The Ski Resort
The ski area near Gresse en Vercors is divided into two areas, the Secteur Alleyrons and the Secteur Pierre Blanche. The only chairlift in Gresse en Vercors can be found in the Secteur Pierre Blanche.
On both sides there are easy slopes in the valley area, but especially at Pierre Blanche beginners will find a large selection of green marked slopes. If you are looking for more challenging downhill runs, you will find something further up. You can reach the red and black pistes of the 20 km large ski area either with the Alleyrons T-bar lift or with the Pierre Blanche and Pre Levé.
The slalom run at the Blavet lift and the snow park at the La Gélinotte slope provide a change of pace away from the normal pistes. There is also a beginner's area with a magic carpet and a toboggan run and tubing run for kids.
