Bonneval is a tiny old village more or less at the head of the valley. It has an equally tiny lift system, but it serves some great off-piste terrain - a great day trip from Val Cenis.

 

The old village of Bonneval is a famously cute historic hamlet, well-worth a wander. On the fringes, the Glacier des Evettes is a friendly, well run 2-star hotel. There are nursery slopes beside the old village, and not far away is an area of tasteful modern development at Tralenta, where a drag serves a little nursery slope and a slow chair goes up to further beginner slopes above the treeline (205om), with a tiny restaurant. From there, half a dozen drags and slow chairs reaching 3000m serve good but very limited intermediate pistes - but more importantly also wide and varied off-piste terrain on two flanks of the Pointe d'Andange, including runs of 1150m vertical to the valley bottom.
