Pra Loup, skiing excellence since 1961

Discover a wild and unspoilt region, a true link between the Ubaye and Verdon rivers. Here in the Southern Alps, the sunshine is as exceptional as the snow.

With a variety of landscapes, slopes and vertical drops, skiing in the Espace Lumière gives you a real sense of escape.

On the 89 slopes in the ski area, at altitudes of between 1500 and 2600 metres, you're sure to find what you're looking for, whatever your level.

The pistes are designed to take advantage of the natural terrain, making it a real treat to ski between the larches, in beautiful gently sloping valleys, or on the steep slopes below the Grande Séolane.

The originality of the Pra Loup ski area lies in the fact that the beginners' slopes are perched at an altitude of 2000 metres, in the middle of the ski area. Accessible by gondola, they are the perfect introduction to a higher mountain environment.

Everything is there, within spatula range, for families, beginners and experienced skiers alike.


Skiing in the heart of breathtakingly beautiful scenery

The Pra Loup - L'Espace Lumière ski area is extremely varied. Glide between the larches, down steep slopes or through gentler valleys: the pistes follow the natural relief. There are no big boulevards here, just pistes for all abilities, alternating between legendary spots and grandiose views. Culminating at an altitude of 2600 metres, the ski area offers great skiing, whatever your style of skiing!

Bathed in sunshine and benefiting from exceptional snow cover, this extraordinary area offers you a world of skiing and incomparable panoramic views, all at the gateway to the Mercantour National Park.

The originality of the ski area lies in the beginners' slopes perched at an altitude of over 2000 metres. Accessible by gondola, these are the perfect place to start out in a "high mountain" atmosphere.

Powder lovers be warned: some of the slopes are not groomed the day after a snowfall... You're in for an incomparable skiing experience.

Make your mark at Pra Loup and experience pure skiing pleasure! Experienced skiers, beginners, families... here is skiing for all in a white setting.
