Winter sports; In the mountains; Among nature
For a winter holiday with the family, Puy Saint Vincent - situated in the heart of the Pays des Ecrins National Park - could be the best choice. Here you will find 75 km of ski slopes (6 green + 14 blue + 12 red + 2 black), 130 km of cross-country skiing and hiking trails, 20 km of foot paths, 12 ski lifts (6 chair lifts and 6 ski tows) at an altitude of 1350 meters and a snow park which is floodlit at night and contains a 250m pipe + 1 boarder cross. You can rent snowshoes, snowmobiles and a variety of other winter sports equipment. There also is a skating rink near by. There are a lot of activities and programs available for children of all ages as well as for families.
In winter the national park is a land of contrasts, with frozen waterfalls on the north-facing Fournel slopes and sunny south-facing slopes at Freissinières plus the vast white Barre des Ecrins in the distance. In this untouched landscape, where no man has left his mark, silence can be felt even more keenly in winter than in the other seasons. It is important to preserve this rare quality and these unspoilt areas.
The richness of winter sports possibilities in the middle of this wonderful region gives you the opportunity for a truly unforgettable holiday!
