Great prices and great skiing on a ski trip to Val Cenis

With a 1,500m elevation drop and 125 km of Alpine slopes, this French resort has created multi-medal-winning champions such as Pierre-Emmanuel Dalcin. The area has a great snow record, starting early and always finishing late, and so is recommended for school groups planning an Easter or December trip. As a relatively unknown ski region, the slopes are quieter which means fewer queues and better value accommodation, making Val Cenis a great option for school groups on a budget.

Located in the Haute-Maurienne region of the Northern Alps, Val Cenis has 125 km of slopes connected by 28 fast lifts. With 200 snow cannons and North facing orientation, Val Cenis is a reliable resort with a long ski season. Offering a decent number of green, blue, red runs as well as five black runs and two boardcross slopes, the region caters well for beginners and intermediates who will be able to enjoy the thrill of the mountain top as well as the beautiful tree-lined runs below. School groups love the 900m long toboggan run which is accessed by the Val Cenis le Haut gondola lift.


  • A hidden gem which is perfect for beginners and intermediates
  • Reliable snow conditions, late into the season
  • Great value option for school groups travelling by coach
Val Cenis Au Pays des Loups

Au Pays des Loups

  • A well-appointed and comfortable group accommodation centre offering 2 to 5 beds per room with en suite bathrooms and a capacity nearing 120. It is run by a group that specialises in youth accommodation which means it simple in style but with everything your group needs.
  • The centre is located 3km outside the main resort and is a 5 minutes coach trip to the ski school and lift system at Termignon. Termignon itself is at the top of the Maurienne Valley near the Italian border, at the opposite end of the Frejus tunnel from Bardonecchia. The centre is only recommended for groups with their own coach.
  • The youth centre has a restaurant, its own infirmary, games rooms and plenty of space for groups. Wifi is included.
  • Full board with picnic lunch.
