Skiing in Aveyron
Located in the south of the Massif Central, between Aveyron and Lozère, the plateau of Aubrac is a singular territory : A triangle of only 40 kilometers by 20, with such a strong personality that from the first steps, we feel here in a world apart… With a altitude At an average altitude of 1200 meters, Aubrac is far from the Pyrenean or Alpine summits and yet it is one of the coldest regions in France. This small immensity sometimes bathed in an atmosphere worthy of the Great North is necessarily conducive to long snowshoeing trips, Nordic skiing sessions, the baptisms in dogsleds but also to the practice of skiing in one of the 4 ski resorts of Aveyron Brameloup, Laguiole, Nasbinals and Sainte Urcize.
Two ski resorts on a human scale, such as Laguiole and Brameloup, are located in the heart of the Aubrac.
THE SKI RESORT OF LAGUIOLE
It is the small resort family par excellence with a village at an altitude of 407 m. Thanks to its 15 slopes on two sides: the Source and the Bouyssou, it is ideal for learning downhill skiing. Little beginners will appreciate the telescope (the mini ski lift) and the small downhill children’s garden. Are you tired of downhill skiing? The luge allows you to ensure the cheers !
The amateurs of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing have no right to make mistakes. The Aubrac offers an infinite diversity thanks to more than 50 km of ski trails and 30 km of snowshoeing trails!
