Back Country Skiing
Our lodge is ski in, ski out and you can just pull on your boots and head out for a snow day on beginner pristine backcountry trails such as the Crête de Baude or the Croix Carail (900m vertical height difference). For the adventuresome, there are more intense day trips to the tour de la Gardiole (1 100 m vertical height difference), the Grande Manche, the tour du Queyrellin or the Pic du Lac Blanc (1400 m. vertical height difference).
You can also head out into the Upper part of the Clarée Valley and spend a night or two in the mountain huts we partner with to access even more trails. Or why not try a day of Nordic backcountry skiing towards Buffère?
