Head for the highest summits in Auvergne this winter! The Massif du Sancy and nearby resorts are ready to welcome you for a unique skiing experience on volcanic slopes.
The Massif du Sancy, in the Puy de Dôme department, takes its name from the highest volcano in France: Le Puy du Sancy, at an altitude of 1,886 metres. This spectacular setting is ideal for winter sports as soon as the first snow begins to fall. The trump card at the Sancy ski resorts is their diversity: downhill and cross-country skiing are on offer of course, but also dog sledding, luge and snowshoeing.
This resort at the foot of Le Puy de Sancy is named after the traditional mountain village over which it looks. The Mont-Dore ski area is linked to that of Super Besse and offers downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Children are in for a particular treat, with a dedicated play area just for them! Mont-Dore is accredited as a Famille Plus Montagne resort and plays host to numerous competitions and festive events all season long.
Located above the village of Besse-et-St-Anastaise, this resort has much to offer in terms of new winter sports, as well as downhill and cross-country skiing. Families are particularly welcome at this Famille Plus Montagne-accredited resort. There's plenty of night life here, too, with a disco, cinema and pool tables available.
This small family resort is located at an altitude of 1,400 metres and is mostly dedicated to Nordic activities: snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, as well as dog sledding. This all-natural environment is ideal for adults and children alike.
The Sancy Massif is a paradise for Nordic sports enthusiasts! Suitable areas include the Espace Nordique du Sancy, Guéry, Murat-Le Quaire, Parrot, Pessade, Beaune Le Froid and the Egliseneuve sector.
So what are you waiting for? Whatever your preferences, you'll find just what you're after in this Sancy winter wonderland!
