    Saint-François-Longchamp

    Favorite thing: This is the other resort of "le grand Domaine". As you can see on the picture the architecture is already much less attractive.

    Quite funny: this is quite fast to go from Valmorel to Saint-François by ski. However if we have to take the car, that would take more than an hour for about 100km.. There is no road crossing the mountain and by car you have to drive around it...
    When skiing, better go back to the other valley on time otherwise if you are stuck, calling a taxi would be quite expensive!!

    Big advantage of this resort, it is still sunny in the afternoon!! In the morning, you can go skiing in Valmorel to enjoy the sun and come back in the afternoon to enjoy again the sun...
    Of course if there is not much snow, it would first melt in this valley...

    Valmorel

    Favorite thing: Charming resort with a traditional architecture respecting the mountain. Local people are also quite friendly...
    The only drawback of this resort is the fact it is splitted in different parts linked by the 'Telebourg', a cable car working only untill 11:30pm.
    If you want to go out in the centre of the restort, too bad, you'll probably have to come back by foot!!

    About skiing most of the runs are sunny in the morning. Unfortunately the shadows start covering them in the early afternoon... In january when the weather is particulary cold, it is not so fun to ski on a run in the shadows!!
    At least this has an advantage : the snow stay longer than in the other valley...
