The Haute Maurienne Vanoise has changed its ski passes for this winter, re-naming its Eski-Mo Ski Pass and adding a new one, both offering access to the valley’s fabulous family-friendly ski resorts for great prices.

The former Eski-Mo Ski Pass has been renamed Espace Haute Maurienne Vanoise — not quite such a snappy name but still great value, offering access to 350km of skiing over six days from just €147. The pass covers skiing all week in whichever resort you are staying (from the six main resorts in the area, including Val Cenis, Valfréjus, Bonneval-sur-Arc, La Norma, Aussois and Bessans, where there is an additional 200km of cross-country skiing), along with a days’ skiing in each of the other resorts included on the pass.

If you want to stay towards the bottom of the valley (from top to bottom, Bonneval to La Norma/Aussois, the Haute Maurienne Vanoise is about a 45-minues drive) new for this winter you can ski for six days between La Norma and Valfréjus for €166. While also being family friendly, these two resorts offer incredible off-piste skiing for experts, with Valfréjus fast acquiring a reputation for speed-riding, too.

There are a few changes to the skiing in the valley this winter. In Bonneval sur Arc, at the top of the valley, a new blue piste (called Bartavelle) has been created from the highest lift-accessed point, meaning all skiers are able to enjoy the views from the 3,000m altitude.

In Val Cenis, a new gondola replaces the old Vieux Moulin, which leaves from the centre of the resort. The new ten-man lift offers the latest — and quietest technology — with a new drag lift running from Plan des Champs, offering faster access to the gondola, particularly for beginners.
