Authentic village life on the threshold of a huge ski area
Albiez-Montrond belongs to the large ski area Les Sybelles, although the pistes of the two ski areas are not directly connected. To get to the 6 ski places of Les Sybelles, one needs about 20 minutes. The use of both ski areas is possible thanks to a special ski pass for a day of skiing. The so-called "Ici et ailleurs" (here and there) enables skiers to access the 310 km of slopes of Les Sybelles. This ski pass also allows the use of the 600 km of slopes of the neighboring 3 Vallées ski area, which can be reached in 45 minutes by car. The ski area Albiez-Montrond opens up a total of 950 kilometers of pistes for winter sports enthusiasts. Nevertheless, the pistes of Albiez-Montrond are completely sufficient if you just want to ski comfortably and want to spend relaxing holidays in a quiet, family-friendly and affordable ski area. In addition to the well-prepared and marked Alpine ski pistes, the ski area also has a large rolled but not marked area for ski run and other winter activities such as ski hikes.
Family atmosphere in the village-friendly ski area
Designed to meet the needs of beginners and intermediate skiers, Albiez-Montrond is an ideal family ski area. The easy and intermediate pistes are just a few steps away from the chalets and accommodation. They are also reachable thanks to free shuttle buses (pre-order!). The ski area offers various facilities and activities for children: child care, snow groves, leisure center, practice grounds, tobogganing areas and special walks for children. 30 experienced ski instructors at different ski schools offer beginner courses for children from 4 years years old. Trial courses are even available for the youngest ones (from 2 or 2.5 years). For the skine-skiers, there are three green pistes with a conveyor to practice and improve. In addition, children's skijoring is offered on sledges pulled by donkeys. A quick and amusing slide fun for the whole family is provided by the Yooner, a sled with only one runner and a seat fastened above it.
Access to the ski area is either via the street A 43 or by train. The nearest train station for Albiez-Montrond is located 16 km away from Saint-Jean de Maurienne.
