Nordic ski area of Aussois-Val Cenis Sardières

1500 m - 1600 m

The Nordic domain of Monolithe extends from 1500 to 1600m between Aussois and Val Cenis Sardières.
It owes its name to a geological curiosity in cargneule, a sedimentary rock, 93 m high, located in the forest near the slopes, which looks like a needle or a huge menhir.
Once you have put your skis on, the plateau around the Nordic Chalet allows children and beginners to discover their first sensations of classic skiing or to learn directly about skating.
For the more experienced skiers, this area is recommended for a good warm-up before setting off to conquer the numerous ascents and descents of the domain.

Want to discover biathlon? Ask for information at the Nordic Chalet or contact our biathlon instructors who offer laser biathlon lessons by appointment.
