The ski resorts

Let’s Go Skiing!

Sun, snow and happiness…

The Champsaur ski resorts and villages welcome you and your family for an original and authentic holiday.

Each ski resort has its character…

In Laye, a mini ski village where everything is just a stone’s throw away, enjoy the closeness and conviviality… In Saint Léger Les Mélèzes, slalom through the magical fairytale forest… In sunny Chaillol, bask in the sunshine on a beautiful winter’s day after skiing down the south facing slopes… In discreet Serre Eyraud, far away from the tourist hot spots, blend in, ingcognito with the locals… In Ancelle, be tempted by the culinary specialities of the region to compliment your day’s skiing… In the big ski resort of Orcieres Merlette enjoy high altitude skiing up to 2725m!  And in each resort or ski village reconnect with the essential : the simple and authentic pleasure of skiing.

Family friendly

Family Friendly

All the six ski resorts and ski villages have one thing in common… they are all on a human scale. With no queues, no traffic jams, and no crowds, you can make the most of the snow. With the bonus 300 days of sunshine per year and very reasonable prices, skiing in the Champsaur is great value for money! Perched at an altitude of 1850m, Orcieres-Merlette joins the league of the big alpine ski resorts offering a full range of activities for all ages. The picturesque ski villages of Ancelle, Chaillol, Laye, Saint Léger Les Mélèzes, and Serre Eyraud offer more intimate skiing in authentic village communities. Still not sure ? Try them all – they are neighbours ! You can even ski at your leisure between Chaillol, Laye and Saint Léger Les Mélèzes using the « Champsaur 3 gliss » ski pass, which covers all three ski villages.

Ready to ski

1,2,3 … Go !

The ski resorts and ski villages of the Champsaur have something for everyone, whether you are interested in a full on sporty holiday, or a more relaxing trip. Beginner skiers will appreciate the gentle slopes of Ancelle, Chaillol, Laye and Saint Léger Les Mélèzes. Powder hunters will love (with caution of course) the off-piste routes in Laye, Serre Eyraud and Saint Léger Les Mélèzes. Children will adore the fun park in Laye (snowpark, sledging and boardercross…) For enthusiasts of other winter sports (cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ski joering…), the exceptional location of the Champsaur resorts and villages, at the gateway to the Ecrins National Park, opens the door to some amazing experiences. In short, whichever village or resort you choose, being in the Champsaur is pure joy !

The terroir

Territory of Culture

In the Champsaur, the inhabitants share a philosophy of life. Here, we take the time to admire the landscapes, to savour local specialities and enjoy a mountain territory where these values have always dominated. With small villages scattered throughout the valley, the Champsaur appeals to lovers of heritage-friendly tourism and traditions.
