Winter Activities

In majestic mountain setting, nestled beneath several of the largest glaciers in the French Alps, the family-friendly resort-village of Pralognan-la-Vanoise offers winter sports enthusiasts unlimited possibilities (alpine skiing, alpine ski touring, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing). The breathtaking panorama and copious amounts of snow make it the ideal destination for those in search of both athletic and pensive pursuits.

Our truly amazing ski area has always appealed to experts in search of thrilling descents, as well as families won over by the wild animals and beautiful backcountry setting, all in a genuine winter white paradise where preserving Mother Nature takes precedence over all else.

In addition, Pralognan has the sixth largest Nordic ski area in the Savoie. More than 27 km of designated trails wind across wide-open plateaus and through peaceful alpine forests for cross-country and skate skiers of all levels to enjoy.

Pralognan-la-Vanoise offers one of the best places in France for alpine ski touring. Enjoy breathtaking views through the area’s vast backcountry ski terrain.

At the gateway to Vanoise national Park, pedestrians can take full advantage of the marked foot and snowshoe trails alongside that also offer amazing views.

The village is also an ideal place for those who would like to enjoy alternative ways to glide on snow. Delight in the true feeling of freedom as a horse or sled dogs guide you at a steady clip through the crisp mountain air, have fun sledding, take to the air in a paraglider, or build your very own igloo as a family!
