Introduction

The Ubaye Valley is a true ''Winter Wonderland'' - wide expanses of untouched white snow, surrounded by towering peaks under bright blue skies.  

The climate in this part of the southern Alps tends towards sunny days and cold, clear nights, meaning that the snow lasts a long time and the daytime sunshine gives the opportunity to get outside and enjoy it.  

Whilst renowned for its ski resorts, the Ubaye Valley offers far more than just skiing, there are also miles of waymarked snowshoeing trails and cross-country skiing routes, dog-sleigh rides, ice skating and sledging.

At Christmas, the villages of the Valley twinkle with thousands of fairy-lights and host Christmas markets where you can buy local crafts and produce.
