La Toussuire Resort Information

La Toussuire in the Maurienne Valley has grown since the 1960's in a panoramic mountain setting, located on a plateau with vast amounts of sunshine. It is predominantly modern, with a car free main street lined with controversial style buildings. The resort has now spread in complete contrast with recently built wooden chalets. As one of the central resorts of the Sybelles network, it is highly recommended for families.

La Toussuire is a friendly family resort, good value for money and uncrowded, with safe and snow sure slopes.

The ski area has grown, but the village remains as friendly as ever. With a 360° panorama, an exceptionally sunny location, the people of La Toussuire have always known how to transmit their joie de vivre through their warm and sincere welcome. La Toussuire is the birthplace of Jean-Pierre Vidal, the Olympic slalom champion and gold medallist at the Salt Lake City Games in 2002.

The village's own 55km ski area is now fully linked into the giant Sybelles circuit which offers an impressive 310km of pistes above the villages of Le Corbier, St Sorlin d'Arves, St Jean d'Arves, Les Bottières, and St Colomban des Villards. The skiing here is suited to all standards and snowboarders have the choice of two terrain parks. The resort has 12,000 tourist beds and allows you direct access to the Sybelles network.

Find out about the linked ski area of Les Sybelles in our Les Sybelles resort guide.

La Toussuire is located on a large plateau which offers a panoramic view. The snow, sunshine, slope orientation and position in an arc around the station are definite assets. The first ski lift was installed in 1936, and since then, the lifts and trails have been subject to continuous improvement. At the base area, there’s space dedicated to beginners, helping to give confidence to people learning to ski. From 1750 to 2400m, both novices and experienced skiers can devote themselves to the joys of skiing, surrounded by vast snowfields.

La Toussuire is fully linked with the Sybelles ski domain, the largest in the Maurienne Valley, with 310km of piste and six resorts (the fourth largest ski domain in France). Other resorts include St Sorlin d'Arves, Les Bottières, Le Corbier, Saint-Jean d’Arves, and Saint-Colomban.

Les Sybelles (a clever play on words – it’s based on “Les Six Belles” – the “six prettiest” – resorts!)  is a huge ski area with two snow parks including thirty modules, an Arvapark, ski routes for hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, and “baptêmes de neige” flights in a microlight or hang-glider. And let’s not forget the gastronomic delights: fondue, raclette, reblochonnade, tartiflette and many traditional Savoyard recipes await you at the local restaurants.
