A virgin space to discover

The name of Les Saisies still famous for its Olympic past. Its 120 km of cross country tracks through forest and virgin spaces make you travel to a magical universe filled with calm.
Here, in the middle of the Regional Nature Reserve, in the early hours of the morning, it is not uncommon to see grouse or whitecaps... From La Palette you will enjoy magnificient landscapes with breathtaking views of Mont-Blanc, the Beaufortain massif and the Aravis range.

Thanks to its high altitude, Les Saisies cross country area is one of the best in the Alps for its snow level.
We ski every year from early December (and often earlier) until the end of April.

Champion word: Raphaël Poirée

“Cross-country skiing in Les Saisies is better than Norway! In Les Saisies, there is more snow, more sun, more light and it’s less cold than in Scandinavia. And the area is situated in altitude so we have a breathtaking view of the mountain ranges and Mont Blanc.
Here, everybody can find happiness. And skiing in the forest is very nice. It’s the ideal for families”
