Nestled amid the French Maritime Alps, between the two peaks of La Pendine (2750m) and Les Têtes (2044m), lies the ski area of Puy Saint Vincent.
Located at the heart of the "Les Écrins" national park, the perfect weather conditions make for a ski holiday to remember. The towering peaks surrounding the ski area act as a very effective wind-break, whilst the nearby glaciers of the "Écrin" Massif ensure that the supply of fresh snow to the ski slopes never falters, even late in the season. 31 ski runs, totaling 75km in all, may make Puy Saint Vincent a relatively compact ski area, but if visitors think this means a lack of variety, they are in for a real surprise. One minute visitors will find themselves skiing across vast expanses of clear, open mountainside, and the next they will be winding their way down through thick woodlands.
However, one thing all of the runs do have in common is breathtaking views of the "Écrin" Massif. The various parts of the ski area are linked by an ample network of 12 lifts, which transport guests quickly and comfortably to their activities of choice.
