St Sorlin d'Arves

A key resort in the Sybelles ski area in the Maurienne Valley which rapidly expanded in the earlier years of the 21st century and indeed its expansion to its present size in 2003-4 was thanks to a new lift linking St Sorlin d'Arves and the Pointe de l'Ouillon. Altogether the 10, largely lift-linked resorts participating offer 350km of runs, with ten resorts on the ticket, of which six are lift-linked in by far the largest sector (310km/195 miles).

It is one of six French (or part-French) ski areas offering more than 300km of lift-linked runs - a total only matched by just a few other regions in the world, underling French dominance in the 'giant ski area' market.
