Thinking of skiing in Termignon? This gem of a resort sits on the edge of the stunning Vanoise National Park, providing a great base from which to explore the area by skis, snowshoes or on foot.

Why Termignon Ski Resort?

  • An authentic village in a superb unspoilt setting
  • There’s a delightful atmosphere and it’s very child friendly
  • It’s a 'good-value-for-money' resort
  • Holders of a 6+day lift pass for Val Cenis are allowed 1 day in La Norma, Valfrejus and Aussois until early April. You can also pay a small upgrade fee locally and ski in Val Thorens
  • Easy access to other resorts like Orelle, the back door into the 3 Valleys for the likes of Val Thorens – is a 30-minute drive away (a new fast, super modern cable car has been built for 21/22 season in Orelle making access even easier up to Orelle and Val Thorens)

Termignon Resort Information

A little known gem for lovers of traditional French villages in stunning surroundings, Termignon-la-Vanoise is a small resort that oozes ambience at the gateway of the Vanoise National Park.

Termignon is primarily a ski resort and one of the largest French communes. It represents nearly a third of the central area of National Park, which has 16 glaciers and 63 peaks over 3,000 metres, and is the home to wolves, lynx and various rare bird species. You can go there in search of magnificent scenery on snowshoes, skis, or just hiking in.

Termignon’s farming roots remain strong with local families still residing in the village as they have for generations. This means that superb local yogurts, jams, honey and charcuterie can be found in the shops and restaurants. The ‘Bleu de Termignon’ cheese is one to try in the ‘Chez Anouchka’ fromagerie.

Termignon village is fairly small but there are still a few genuine craft shops, a wine shop, boulangeries, mini-supermarket, two cheese shops and a honey merchant. There are also eight restaurants to suit all tastes, and two bars. There are a handful of gourmet food shops and eight restaurants but in addition a surprising list of activities to enjoy in the area including cross-country skiing, ice climbing, paragliding and dog sledding.

Snow shoeing is very popular in the area with four marked routes and the opportunity to walk out with a guide or on your own with a map provided by the tourist office. If you become especially fascinated with the history of the area you may like to take the free bus to nearby Sollières-Sardières to visit the archaeology museum.

Peak Retreats features self-catered apartments in Termignon. Enjoying a central location and views over the national park, 'Les Balcons de la Vanoise' provides the ideal base for a Termignon ski holiday.


Although Termignon's local ski slopes are best suited to beginners wishing to learn in a relaxed and friendly environment (and with a more affordable lift ticket than at many bigger resorts) the link to Val Cenis means there are slopes that will satisfy all but the most demanding skiers.

With the link to Val Cenis, the two resorts combined offer pistes for all levels amongst the pine forests. Another four local ski areas (Sollières-Sardières, Aussois, Bessans and Bonneval) are linked by a free ski bus.

Although the ski area is not one of the highest, the maximum lift-served point of 2,700m at Termignon and 2,800m at Val Cenis is quite healthy. More importantly, the local microclimate has an excellent reputation for delivering snow. There is also extensive snowmaking on the lower slopes.

The ‘L’Arole’ mountain restaurant is a must. It’s one of the very few mountain restaurants that rotates through 360 degrees during the course of your meal, allowing splendid panoramic views in every direction!
