Exposition

Vallorcine is situated between the Col des Montets and the Col de Forclaz. With immense snowfall recordings, Vallorcine is regularly shut off from the outside world because of avalanche danger. Nonetheless, the ski lifts will still run on many of those occasions. In mid-winter, combined with a weststau this place is a definite winner. Often at its best in late January / early February. Because of its location between two mountain passes, it traps in the cold and enables snowfall even when it is (still) raining a few kilometers away. The snowflakes that fall are huge and can keep on falling for days. Not a destination for springtime, then you should head out into the higher mountain ranges.

With bad weather

Vallorcine is the best bad weather alternative of the Mont Blanc mountain massif. Between Les Esserts and the gondola is a mighty and steep forest. There must be a decent base layer in order to ski some lines here. Please note that prolonged snowfall from the west causes access roads from Valais and from Chamonix to close because of acute avalanche danger.

    Gr8 day in le Tour again today. Heavy snow lower part, but good pow in upper levels. Visibility was poor, but hey who cares. Still snowing and pretty intense, think we have had close to 50 cm last 30 hours. Legs resting now for another epic day (with some sun) tomorrow. Wind on top intense, lower hardly any.
