A haven for rookies and improving skiers, Val Cenis is Haute Maurienne's largest ski resort. Flying under the radar, this cluster of five charming French Savoyard villages is a great place to escape the crowds and unwind. Plus, it's great value compared to its well-known neighbour, Val Thorens.
Head to Lanslevillard for the best nursery slopes and to enjoy a vast network of sunny green slopes, including L'Escargot, the longest in Europe. Practise your turns and build confidence on forgiving blues before tackling challenging reds.
