Val Cenis in France’s Maurienne valley continues recent development,  with a new six-pack and two new draglifts planned for next season.

The resort, which was recently linked by lift and piste to smaller Termignon, is improving access above its main village base Lanslevillard. The new modern six-pack (including child safety bars) is due to replace two chairlifts – the short Clot chair that currently serves the nursery slopes, and the nearby St Genix chair that goes a little higher up the slopes. From the top of the new chair, novices will still have access to the gentle green runs that go back to the valley.

In the same area above Lanslevillard, two draglifts (Pont Noir and St Pierre) are to be replaced with new ones. Further along the nursery slopes towards Les Champs and Lanslebourg budding racers will be able to have a go on a new speed course.

Val Cenis Vanoise and Termignon are traditional, quiet and friendly places, sharing 125km of quite varied slopes. Most pistes are north-facing too, so snow reliability is quite good.
