LES SAISIES SKI AREA

Les Saisies benefits from above average snow conditions – the French weather centre confirms that since 1982 the average accumulated snowfall is superior to all surrounding mountain ranges.

 

If your kids are too small to take the chairlift this need stop them having a go at skiing. 3 ski ropes are available for kids. Les Trolles is located in the cross country ski park (also accessible to adults), Les Lutins is near the snow garden and Les Gobelins is at Bisanne 1500m. They are safe and easy to use and are FREE!

 

Within the Espace Diamant ski domain you have access to ski the other areas including Notre-Dame de Bellecombe which is fully lift linked to Les Saisies.

 

Les Saisies is the top Nordic ski resort in France. The Olympic area has 80km of marked pistes and extends over a large sunny plateau between 1570 and 1760 metres high, which guarantees a long season of snow cover.

 

LES SAISIES BEGINNERS

Les Saisies is an ideal resort for beginners who will find plenty of gentle nursery slopes and long wide blues to progress on.

 

LES SAISIES INTERMEDIATES

Intermediates will enjoy well-kept pistes on which to gain confidence, and easy links into Crest-Voland and the runs from the top of Mont-Lachet.

 

LES SAISIES EXPERTS

Advanced skiers will discover the black off the top of Légette with its narrow couloirs, and there are off-piste runs through the trees. Hauteluce’s ski area has many challenging runs and is a favourite among local freeriders.

 

LES SAISIES RESORT RUNS

There are multiple access points so the resort runs are of all levels from green-black.
