Ski area focus
The resort has 21 different ski slopes stretching across 55 kilometres, with a range of pistes for all ski levels so that everyone can enjoy winter sports at their own pace: 3 black runs, 7 red runs, 6 blue runs and 5 green runs.
To get to the slopes, a free shuttle bus takes you directly to the base of the ski lifts. You can also find additional facilities on the ski slopes, including: 1 boarder cross course (timed and tracked obstacle course with doors, bumps, and banked turns) and 1 snowpark.
Aussois has three ski schools catering to all ages and levels, starting from 2.5 years old. The Loisirs et glisse pour tous ski school, ESF (French Ski School) and SoSkiNordic. Whatever your starting level, you can choose to improve your alpine skiing, Nordic skiing and snowboarding – as well as many other winter sports activities. And kids of all ages can try out the hugely popular yooner – a vehicle somewhere between sledding and skiing designed for seeking new thrills on the slopes.
For people with reduced mobility, handiskiing classes are also on offer, and the necessary equipment is available to hire. As for the little ones, the ESF offers "ski lesson + daycare" packages that let you take children directly to the daycare centre once the lesson is finished without having to go back down the slopes.
In addition to skiing, the Aussois ski area offers many activities: dog sledding, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, snow tubing, yooner rides, snowshoeing, etc.
