3 new sign-posted tracks

– Download the ski touring map

Three new sign-posted tracks in the forest perfect for walking or skinning. A choice of a circuit going back to resort (plus an extra more demanding option) and another to the bottom of the Marquise, between 250m and 350m of vertical with a possible return on skis (before they close!). These routes are at your own risk and may be taken with guides. If returning by piste make sure you have insurance. More information from the tourist office.

An evening with the family!

An igloo at world’s end
Live the life of an Eskimo in a real igloo during a raquetting trip and a gourmet escapade. The night trail is
accessible to one and all and allows you to discover the white expanses around the resort. Time stands still beneath the stars, and you will hear the occasional animal, and simply let your imagination run wild. Indoors the young ones can enjoy a hearty supper whilst grown-ups enjoy a traditional Savoy aperitif.

A fondue (almost) alone in the world

After a day of racing down the slopes, trade in your skis for raquettes and head off for a few hours in the forest. Along with a guide, get lost between the snow and the pine trees and revel in the marvel of the larger-than-life landscapes, immaculate snow, and untamed nature. And to pick up your energy, how about a Savoy fondue, hunter style, cut off from the rest of the world. Forget all your worries and make the most of this timeless moment of peace.
