Saint Francois is also popular because of its wide range of services for families and children, including numerous childcare facilities like the “Saperlipopette” children’s village as well as special events.

Wide range of cross-country skiing trails

Around two-thirds of the pistes range from easy to medium, and are therefore ideal for those new to the sport and families; there are also specially installed practice areas. More advanced skiers also have the choice of numerous more demanding slopes, including mogul slopes, wide powder snow fields and extremely challenging steep slopes.

A snow park next to the Rocher Blanc ski lift as well as a boarder cross trail beneath the La Lune Bleue chair lift complete the Alpine activities on offer for skiers in Saint Francois.

Saint Francois is particularly interesting for fans of cross-country skiing. A total of 40 kilometres of trails wind through the beautiful mountain landscape around Saint Francois and are mainly recommended for advanced winter sports fans. For those new to the sport there is a 5 kilometre beginner’s trail; the high-altitude trail up to 1533m is also well worth trying.

If you’d like to experience the winter landscape around Saint Francois in a totally different way there is a dog sled ride or a snow shoe hike on offer.
