The village of Le Chazelet is perfectly situated for winter activities - south facing for maximum sunshine and at elevation of 1800m for guaranteed snow. Nestled against the Plateau Emparis and opposite the mighty peaks of La Meije (3983m) and Le Rateau (3809m), Le Chazelet provides easy access for many winter sports.
A chair-lift and 4 surface lifts give access to quiet ski runs - right on the doorstep!
Accessible peaks such as La Grande Buffe, Signal de la Grave and Le Gros Tet are enjoyed both on touring ski and snowshoe.
In addition there are nordic (cross country) ski trails near by and numerous ice falls of all grades for climbing.
Come for the activity of your choice or try them all!
SKIING: For the downhill skier there are great runs to be enjoyed both in Le Chazelet and on the off-piste mecca of La Grave. Also within easy reach are the well known resorts of Serre Chevalier, Les Deux Alpes and Alpe D Huez. We can also arrange instruction with UK ski school Eurekaski at Monetier-les-Bains (part of Serre Chevalier ski area and only 30 mins drive away).
SNOWSHOE-ING: Numerous local peaks and trails in and around Le Chazelet and the Upper Romanche valley. Other destinations include the Nevache Valley, Col du Lauteret/Galibier and the Cerces and Queyras regional parks.
