Whether with family or with friends, whether you're sporting or not, Ancelle is waiting for you. Whether you're interested in food and wine or downhill skiing there is something for everyone. The downhill skiing on offer is well exposed to the weather and receives a good snow covering throughout the winter season. The varied cross-country skiing allows the less daring to explore the mountain range, skiing through the dabbled light of the larch forests of the Southern Alps. The Ancelle ski resort, built at 1350 metres high, prides itself on its wonderful views, its array of activities on offer and of cause a good quality of snow that satisfies skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. The entire area (excluding Costebelle-Moissière and the ‘Piste B') is covered by a comprehensive snowmaking system that ensures a sufficient snow cover throughout the winter. At the bottom of the slopes, visitors can ski down to a choice of friendly sun soaked terraces. For kids and adults alike there is a popular area set aside for tobogganing right at the bottom of the ski lifts! For those ‘Nu Skool' Skiers and snowboarders the resort and association of Ancelle Polemik have built a great snow park and a boarder cross track since 2006. The freestyle area is highly accessible, with a range of jumps, rails and features for all abilities. At the bottom of the ski slopes visitors will find the "Polemik” Park. The Snow Park is made up of many different obstacles, a kid's area with music, a picnic table and a barbecue. A great place to hone your skills, to learn to “freestyle” or just enjoy the good humour that is always in the air! Thanks to its unique location, nestled in middle of an open plateau exposed to a large amount of snow, Ancelle is also well suited to traditional Nordic activities. You can choose between 4 cross country ski loops for all abilities and fitness levels (from 3.5 to 10 km). There are also many other places to go walking. The ski resort links to 8 other ski villages and in total has about 200 km of trails that allow visitors to get around the mountain range relatively easily. Accommodation in Ancelle is well varied (hotels, lodges, charming bed and breakfasts, campsites, furnished apartments, etc...) and has all the traditional mountain resort facilities easily accessible. With an ESF (French Ski School) and a Snow Kindergarten, Ancelle is able to accommodate all the family. After a busy day, what could be nicer than a stroll in the village for a warm crepe (French pancakes) or the discovery of Ancelle's unique high-alpine architecture.
