The Chazelet Village Ski Area

Just opposite the famous Vallons de la Meije lies the small village ski resort of Chazelet where you will ski in stunning surroundings without digging too deep into your pockets.

This little community ski area is just the right size for a fun and reassuring family ski experience. On these sunny slopes you will advance from green to red, and then perhaps to powder. The children can enjoy a run on their own as the area is small enough to have an overview. How about a coffee break on the sunny terrace while you watch the kids fine-tune their turns, or perhaps you would rather make a few turns yourself while the little ones zoom down the slopes with their ski instructor? Even experienced skiers don’t turn their nose up at the Chazelet on a powder day.

The view of the majestic la Meije and the glaciers does not make the experience any less enjoyable. At the top of the Emparis and the Plagnes draglift, you’ll have to slow down a little to admire the spectacular north faces. The highest points of the resort also make you gain a few hundred meters if you are going ski touring.

You can buy your seasons pass online at the Chazelet web page. Discounts if you buy before November 30th.

The descent of the Emparis plateau offers stunning views of the peaks on the other side of the valley, here the Râteau and the Peyrou d'Amont.
