Many people usually ski in the Alps near Grenoble or Chambery, but some would like to spend only a few hours a week and ski regularly without getting up at 5.00 a.m. at the weekends.
So, where can they ski at about 50 km away from Lyon?
The Pilat massif is situated between Saint-Etienne and Lyon and provides snow-covered tracks for those who want to snow walk and ski in the woods (see our previous article).
There are three areas:
Le Bessat village-Grand Bois that offers 35 tracks to ski in the woods, snow-walk or snow-tube.
Saint-Régis-du-Coin village: ski in the woods and snow-walk.
Burdignes: 6 km away from Burdignes village: ski in the woods and snow-walk
You can ski alone or in groups, rent your ski equipment or have ski sessions.
It is going to be possible to ski in the Pilat massif in a few days since they have had 10 cm of snow today.
