Ski and ski touring

With an ideal climate, Queyras is made up of the highest inhabited valleys ... in Europe!

Its ski resort and its 900m vertical drop, Abriès-Ristolas will appeal to families, beginners skiers or experienced off-piste.


With a guide, you can also explore the multitude of ski touring routes in the Haut-Guil valley or in the other valleys of Queyras.

Queyras, for mountain initiates, is a real El Dorado of ski touring: immaculate landscapes, exceptional snow and a preserved environment allow ski hikers to enjoy the Queyrassian calm from the first snow to the spring snows .

Many local guides offer you to explore this unspoiled environment, notably thanks to an eco-responsible attitude.


For example at L'Ancolie Bleue, we offer zero waste picnics during your ski holiday! We provide boxes and cutlery that you bring back to us at the end of the day! In addition, the picnics are home cooked!
