Valmeinier Mountain Restaurants

Valmeinier’s three mountain restaurants provide perfectly adequate coverage if you stick to the local slopes, and are supplemented by a wider choice over towards Valloire, plus you have the option of heading to the base of the lifts and dining in resort, or back in your apartment for lunch if you wish.

The choices include L’Arméra (+33(0)4 79 59 29 41; ) located at 1750m on the slopes between the two main resort bases in the 1500 sector, and up above 1800 Le Cros Crey (+33 (0)6 08 27 53 11) or Le Panoramic (+33 (0)6 79 87 66 17), the latter, unsurprisingly, providing great views. All three provide cafeteria style self-service and a good selection of snack food and home-cooked mountain favourites for lunch.
