School Ski Trip to France: Val Cenis

Val Cenis is known as the ski capital of the Haute Maurienne Valley and if you are looking for a scenic and unspoilt destination then this really is for you. Composed of two authentic Savoyard villages it has retained its charm and tradition with genuinely warm locals who run the resort themselves.

3 Reasons Why Val Cenis Works for School Ski Trips..

First off, Val Cenis is a great place to ski! With over 125km of piste there really is something for everyone. The resort itself stands at 1400m and the top station goes right up to 2800m so you can see for yourself that the season will go right through the Easter break. We like the way that the runs split so that all standard of skier can be challenged, which means that everyone feels that school-ski-tripit’s value for money.


  • Green 12 runs
  • Blue 19 runs
  • Red 21 runs
  • Black 5 runs

Secondly, Val Cenis is easy to reach. As one of the closest resorts to Calais, shorter travelling distances for your school ski trip means less time on the road and more time having fun on the mountain. It’s that simple!

  • Travel by Coach: 10.5 hours
  • Fly: Chambery, Grenoble, Turin, Geneva, Lyon
