Valloire is a village resort located on the road from the famous Col du Galibier. The village is not built from scratch as some stations nearby. It is a thoroughfare for centuries. Tourism is now the main business. It now sees many cyclists go in summer to attack the mythical Col du Tour de France. And in winter, skiers hurtle down the slopes there in the footsteps of world champion slalom JB Grange.
