A quiet resort in one of the Southern Alps’ largest ski areas, SuperDévoluy is a great choice for schools. Purpose-built with superb piste access, Swing open the hotel doors and you’re within minutes of the lifts. The beautiful peak of the Pic de Bure is an inspiring backdrop for each day’s skiing, while the uncrowded pistes help to boost everyone’s confidence.
Linking to the neighbouring resort of La Joue du Loup, the lift system is super-efficient and snow cannons help to keep the pistes in excellent condition. There's plenty to do for après-ski, your group can watch the weekly torchlit descent, and eat crèpes to their heart’s content.
Sharing the ski area with La Joue du Loup, most of the runs are rated easy or intermediate, with varied terrain that give plenty of scope for mixed ability groups. For first-timers, the nursery slopes are conveniently located at village-level, where they can learn the basics before trying out their skills on the gentle blues and easy greens running from the top of the Chaumettes chair.
Confident skiers can experience the resort from top to bottom as they conquer their fears on the high altitude blacks and finish on the flowing blues that run back towards the village.
