Les Saisies has a steady snow record and was made famous during the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville. The biathlon and cross country skiing events were held in Les Saisies. The friendly population of the pretty village of Les Saisies awaits you with a warm welcome.

The many wooden houses and traditional chalets are built in perfect harmony with the wider surrounding. With its breathtaking views of Mont Blanc, fantastic nature, ski lifts that depart from the centre of the village and pistes that end here, Les Saisies is guaranteed to appeal to you.

There is a snow park for snowboarders as well as an excellent cross country skiing area with 100 kilometers of cross country skiing tracks set out in a varied and forested area. If you want to try something different you could hire a snow scooter or try sleighing on one of the sleigh pistes.

In the evening you can enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants and continue for a drink in one of the bars Les Saisies. If you feel like carrying on into the night you can head to the nightclub. There will be enough here to keep you entertained off the pistes!
