Spring time in Valloire:

The days are getting longer, the sun reheats the days, spring flowers are starting to blow and April holiday-makers can attend the awakening of the first marmots along the lifts exposed to the south.

Snow melting is starting and enables people to access the paths so far buried beneath the snow. The Galibier Pass road will soon open with the crowd of cyclist coming for estimate their endurance on its slopes. It is a foretaste of summer.


Summer time in Valloire:

The resort opens and holiday-makers are crowding. The mountain is ready to offer its beauty to the majority. Busy marmots are eating grass in the mountain pasture, always on the lookout and ready to whistle: predators are never far away! Does and deers are quietly grazing, chamois and ibexes are getting back to the highest summits. It is a period of abundance, free from care.
