Aussois - Val Cenis Sardières

Nordic ski resort

The Monolithe Nordic area stretches between 1,500 and 1,600 metre elevations between Aussois and Val Cenis Sardières. It takes its name from a geological curiosity formed of carbonate sedimentary rock that stands in the forest by the slopes, like a giant needle or menhir of 93 metres in height.
