Nestled on the mountainside between 1450m and 1650m altitude, the resort of Saint François Longchamp welcomes you to an exceptional setting, protected between the Mont Blanc mountain range on the north and the Pic l'Etendard on the south.
The skiing area of Saint François Longchamp is linked to Valmorel, together these areas form the "Le Grand Domaine" a play park of more than 165km of ski slopes to suit all.
The ski region "Le Grand Domaine" lies below the Col de la Madeleine, between the Massif du Cheval Noir and the Massif de la Lauzière. It stretches over a surface of approx. 3,600 ha and offers 165 kilometres of pistes in various levels of difficulty, with an altitude difference of 1,300 m. In combining the ski areas Valmorel and St. François-Longchamp, a marvellous winter sports setting came alive, which is perfectly connected by 56 lift systems. The sprawling ski area (1,250 - 2,550 m) invites you to take a day tour, the cosy ski huts to come in for a drink.
The pistes are predominantly intermediate, but there are many demanding runs, mogul pistes and countless deep snow possibilities. One of the more challenging pistes is the 1.8 km long "La Luzière", on which you have to overcome a difference in altitude of 700 m.
Exemplary is the large beginners terrain with especially slow lifts, as well as a children's village. The little ones will be supervised, if the big "kids" want to go skiing by themselves. The ideal location means the region is snow-sure until mid-April.
Valmorel's snowpark "Snow Zone" is located in the ski area "Grand Domaine", directly at the tow lift "Le Gollet". Beginners and advanced skiers can enjoy themselves on the tables, slide boxes and kickers. Speed junkies can go crazy on the boarder cross route and the pros among you can let off steam on the park-own 120 m long half pipe.
Those looking for additional freestyle will find a further snow park in St. François-Longchamp, directly next to the ski lift "le Rocher Blanc". Furthermore, there is another boarder cross route below the chair lift "La Lune Bleue".
For a lunch break or on your way into the valley, a stop at one of the cosy huts is worth it. Lively après ski, however, is something this quiet town does not offer: a holiday in St. François-Longchamp means winter sports, relaxation, recuperation, and taking a break from everyday life.
