The snowpark consists of 3 runs: a skicross / boardercross run, a run equipped with freestyle modules, big airs of different amplitudes and workshops with bars and rails to suit all levels and types of practice, and a run made up of a remodelled canyon, a real natural half pipe 300 metres long that can be used at different starting levels, corresponding to increasing difficulty. For technical ski lovers, Sauze has a permanent training and competition stadium, the Brec piste, FIS approved, dedicated to technical events, i.e. slalom and giant slalom. With a 250 m difference in height and a length of 1000 m, the stadium is covered with artificial snow, which gives it an ideal quality of hardness. A godsend for all clubs, as the piste is dedicated to them all season long.

Many other activities are possible in Sauze such as snowshoeing, to discover the secret life of the winter world. If you would rather discover the area in a dog sled or going on an adventure on a moonbike after the slopes have closed, it’s also possible ! The après-ski is not to be forgotten, with an indoor swimming pool, several wellness areas and a cinema !
