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.
