Believe it or not, the small Alpine ski area of Bessans is very popular with families of Nordic skiers, because the downhill skiing is pleasant and easy! You don’t need vast slopes for your first downhill experience!

Alpine ski area
2 ski tows
1 baby rope-lift
3km of slopes (2 blues – 1 green)
From the heart of the village, the ski area is easy to reach on foot with a sledge (if there’s snow on the road) or by car.
Many families choose Bessans for this convenience: while parents and grandparents cover endless Nordic trails on foot, skis or snowshoes, the children learn Alpine skiing, or Nordic skiing of course.
Ski rental shops and ski instructors nearby: everything you need for your first Alpine skiing or snowboarding lesson!
Another advantage worth noting: the smaller the ski area, the less you pay for the lift pass!
