La Joue du Loup

Like Superdévoluy, La Joue du Loup is a relatively new village located in the ski resort of Massif du Dévoluy. The buildings in La Joue du Loup are lower and smaller than in Superdévoluy and predominantly chalets, which certainly adds a certain charm to the village as a whole. All accommodations are located within walking distance of the lifts, which means you can often ski right down to your doorstep. You can also choose to ski all the way to Superdévoluy (in the evening there is no connection to Superdévoluy itself).

Skiing in La Joue du Loup

La Joue du Loup is part of the Massif du Dévoluy ski area which has around 100km of ski slopes. It is mainly made up for blue and red slopes, perfect for intermediate to advanced skiers. There are plenty of options for cross country skiers too, with around 35km of trails.

The Resort

There are activities for non skiers in La Joue du Loup too. Soak in some winter sun and enjoy a drink at one of the bars. There is also a spa in Superdévoluy and the options to rent a snow mobile. Sunweb has a great assortment of different ski packages in Superdévoluy. From all inclusive hotels - to cheap, affordable apartments. There are options to suit all group sizes and budgets.

Le Massif du Dévoluy

The ski area of Superdévoluy and La Joue du Loup, Le Massif du Dévoluy, is a perfect spot for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. It is one of the largest resorts in the Southern Alps. Here the snow from the north meets the sun from the south, the perfect combination!

The low pistes are slightly flatter and therefore ideally suited for the beginning skier and snowboarder. The high altitude pistes offer a remarkable range of options for the more advanced skiers and boarders. For the real fanatics there are good off piste trails and challenging black pistes like the black descent of La Mure. There is a special snow park in Superdévoluy with a half pipe, quarter pipe, several jumps and a boarder cross.

A large part of the pistes in Superdévoluy are located on the northern slopes. This guarantees good snow conditions. In addition the resort is equipped with plenty of snow cannons so the lower laying areas and the valley descent can be maintained in good skiing condition.

Cross country skiers can head for the 35 km (22 ml) of cross country tracks. Cross country skiers do not need to buy a lift pass prior to departure. Instead, they can buy a special cross county lift pass on location in Superdévoluy or La Joue du Loup.

Le Massif du Dévoluy

  • Often ski in ski out for apartment or chalet
  • Almost no waiting times at the lifts
  • Suitable for all levels
