Recommandations

A few rules: 

→ Cross-country ski trails are groomed, marked and safe. Access is subject to a charge and reserved for Nordic skiers. 

→ You use these trails under your own responsibility: find out about weather conditions and trail closures, and don't overestimate your possibilities.

→ Respect the signs: trail directions, dangers, prohibitions, avalanche closures, etc.

→ Dogs are forbidden on cross-country ski trails. 

→ Night-time activities and biathlon shooting in the Nordic area must be supervised by a professional.

→ Skiing outside opening hours is dangerous and prohibited (presence of grooming equipment).

→ Take your garbage with you 

Tours are available in skating or classic technique.


Winter conditions are very pleasant all day long. However, from March onwards, it's best to practice in the morning, as some of the trails are quickly exposed to the sun. 


Don't hesitate to ask for a piste map at the Chalet Nordique in Vallouise or at the Pelvoux lift information point! 


Please note: This information is for guidance only. It is your responsibility to check the weather report and conditions before you set off.
