St Sorlin has recently been linked with the La Toussuire and Le Corbier ski resorts creating Les Sybelles ski area. It ranks as the 4th largest French ski domain with over 310 kilometres piste, not to mention the great off piste potential. The fantastic ski-ing combined with the panoramic views, make this a perfect ski destination for all levels of skiers.

The St Sorlin area alone has over 120 kilometres of pistes and is generally considered to have the best runs. With village slopes starting at 1550 metres and a current maximum lift altitude of 2620 metres there is normally good snow until the end of April but, just in case, there are plenty of strategically placed snow cannons. St Sorlin has a 16 km cross country ski trail, 6 green, 13 blue, 11 red and 2 black runs with beginners slopes both in the village and up on the plateau.

A charming area to ski without the crowded slopes and queues.

The ever present ESF has classes or individual lessons throughout the day with several English speaking instructors available.

If you have young children in ski school but want to ski all day there is a day nursery, which will take your children to ski school and pick them up for lunch, then return them to ski school if desired. Ages for school start at 3.5 years.

Other Winter Activities

If you decide not to ski for a day then there are other activities that may take your fancy. Try the Snow biking, dog sleighing or raclettes.

Apres Ski - Restaurants and Bars

Apres Ski is a more gentle affair compared to the likes of St Anton is Austria but it does offer a warm welcome and good local fayre. There are several good bars and restaurants in the village as well as other cafes and the ever present pizza van if you are looking a quick bite!
