Les Sept Laux Resort Information

Les Sept Laux is a purpose-built ski resort from the 1970s made up of 3 villages – Prapoutel at 1350m, Le Pleynet at 1450m and Pipay at 1550m. Our residence is located in the larger Prapoutel. All villages are lift-linked.

Les 7 Laux is in the heart of the Massif of Belledonne and is only half an hour away from Grenoble Airport.


All 3 villages of Les 7 Laux are lift-linked for easy domain access. Perched on a plateau in the Belledonne mountains, it offers treelined skiing below 2000m. The rest of the mountain is unsheltered by trees and reaches a top height of 2400m. The resort invested to have 90% of their ski lifts updated in the last 10 years.

There is a pretty decent cross-country area and lots of off-piste to be found.



In Prapoutel there are two, small beginners zones. 


There are mainly red and black runs so this is a good intermediate or experts playground. The snow park is one of the best rated in France. There is also a fair amount of off-piste.


Skiing back to the resort there is every colour of runs to pick from!
