Off the Mountain


Saint Sorlin is a traditional mountain village resort in the Maurienne Valley and provides an affordable alternative for those looking for a more authentic ski experience in France. The village has managed to retain its traditional charm and french feel yet offers all the amenities of a modern ski resort and at a fraction of the price of better-known resorts. The resort is part of Les Sybelles ski area which remains relatively unknown despite being one of the largest in France with 310km of pistes (bigger than the Espace Killy!).
