Aussois - Val Cenis Sardières

Nordic ski resort

The Monolithe Nordic ski area stretches from 1,500 to 1,600 metres above sea level between Aussois and Val Cenis Sardières. It takes its name from a geological curiosity formed of carbonate sedimentary rock, a giant needle-like menhir of 93 metres in height that stands in the forest near the skiing trails.

from 19/12/2020 to 13/03/2021

Monolithe Nordic ski area, Aussois-Val Cenis Sardières

  • 39 km of groomed trails for diagonal and skate-skiing
  • 3 red trails – 2 green trails – 3 blue trails – 1 black trail
  • From La Croix in the village (access by car, shuttle bus or a 15-minute walk) head for Sardières.
  • Val Cenis Sardières and Aussois benefit from generous sunshine thanks to their southern exposure.
  • In Val Cenis Sardières, accessible by public transport or by car,  a Nordic chalet opens its doors 7 days a week during the ski season to provide any information you may need for your cross-country skiing sessions.
  • There’s also a picnic room which provides shelter in bad weather. This location is a popular meeting point for lessons with the cross-country skiing and biathlon instructors.


  • Once on their skis, children and beginners can discover those first sensations of classic cross-country skiing, or go straight for the skating technique, on the plateau around the Nordic Chalet.
  • This area is recommended as a good warm-up spot for more experienced cross-country skiers before they head for the more hilly trails across the ski area.
  • Fancy trying biathlon? Ask at the Nordic Chalet or make an appointment directly with our biathlon instructors for an introductory laser biathlon session.
  • Want to improve your classic/diagonal or skate-skiing technique? Get in touch with our instructors who will be able to give you a few tips to make your sport even more enjoyable, for mile after mile of pleasure!
