Val Louron, an ideal beginners ski resort
The Val Louron ski resort is particularly famous for the quality of its beginners area, which is playful, safe and always well snowed, sheltered by a lush firs forest. It’s especially suitable for young children, because it allows them to evolve in a dedicated space, protected from the flow of advanced skiers, which limits the maximum risk of collisions so the smallest one of the house can learn in a safe environment.
The lifts of this area have been specially studied so that the beginners can access them, without freeing pending sources and without having to take another ski lift or walk long distances loaded with the material.
The lifts of the lower part of the station are in areas that are very accessible with boots, facilitating learning, such as the Trounquet carpet and the Sapins chairlift, which can be reached by walking just a few steps from the cafes at the beginning of the track.
Do you have very young children? Don’t worry, because one of the attractions of this resort for families is the professional team and the facilities for the little ones. The kindergarten located at the lowest part of the track allows to make the first glides, in the middle of several modules of games and figures of animals such as bisons, penguins, cows, bears…
The nursery «Le Lustou» is located at the lowest part of the slopes and it’s ideal for your children to take the first steps in the snow, aimed at children who are 3 years old. All in a 100% safe environment so that parents can be comfortably seated on the terrace having a drink while supervising the activity of their children in a professional, caring and most importantly, safe environment.
But as we indicated in the headline, the resort of Val Louron is not only an area for beginners or an easy mountain in all its extension. The ski area hides a much more rugged face at higher levels, providing expert skiers of all levels and difficult slopes, especially for practitioners of more advanced level. We could say that the famous black track of Isards is reserved for the experts.
A real challenge for freeriders who wish to venture on steep slopes, with narrow areas in some passages and striking views of the Aure Valley. Note that this area is not normally trampled and the terrain is irregular, so descending this area will require and test the good physical condition of skiers and snowboarders.
Val Louron, Freeride ski resort
Indeed, Val Louron is a true paradise for powder skiing and off-track skiing, which must be enjoyed with extreme caution, previously verifying the risks of avalanches and without forgetting the essential safety equipment (arva, shovel, probe…).
