This genuine Natural Powder Reserve at the heart of the Alps offers skiers unspoilt surroundings, mountain lifts that keep a low profile amid snowbound forests, pistes that wind their way through snow meadows, spruces and mountain chalets that have stood the test of time.

The ski area enjoys exceptionally good snowfall from mid-November to the end of April, with an average of 7m83 of powder every year.
