The ski areas enable both beginners and experienced skiers to have a fantastic day. The beginners’ area at the bottom of the area means families can safely discover the joys of skiing in the sunshine. The higher slopes offer a view of the valley and the Puy Saint Vincent ski resort. Access to the slopes is also possible from Puy Aillaud. This is a pretty little hamlet in La Vallouise, perched high on a sunny plateau overlooking the valley.
Pelvoux provides the main access to the resort via Les Essarts at an altitude of 1,230 m and has all the shops you will need during your stay (ski schools, tourist office, shops, restaurants, etc.), a large car park, a zone for beginners and access to the high-altitude section.
The Pelvoux-Vallouise resort is staggered between 1,230 m and 2,240 in altitude (an elevation of 1,010 m). It has 25 km of marked slopes and 12 hectares of slopes fitted with snow cannons. There are 12 slopes including 2 black, 4 red, 4 blue and 2 green, a latest generation 4-seater chairlift, 5 ski lifts, 1 rope lift, 1 baby ski lift, a flood lit slope for night skiing, a sledging run, 20 hectares with artificial snow to ensure the return to the resort, an initiation snowpark and a cross-country skiing-biathlon stadium.
The two mountain restaurants mean you can get something to eat without going back down the valley. You can also stop at Puy Aillaud, where there are very good, traditional inns.
