Puy Saint-Vincent lies amidst the national park Les Écrins and offers 75 km (47 mi) of ski trails for all lovers of snow sports. Due to its location in the French Maritime Alps the surrounding peaks are in a wind protected area and offer excellent snow conditions.
All visitors can chose from a range of 31 runways that are suitable for all levels of experience in a varied landscape setting. Being here one will experience the delight of having an imposing panorama view on the surrounding mountains. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, there is the possibility to use the 750 m (820 yd) long Ecureuil ski-run at night, too.
For children there are numerous possibilities of daily care provided and some slopes they can practice their skiing skills on. Puy Saint-Vincent has also been awarded a family-friendly skiing area.
All snowboarders can additionally have some fun in the snow park, where they can practice their skills on halfpipes, slides and jumps.

Ice Climbing - Pays des Écrins - Hautes-Alpes

Specialised activity instructors greet you throughout the season and inform, advise and assist you. 

Ski touring is one of the Pays des Écrins’ showcase disciplines. The area offers intense elevations and slopes for expert skiers. There are also technically accessible routes making it easy to discover this form of skiing.

Off the beaten tracks, using skis fitted with skins, a different, more natural and authentic mountain environment is revealed.

It is more athletic and intense than snowshoeing and is therefore a delight for those who like to push their limits in a natural environment, even in spring, guaranteeing an outing that combines tranquillity, sport and nature awareness.

Worth trying
The purposely designed Pré-Rouge Ski Tour route, up to an altitude of 2000 m with an elevation of 1000 m. Descent via the alpine ski slopes.

Ice climbing
The Pays des Écrins is one of Europe’s most spectacular ice-climbing destinations. There are more than 300 ice falls across the sector (Les Claux, in Pelvoux, L’Argentière-la-Bessée, Freissinières...). With the onset of winter, the deepest valleys turn into ‘ice galleries’. A simple trip to the Fournel or Freissinières valley is enough to take in the magnificent falls that can be up to 600 m high. Derived from this activity, ruisseling is more accessible and uses simple equipment, such as crampons and a harness, in order to explore unique settings where nature is set in ice.
