Val Cenis Resort Details

Val Cenis is located in the Maurienne valley in France at 1400m with a ski range between 1400m and 2800m it offers 80km of piste serviced by 20 lifts.

The main village are Lansiebourg and Lansievillard with lifts departing from both and criss cross the valley between. The main gondola departs from Lansievillard. Above the mid station the runs are mainly open and above the tree line, below the mid station there are some pretty tree lined runs.

Most of the run face north so tend to hold their snow well through out the season, good snow cannons cover the lower homeward runs.

Ski Line offers self catered apartments and hotels, we only have a limited selection of catered chalets so early booking is recommended if you want a chalet.
