The ski resort of Val Cenis - Lanslevillard - Lanslebourg is situated in the upper Maurienne valley in the Savoie department of the Northern Alps. The lift served area extends from 1400 metres to 2800 metres although the highest point of the communities is the Pointe de Ronce (3612 meters). There is 1400 meters of vertical over a wide variety of runs. The generally north to north-west facing slopes keep their snow well. There is significant snowmaking on the runs between 1400 to 1850 meters. There is tree lined skiing between 1400 and 2000 meters. The Vieux Moulins Gondola lift from Lanslevillard gives comfortable access to 2080meters. In winter the Col du Mont Cenis is closed and the N6 main road is transformed into a ski run over 8 km. There are 70 km of lift served runs but a proposed link to Termignon, due to open in 2007/8 will bring this total to well over 100km. There is limited cross-country skiing and some marked snowshoes trails. The resort has a snowpark.

The best pistes are the Pont Noir black in Lanslevillard, the tree lined Chamois blue and the Michele Jacot black which frequently has moguls.
