New in 2011-2012
New Les Crêtes ski lift
With this new 4-seater fixed grip chairlift you can access one of the most beautiful high-altitude ski areas in the Southern Alps! This new chairlift has opened up a new breath-taking ski area.
This new chairlift has lead to the creation of two new blue slopes which means that beginners can also discover the higher ground now. And the red Blanchon run is now a black run.
The construction of a second water reservoir with a capacity of 100 000 m3 provides 4 times more water for artificial snow - one of the biggest capacities in the Alps! The artificial snow production network has also been extended to other slopes.
An ideal destination for a weekend or ski break
Les Orres and the Serre-Ponçon region have lots of hidden treasures!
In Les Orres, there is the 16th century Sainte Marie Madeleine church in the village, with a Lombard bell tower, and a traditional crafts museum. In the village of Mélézet you will find the Notre Dame de la Présentation church which was built in the 19th century on the site of an old chapel dating from 1546. On its façade there is a sun dial from the famous Italian craftsman, Zarbula, and dating from 1853.
Guided visits of the Les Orres village, church, museum and resort are organised during the school holidays at 2.30 pm.
