Pra Loup

Ski Pra Loup

Set in the Southern Alps, Pra Loup’s sunny weather, laid back vibe and family friendly focus make it a great choice for school ski trips. A purpose-built resort made up of two villages, Pra Loup 1600 has a good choice of shops and cafes, while Pra Loup 1500 is more peaceful. The Espace Lumière ski area has been well designed to maximise your ski time and, When each ski day is done, there’s the local ice-rink and cinema to enjoy, as well as plenty of après-ski activities to keep your group entertained.

More popular with French families than English crowds, Pra Loup also gives school groups an opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture and brush up on their language skills, while the low-key nightlife means that everyone can get a good night’s sleep.

Skiing

Pra Loup’s ski area appeals to all abilities. The village-level nursery slopes are a relaxing place to get started and, when it’s time to progress, a network of blues sweeps from the top of the mountain down to Pra Loup 1600.

Experienced skiers have plenty of reds and the odd black run to challenge themselves on, while the resort’s long open pistes provide ample space to progress. Reliable snowfall and some France’s best snowmaking facilities keep the pistes topped up all season, and the low-level tree runs makes skiing back to base easier in bad weather.
