The site presents no particular difficulties. The routes are mainly flat, sometimes with gentle slopes.

The itineraries are therefore accessible to all types of skiers: beginners, amateurs or training.

Grooming generally takes place on Tuesday and Friday evenings, depending on weather conditions (variable from year to year).

The site operates on a voluntary entry system. Passes are sold at the Nordic hut, at the day rate of 7 euros for adults and 5 euros for under-16s.
