The Village

Val Cenis is in the High Maurienne area of the French Savoie and is made up of three traditional mountain villages, Lanslevillard, Lanslebourg, and Termignon.

A place that focuses on skiing in the winter and farming in the summer – that is half ski resort and half National Park – Val Cenis is uncommercialised, unspoilt, and authentic; it is run by locals who care deeply about the area and making your stay as pleasant as possible.

MGS Ski is based in the upper village, Lanslevillard. The majority of our accommodation is based around the piste front, which means that – as you can see from the map below – amenities such as bakeries, shops, restaurants, the swimming pool, ice-rink, cinema, and bowling alley are all easily accessible from our accommodation options. For an idea of scale, it’s a 10 min walk from the piste front to Howard’s Burger Bar over on the left of the map).

With the village being at 1450m and the North-facing ski area going up to 2800m, Val Cenis has an excellent track record for snow, all the way from Christmas to Easter.


Even in bad weather, there is still great skiing available – the high tree line up to 2000m provides great definition during times of poor visibility or white out conditions during heavy snow storms, so the skiing never stops.

Each week of the season we post a weather report on our social media platforms for the coming week, to get you excited about your trip and to help you plan your travel to the resort.
