Cross‑country skiing and snowshoeing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winter atmosphere guaranteed between larch forests and high plateaus

At the gates of the Mercantour National Park and very close to the Val d’Allos resorts, the Haut Verdon and its Nordic areas offer you a still untouched nature, bathed by a Mediterranean sun. These mountains of light lend themselves admirably to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. It is a treat to glide along the varied, well-marked and very well-maintained trails. Beginners and experienced skiers will find ideal conditions here.
