Like a hidden gem? This could be yours. In a somewhat undiscovered region of the French Alps, Les 7 Laux offers a more relaxed and unspoiled atmosphere. Not to mention lower prices for those on a budget. Just a short transfer from Grenoble and Chambéry, this spot is ideal for a weekend getaway. The area itself has 120km of slopes and is made up of three main areas: Le Pleynet (1450 m), Prapoutel (1350 m) and Pipay (1550 m).
Freeriders and daredevils alike will love the Oakley 7 Laux Park, found on the Pleynet side via the sun’s ski lift. Race your friends on the specially built course. Learn how to freestyle on the artificial and natural rails. Or take it up a level in The Pro Park. Either way, you’re in for a treat – or should we say trick! Not feeling the pistes? Why not try your hand at snowshoeing, dog sledding, paragliding, or micro light flights.
