Probably the worst place of the Alps, unfortunately .... as everyone else wrote, the snow shortage is very big. Have been there with the family a number of times (6 times in total !!) since they can rent the apartment there cheaply, but it really does not.

very flat slopes and the offpiste is a joke in itself, you completely cut the board on all rocks and rocks, but most times it has not even been possible to go for a little snow.

Nightlife does not exist. There is no nightclub. If you want to party, do it on La Contline in their hotel bar. They are open until 01:00 but at noon. At noon there is never more than 10 people there ........

must unfortunately see this resort in total! There are so many better options available!

However, it's perfect for my parents who ski for 2 days in a week and go to bed at 22 :(

Unfortunately, the snow shortage was noticeable when I was there, several runs closed due to the landmark. Saw some really nice rocks and other nice scratches I would have liked to have tested if the conditions had allowed. Valoire was good and fun the park should be able to work really well with a snout snow and the "associated" button ...

- So incredibly snow dependent ... watch out for snow reports

- * The accommodation * should be looked a little extra. Everything felt very provisional, under construction o all that meant ... Skim solutions simply.

- "The village" was very small = inadequate range of evening activities.

+ "The village" was very small = early mornings.

+ Close to Val Thorens. Do not be ashamed of those who have access to a car / bus.

and finally:
There are no "difficult" backs we are talking about, typical family resort with a lot of "puckelpist"

Unfortunately, it was snowy when I was there because a very limited range of slopes pissed and raised. Keep an eye on snow depths and open slopes. Granndalen Valoire had a slightly better relationship. But as said both resorts require snow.
If there is snow, I would say the skiing is unlimited.
Valmenier typical family resort with moderate nightlife.

Valmeinier has the most offpiste with rocks and some joints, but if you turn the HELA lift system you can reach Valoire, where you will be offered nice slopes and a fun park.
