On both sides of the pass you can admire fabulous mountain ranges : to one side the Taillefer and the Grand Amet, on the other the Tête des Filons and the Vallon.
There are four marked cross-country ski trails for beginners and experienced skiers :
- the 2 kilometre green trail
- the 4 kilometre blue trail
- the 6 kilometre red trail
- the 10 kilometre black trail
A short path (500 metres) connects you to the cross-country ski trails.
All of the slopes are groomed, with the exception of a loop in the black trail left in its natural state for those that wish to do Nordic walking.
It is compulsory to buy a badge from the cross-country ski base and gite 'Le Chantelouve' (N° telephone : +33 (0)4 76 80 44 82).
It is possible to rent cross-country ski equipment, snow shoes and toboggans in the resort.
