Serre Che' for the respondents.
It is one of the largest ski area in europe.
We can chain the off-piste variety, ending every time in the larch forest, with always the slope and elevation. half an hour walking, skis on the bag and we are at the top of la Cucumelle. More beautiful tracks to let in virgin snow during the 1300 m downhill to the valley
Freerando style, from the top of the lifts we can easily reach the high mountain area. Direction the dome de Monetier, 1000 m ascent for more than 2000 m descent. to the choice, large cool slopes, corridors, or the huge Riou Comb down to Pre de Mme Carle.
Freerando version is the off-piste from barely further Virgin snow, in a little bit of ski touring. the ultimate!
- 3 lifts
- 1 cheap pass
- nobody in the resort
- almost 1000 m vertical drop of fast rotations
= 1 dream spot!
opportunity to stay 1 day / 1 station, a mix with vars, risoul, abriès, st veran, puy saint vincent, pelvoux, La Grave...
An area of impressive off-piste, yet little known that worth a visit.
A lot of accessible runs by gravity: the combales, the Telegraph, the combe of the Italians, the monkey, the devalle risoul, chabriere orbit, etc.
Other routes require walking a bit, but the result is equal to the efforts. Snow Virgin, exceptional, long descent: the eyssina, the peak without name,...
A nice resort to also learn the practice of off-piste skiing and coming with your family.
An other good plan of the hautes-alpes!
North, wild, corridors of the rouya and la blanche are available quickly. They allow vertiginous descents, after only between 500 and 700 m climb in ski touring beyond the ski lifts from the small station in pelvoux.
Possibility for the most motivated to give the skins at the end of the corridors to then access the mythical "pelas-verney" nearby hallway... an atmosphere in a setting "high mountain".
A golden nugget of hautes-alpes!
North, wild, corridors of la rouya and la blanche are available quickly. They allow vertiginous descents after only 500 to 700 m climb in ski touring beyond the ski lifts from the small station in pelvoux. A short reminder to get a foothold in the slope, at 50 ° still!
Possibility for the most motivated to give the skins at the end of the corridors to then access the mythical "pelas-vernet" nearby hallway...
An atmosphere in a setting "high mountain".
Small family resort of the queyras, molines / st veran also allows access to beautiful hikes at the start of the ski lifts, thanks to a "hiker" skipass. Little climb and large runs... (+ 700 m /-1700 m) a nice way to ski the big day powder, or to taste in ski mountaineering.
Choice, since the last lift, North corridor or South slopes of chateau renard, then we're back skins for a quick climb to the peak trversier. Still fine runs by more or less straight lines.
"freerando" as you'll like it!
a jewel of skiing off piste in the hautes-alpes, heavy snowfall guaranteed at the famous "retour d'Est". This small station also allows with a hiker package to win 1000 m in altitude, before switching ski touring. the choice of 200 m, 500 m, 700 m of more or less technical climb to endless raids. for example: the amunt mayt, pelvas, the epiole,... a good way to learn ski touring or for those who prefer the descent to the long climbs.
This is what is called the "freerando" (ski freeride-ski touring)
To discover absolutely!
Font Sancte Peak is the highest summit of queyras range to almost 3,400 m altitude.
Its northern side is accessible to day thanks for the small ski resort of ceillac. This vast circus Unveils, who take the trouble to prosecute sealskins beyond the ski lifts, a good number of corridors very uncrowded and long in good conditions. It is possible according to the shape and the chosen routes to chain several corridors.
attention: when you get a taste, we go back several times!
