The Ski Resort
Around the two mountains Mont Pelat and Mont Margériaz in the Bauges massif extends the winter sports area Aillons-Margériaz, which is particularly popular with families. In the charming ski area, which covers 39 km of pistes, beginners, advanced skiers and real experts can enjoy winter from its most beautiful side. Thanks to its favourable geographical location, a lot of snow falls here. The two unconnected areas Aillons-Margériaz 1000 and Aillons-Margériaz 1400 are located on the eastern and western borders of the traditional mountain village of Aillon-de-Jeune. The ski bus ensures convenient transport to the lift stations.
In the Aillons-Margériaz 1000 area on Mont Pelat, winter sports enthusiasts can explore 15 kilometres of pistes of all levels of difficulty. Beginners feel particularly at home on the green and blue pistes, while the two challenging black-marked runs appeal to experts. The ski gnomes are in good hands in the children's park, which is situated on a gentle slope. Here they can make their first attempts on the boards and be brought comfortably to the top again with the magic carpet. The toboggan run provides variety. Night skiing is also possible in Aillons - the two slopes "Chevreuil" and "Croës" are illuminated several times a week.
The slightly larger Aillons-Margériaz 1400 area is ideal for experienced skiers and those who want to become one. Winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy their turns on 24 kilometres of pistes. Mont Margériaz also has a spacious beginners' area with a magic carpet. Freestylers can prove their talent here in the snow park, which is equipped with various obstacles, or on the boardercross. The snowpark can be reached via the "L'Alpage" chairlift.
