Location and surroundings

St. Sorlin d'Arves

Are you looking for a resort with more charm than many of the large modern ski areas? We recommend Sorlin d’Arves. This resort is located at the foot of the Col de la Croix de Fer, and is an authentic French mountain village with a great traditional atmosphere. In recent years it has been updated with new lifts, hotels and bars, whilst still maintaining its charm. It has become increasingly more popular with skiing enthusiasts.

Skiing in St.Sorlin d’Arves

St. Sorlin d’Arves is part of the large Les Sybelles ski area. This also includes the resorts La Toussuire, Le Corbier and St.Jean d’Arves. The area has over 310km of ski slopes, comprised mostly of red and blue runs. This means that it is well suited for intermediate skier/snowboarders. For cross country skiers there is also around 42km of different trails.

The resort

There are plenty of options here for non skiers too. The two bars Le Barock and Saint S’O are well known for their great après ski atmosphere. There is also a spa and the opportunity to go on snow shoe walks.

Location and surroundings

Les Sybelles

The vast resort of Les Sybelles is gaining in popularity with skiers and snowboarders. The excellent variety of options provided in this resort with 310 km (193 ml) of pistes justify its popularity.
 
 
The ski area consists of the villages of Le Corbier, St. Jean d'Arves, Les Bottières, La Toussuire, St. Sorlin d'Arves and St. Colomban des Villards. This large and diverse area has plenty of pistes for novices as well as advanced skiers and snowboarders. For the very advanced skiers and snowboarders there are plenty of black piste descents and the real fanatics can conquer the off piste trails! However we strongly advise you to do this in the company of an experienced guide.

The most challenging descents can be found in the resort of St. Sorlin d'Arves. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers can head for the snow parks in le Corbier and La Toussuire. The lift pass for the entire area is included in the price of the holiday.

 

Attention: the 6-day skipass Les Sybelles is included. If you book before 1st of October 2013, you will get the 7th day for free.

  • Excellent location in Alps
