A varied ski area

It's impossible not to fall under the spell of Le Sauze, one of France's oldest ski resorts, which has been welcoming skiers since 1934.

At Le Sauze, skiing is more than just perfect! The 65km ski area, spread between 1400 and 2400 m, offers 34 runs with different profiles to delight beginners and champions alike.

For freeride enthusiasts, there are plenty of avalanche-free couloirs accessible in less than 30 minutes from the ski area. Rare moments await you on these off-piste outings where you glide over fine, light powder.

The vast expanses of snow also appeal to ski tourers. And at Le Sauze, you don't need to be an expert to try your hand at seal skins. The resort offers marked, safe itineraries accessible to all.
