The uncrowded resort of Superdévoluy, in the southern French Alps, has been a popular addition to our winter programme. South of Grenoble and close to Gap, it shares a wonderful up and coming ski area with nearby Joue du Loup, offering100km of pistes to explore. The resort has benefited from recent development of lifts and accommodation and skiers and snowboarders looking for something new will be pleasantly surprised.
This is an excellent ski area for beginners. Your first steps on snow can be taken on the nursery slopes in the village centre but you will soon be progressing to the Sapins and Chevreuil green runs running down from the top of the Chaumettes chair.
There is a wide range of skiing for intermediates. Head up to the Jas chair and warm up on the rolling Perdrix blue run before heading to the blues and reds at the top of the Festoure.
There are several steep black runs served by some rather challenging drag lifts. Our favourites are off the Sommarel and Pierra drags, from which you will have a 1000m descent back to resort.
There is plenty of great terrain here as well as the excellent 'Mushroom Park' and 'Crossline', home of the Boarderline Cup at the end of January.
Please call for information on childcare in this resort.
Dévoluy offers a variety of après ski experiences, with a selection of bars and restaurants to keep visitors entertained. Try Le Bar Presse, Le Village Pub and La Fournaise and Le Chalet to dance the night away!
