Overview

Built amongst an enormous larch forest, overlooking the exceptional Serre Ponçon and the Embrun Valley, the Les Orres ski resort is a great winter sports destination, either with family or friends. There are 88km of marked ski runs, spread over 1170metres of possible vertical altitude. What with the snow park and a mix of ski slopes for all ability levels, visitors are guaranteed an enjoyable stay. Les Orres ski resort is constantly making efforts to better itself, the facilities in resort for sport (The Pousterle run hosts a round of the European downhill ski cup) and at the same time for families makes it a holiday destination certainly worth considering. In Les Orres, visitors can enjoy a thousand and one activities before and after skiing, through either practicing other sports, or learning about the magnificent local area. On offer the town has, to name but a few Skijoring, fly jumping, paragliding and snowmobiling for all but the most adventurous; For those who are looking to relax, there is a sauna and massage centre. The must try in town is certainly "The Orrian Express", the local bobsleigh track, overlooking the valley, you won't have much time to take in the view on the 1.5km long track which drops 710 vertical metres, spiralling 3 times. The track is a one of a kind in the Hautes-Alpes. Les Orres resort is trying hard to meet the demanding expectations of parents on holiday with the kids. There are care facilities for all age groups: The Nursery welcomes children from 6 months to 5 years, the snow garden from 3 to 6 years and for older kids, the Juni'Orres kids club from 6 to 12 years old. For budding ice skaters there is also the Ice Garden. For modern technology the town is well equipped with 50 Wi-Fi hotspots, covering a large part of the town. Access is free, allowing you to keep in touch with friends or make them jealous with all your holiday photos from Les Orres!
