walking distance from Dormio Resort Les Portes Du Mont Blanc.
