File on the former station of Céüze, which has just closed its doors in April 2020:

A ski resort that closed its ski area

Céüze is an epic ski resort. The history of skiing in the region goes back to the Second World War. Over the years, the infrastructure has adapted to the needs of skiers and sports standards, but then the activity has gradually declined.

Until April 2020, the ski resort of Ceuze had an impressive equipment such as its 17 slopes of 24 km including 5 red slopes, 7 blue slopes and 7 green slopes, its 7 lifts and its ski tows, including 1 telebaby. Today, due to a lack of money, the slopes are at a standstill.

But it remains a quiet high altitude village

Located in the Hautes-Alpes, the resort is nestled on the slopes of the Céüze mountain. It has a preserved and quiet space, the whole offering a panoramic view on the valley of the Durance, the snowy massifs of Dévoluy, Champsaur with the Écrins in background, the mount Ventoux, the high Ubaye, La Cluse and the Vercors.

With an altitude ranging from 1550 to 2016 meters, the resort is the perfect place to spend a family vacation.

With many possible activities (except skiing)

Known for being an unmissable ski resort, Céüze also offers other diverse activities. The ski slopes are not exclusively reserved for skiing, you can also practice all kinds of sliding sports such as sledding, mountain biking, etc.

For hikers, they will not be disappointed, because the area offers a vast meadow to go on an adventure. If you prefer to spend quiet and peaceful moments, the region can also offer you that. The landscape, the green space, the panoramic view, Céüze has all the assets to make your stay unforgettable.

For nature lovers, the region is also home to an impressive biodiversity. But what attracts more and more thrill-seekers in recent years is climbing. Climbers from all over the world rush to climb the impressive cliffs that the region offers. Whatever your preferences, Céüze is a destination for everyone.
