Doing More on holiday at Puy St Vincent
Whilst skiing and snowboarding would be the main reasons to visit, other mountain activities exist, including 40km of cross-country trails meandering through the forests between 1400m-2000m. Also 20km of hiking trails are available throughout the winter months too.
Puy St Vincent is part of the Grand Galaxie ski area which includes neighbouring Pelvoux- Vallouise, Serre Chevalier, Montgenevre, Les Deux Alpes, and Alpe d'huez. Whilst the 75km of marked ski runs will happily keep you busy during your stay, if you decided to self drive to Puy, take advantage of the fact that a lift pass of 6 days or more gives you access to a day's skiing in one of these resorts too.
Naturally, 'traditional' après ski activities are also on offer including 2 ice rinks, sledging, paragliding, snowmobiles etc etc. If all of this sounds far too tame for you, it is also possible to try out a popular local activity of ice climbing up waterfalls!!
In recognition of its family friendliness Puy St Vincent has been awarded the French 'Family Plus' label to recognise the resort as a child friendly holiday option.
Even if you aren't travelling with children, a great ski holiday in beautiful surroundings is guaranteed, come along and discover it for yourself!
