Nordic (cross-country) skiing
(or known in french as 'ski de fond')
There are three nordic ski areas close by. Closest, just a kilometre away is the En Vallée area, that runs around the lakes and through the forest between Morillon, Verchaix and Samoëns. The Au Fer à Cheval is a short 10km drive along the vallley floor, starting at Molliets and running along to the Fer à Cheval at the end of the valley. If there is not enough snow in the valley for the local 'ski de fond' runs to open, its a short drive up to Joux Plane (1700m high) for a range of circuits at the nordic park.
More information about ski de fond is available on the Vallée de Haut-Giffre website.
