Ski break near La Bourboule
When the slopes of the Massif Central and the Chaîne des Puys are completely covered under a blanket of white during winter, the Auvergne transforms into a dream destination for all lovers of skiing and winter sports. With three ski areas spread out around the Puy du Sancy, the highest peak in the Massif Central at 1886 metres, slopes for all abilities await you, such as those at Super Besse, Le Mont-Dore and Chastreix-Sancy.
The closest resort to La Bourboule, Le Mont-Dore offers 15 green slopes, 8 blues, 6 reds and 2 blacks, a fun course, and the Ludo’Glyss fun area with sledging courses and a covered magic carpet.
If you’re more into endurance sports, try some winter activities close to nature such as cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing or dog-sledding. To do this, head to the Sancy Nordic Ski Area, the largest in the Massif Central. There you’ll find 9 connected zones as well as dozens of furnished trails for all levels. The view over the resorts and the surrounding area is breath-taking.
