La Norma Resort Information

Although a purpose-built resort, La Norma was built in harmony with the surrounding tree-covered mountains. It's surrounding slopes are peaceful and uncrowded.

The Tourist Office organises entertainment for all - find out what at the weekly Sunday evening get-together - and the informal après ski in the relaxed bars and restaurants is excellent.

La Norma is situated at 1350m on a picturesque tree-covered plateau. It has magnificent views of the Vanoise Massif, high above the river Arc. The wooden chalets and apartments seamlessly blend with the surroundings.

La Norma village is at the base of the slopes so there’s no need for a car – and if there’s enough snow you can even jump on your skis and make your way straight down to the lifts.

Non-skiers can enjoy a range of attractions from snowshoe outings and dog-sledge rides to outdoor baths. Popular with French families, La Norma holds the ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ label for its superb facilities for children.

On the edge of the Parc National de la Vanoise, La Norma is an incredibly easy resort to reach. It’s less than 10 minutes’ drive from the motorway exit near the TGV train station of Modane (four hours from Paris by train), and it’s right opposite the Fréjus tunnel to Italy.

La Norma has been rated by clients amongst Peak Retreats’ top resorts for value for money - and it’s easy to see why when you check out the price of accommodation, lift passes, ski school, local bars and restaurants.

Peak Retreats features self-catered apartments in La Norma. The 3* 'Les Balcons d'Anais' offer a convenient location overlooking the slopes and provide the ideal base for a La Norma ski holiday.
