St Sorlin d'Arves

Thinking of skiing in St Sorlin d'Arves? Sitting on a high sunny plateau above the Maurienne Valley, Saint Sorlin is surrounded by majestic peaks such as the 3500-m Aiguilles d'Arves and L'Etendard.

Why St Sorlin d'Arves Ski Resort?

  • Stunning scenery
  • Traditional village with welcoming ambience
  •  Fully linked to the Sybelles ski domain

St Sorlin Resort Information

This is a quaint mountain village of carefully preserved Savoyard farmhouses and long-established shops built around an early 17th century Baroque church. 

Saint Sorlin is a proud community that has successfully managed to preserve its ambience and traditions down the years – on feast days the villagers dress up in their colourful traditional costume. You can visit the farmhouse cheese factory to watch Beaufort being made, and the village museum provides a fascinating insight into an Alpine community where the pace of life has always been dictated by the seasons.

At the same time Saint Sorlin caters for the exacting demands of a 21st century ski holiday with a choice of restaurants, bars, a ‘traiteur’ selling delicious regional specialities, and even a hairdressing salon.

Peak Retreats features a range of ski apartments in Saint Sorlin d'Arves. All our accommodation is hand-selected and chosen to provide an ideal base for a St Sorlin ski holiday. 

SAINT SORLIN SKIING

The village's own 120km ski area is now fully linked into the giant Sybelles circuit which offers an impressive 310km of piste above the villages of Le Corbier, St Jean d'Arves, La Toussuire, Les Bottières, and St Colomban des Villards. The skiing here is suited to all standards and snowboarders have the choice of two terrain parks.

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

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