Unlike downhill skiing, cross-country skiing in the great outdoors allows you to recharge your batteries and enjoy a moment of peace and quiet. From the moment you put on your skis, you’re in total freedom. As you take your first alternating steps, you can feel all your muscles starting to work: adductors, calves, buttocks, forearms – your whole body moves to the rhythm of your progress down the slope.

As you make your way along loops ranging from 1 km to 6 km, depending on your mood and ability, on the Beldina Nordic ski area in Prapoutel or on the Voie Blanche at altitude in Le Pleynet, you ski in harmony with nature. A short climb? Stop for a moment at the summit, take a deep breath and enjoy the magnificent panorama. Of course, going uphill means going downhill. So don’t try to use quarters, there aren’t any…brake…and you’ve arrived in a magnificent little combe.

Discover cross-country skiing in the heart of nature

With 2 Nordic ski areas, Les 7 Laux lets you multiply your pleasures by discovering a multitude of trails, each more beautiful than the last.

  • Prapoutel and its Beldina Nordic ski area, also a 15-minute walk away, offer gentle, playful runs with tobogganing possibilities.
  • Le Pleynet and its “voie blanche” at an altitude of 1950 m, accessible by the Pincerie chairlift, offers 3 km of groomed skating trails in a breathtaking panorama.

And to vary the pleasures of cross-country skiing in the heart of nature, you can also visit the Barioz Nordic area near the 7 Laux ski resort.

At the Barioz Nordic center, there are several itineraries to choose from, starting from the cross-country fireplace or from the Crêt du poulet refuge.

Are you here for several days? If you want to travel far, take care of your mount. Start with a few kilometers of runs, especially if you’re skiing with the family and children. Once you’ve got the hang of it, the Beldina or Tour du Pré de l’Arc runs await you for 6 and 5 kilometers respectively. The bravest skiers and those with a good level of skiing can take on the black run of the Beldina challenge in the Prapoutel ski area.
