Skiing cross-country in the wild

Prapoutel & Le Pleynet

Whether you’re skating or taking the alternating steps, cross-country skiing in the wild provides an exceptional experience. Smell the fir trees, see rabbit tracks, enjoy nature in its most beautiful. Evolving on trails that are sometimes groomed from Prapoutel or Pleynet makes you feel like you have wings.

A sense of


Unlike alpine skiing, cross-country skiing in the wild allows you to recharge and re-energize while taking a moment of calm. From the moment you put on your skis, it’s a real freedom that is given to you. As you take your first alternating steps you can feel all your muscles starting to work: adductors, calves, gluteal muscles, forearm muscles, it’s the whole of your body that starts moving as you progress on the trail.

As you progress on the loops that range from 1 km to 6 km depending on your desires and your level on the nordic domain of Beldina in Prapoutel or on the Pleynet altitude domain, you ski in harmony with nature. A little climb? Stop for a few moments at the summit, breathe with full lungs and enjoy the magnificent panorama that opens up to you. Of course, whoever climbs must inevitably descend. So, don’t try to use quarters, there are none… brake… you have arrived in a magnificent little combe.

Discover cross-country skiing in the wild 

With their 2 skiable nordic domains, 7 Laux allows you to multiply the pleasures by discovering a multitude of trails more beautiful than the other.

  • Prapoutel and its nordic domain of Beldina, which is also a 15-minute walk away, offers slopes with a gentle and playful profile with opportunities to sledge.
  • The Pleynet and its nordic domain of altitude located at 1,950 m altitude and accessible by the Pinserie chairlift.

And to vary the pleasures, to cross-country skiing in nature, you can also go to the nordic space of Barioz near the 7 Laux resort

In the nordic space of Barioz several routes are available to you with a departure from the bottom fireplace or a departure from the Crêt du poulet shelter.

Are you here for several days? Who wants to travel far, spares his mount. Start with the trails a few kilometres long especially if you are skiing with your family with children. When your skills are well honed, the trails of the Beldina or the Tour du Pré de l’Arc await you with circuits of 6 and 5 kilometres. The bravest and those with a good level will be able to set off as the black trail of the Beldina Challenge on the Prapoutel resort.
