Are you a sliding enthusiast and seasoned skier looking for an original ski resort that immerses you in a natural site of great beauty ? Welcome to the "Les Ores" resort in the Hautes-Alpes de Savoie.
The ski resort of Les Orres, located in an exceptional natural setting, has a ski area from where you can admire the panoramic views of the Ecrins National Park and the Parpaillon massif while enjoying the sun of the Southern Alps.
In addition to accommodation and restaurants, the town provides you with free Internet access thanks to the 115 Wi-Fi terminals installed, but also to the Orres application which will inform you about the condition of the roads and tracks and the geolocation of the shuttles.
The ski area of Les Orres is made up of 36 slopes that extend over a hundred kilometres, both for beginners - 9 green, 5 blue, and for those who like more technical slopes with 18 red and 4 black. To access it, you have 17 lifts, including 8 chairlifts and 9 ski lifts.
However, even technical trails such as the Pousterle have been designed to be accessible at all levels. If you are a beginner, you can enjoy an initiation area located at the top of the Prélongis chairlift. If you are more advanced, take the Crêtes chairlift to enjoy the two blue slopes or take the Grand Cabane slope (access via the Pousterle chairlift) which offers a magnificent panorama.
As for new features, the new chairlift: "Pic Vert", with 6 seats, starts from the 1650 snow front and continues until the arrival of the Grand Clos chairlift.
For freestyle enthusiasts, jumps and other tricks on the snow, Les Orres offers a snowpark divided into three zones: the Big Air, a snowpark on Pramouton and the boardercross on Galopins - whoops, turns and a jump are on the programme.
And if you want even more thrills, the Orrian Express sled will take you down more than 700 metres with tight turns, 360° twists and wave zones. An attraction for all ages that is sure to be fun!
For adrenaline enthusiasts, you can also enjoy other activities such as airboarding - an original slide on an inflatable sled that is guided by tilting the body to one side and the other, paragliding, wing jump, snake slide or snowmobile.
The Nordic area of Les Orres will allow you to take magnificent snowshoe rides, with or without an guide.
And if you go with children, don't worry because you can take them to the clubs on site or let them enjoy the two snow gardens with formulas for learning to ski for toddlers from the age of 3.

In conclusion, the resort of Les Orres, although less well known, is an ideal winter destination and hosts several major sporting and cultural events that you can enjoy during your stay.
