Located in the centre of the village centre is the Ice Rink, popular with all ages alike. If you are looking for an activity to pass an hour early evening after a day on the slopes, this is perfect for you. It is open daily between 2 PM and 7 PM.
+33 (0)4 50 74 74 74 Snowshoeing offers a wonderful opportunity to really get out into the wilderness. Get away from the lifts and pistes to find some magnificent silent spots away from the crowds, and see some of the most stunning untouched scenery. Half days, whole days and evenings snowshoeing are available from ESF and The Show Shoe Company, starting at €24 for a half day. The evening walks come highly recommended, especially on staff night off as they can end at a local restaurant.
