With Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne on your doorstep, you have access to 425km of skiable area, 264 slopes (2 Green, 132 Blue, 66 Red, 29 Black), with up to 3250m of altitude. Open from mid-December until late March due to the higher altitude of the resort, you can ski for longer into the year.
Also not so far from Bourg Saint Maurice is Tignes, an exceptional resort for families, beginners and expert skiers alike, which offers summer glacier skiing – so you can get your Alpine skiing fix throughout much of the year.
In the Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France, the Bourg Saint Maurice is uniquely well-serviced by transport, with a Eurostar station arriving here directly from King’s Cross. It takes between 9 and 10 hours approximately to get to Bourg Saint Maurice from King’s Cross, but with the convenient option of going by night train, it can still be a better and more convenient option than getting to the Alps by plane or by car.
Not only is Bourg Saint Maurice ideally-located and surrounded by an abundance of exceptional French ski resorts, it is also an incredibly charming town in its own right. On the periphery of the Vanoise National Park, Bourg Saint Maurice is engulfed with an area of outstanding natural beauty and has all the amenities you would expect from such a well-serviced Alpine town.
