Nordic ski area of Aussois-Val Cenis Sardières

1500 m - 1600 m
The Monolithe Nordic ski area stretches from 1500 to 1600m between Aussois and Val Cenis Sardières.

It owes its name to a 93 m-high geological curiosity made of cargneule, a sedimentary rock, located in the forest near the pistes, which resembles a needle or a huge menhir.
Once you've got your skis on, the plateau around the Chalet Nordique is the perfect place for children and beginners to discover their first gliding sensations in classic style, or to learn straight away how to skate.
For more experienced skiers, this area is a good warm-up before setting off to conquer the numerous ascents and descents in the area.

Want to discover biathlon? Ask for information at the Nordic Chalet or contact our biathlon instructors who offer laser biathlon lessons by appointment.
Want to improve your classical/alternative skiing or skating skills?
