Val d'Allos - La Foux Resort

The Val d’Allos is divided into three areas: two modern ski resorts - La Foux and Le Seignus - and an old mountain village called Allos.

King of the valley, La Foux sits up at 1800m, a collection of wooden chalets and mountain homes. Together with Pra Loup, it’s part of the 180km Espace Lumière which has a whole host of blue and red runs, and a decent amount of greens and blacks to fill a week on the mountains.

But that’s not your lot… 10km along the valley, Seignus is tight-knit a mix of traditional builds with its own 23km ski area.

9km from Foux and 2km from Seignus, Allos (sometimes known as Le Village) brushes against the Mercantour National park, and makes a pretty and traditional base to explore the valley from.

Skiing/BoardingSkiing in Val d'Allos - La Foux

ESF is the main ski school here, and you can pick up the basics on the Gentianes and Seolane green runs near the village (the former has snow cannon coverage). Then progress via the Aguille chairlift, where a handful of blues link up to the Chaup and Plaines lifts (stop at the top here, for awesome views of the valley and the Rochecline mountain).

Intermediates can link over to Pra Loup from the Tete de Vescal, where the Aigle run connects with Perdrix down to Les Agneliers. Take the chairlift here and another to Le Lac, where you can ski a fabulously long run back (Quartiers, then Chemin des Agneliers). For more thigh-burning, ski the Sources du Verdon from Tete de Sestriere, which joins with blue runs back to La Faux. It’s well worth heading down to Les Seignus for a day to experience the incredible Valcibie re and Gros Tapy.

Experts will want to climb to the top of the area (take the La Chaup chair, ski Roche aux fees, then hop on the Observatoire chair) where the 3 Eveches black wiggles down the valley. Save a day or two for Seignus, where Combe Leo Lacroix and L’Abrevoir are two of the steepest runs in the area. A guide will be able to show you the best off piste around the Lumière. For freestylers, the terrain park as a big air bag, tables and boxes in advanced and expert levels.

Val d'Allos - La Foux Apres Ski

The bar scene is limited, but La Foux has a good amount of restaurants to explore throughout the week. Chez Natacha et Gael and Le 106 welcome families with open arms, serving all the mountain favourites and hosting laid back après ski. For a bit more of a party, look out for the DJ events at Restaurant Le Parapente up on the slopes. Back at base, Le Porquoi Pas is worth hunting down for fondues and crepes. If all you need is a sugary snack, try C’Claire’s amazing waffles.

When it comes to off-slope activities, you’ll find sledding, a luge track, ice driving, piste bully driving and ice skating.

You won’t find a glacier for year-round skiing here, but with the ski area going up to 2600m the snow tends to stick around. Pistes like the green Gentianes, blue Lievres and Chemin de l’Abrau and red Arnica are covered by snow cannons, to provide a good base prior to the start of the season and keep things topped up when need be.

GroupsGroup Holidays Val d'Allos - La Foux

With an 180km ski area ahead of you and more over in Le Seignus, groups are unlikely to get bored on these mountains. If you like pub crawls and night clubs however, you might find the area lacking a little – it’s much better for groups who prefer quiet evenings enjoying good food and wine. There are some cracking activities to bring everyone together, like the luge run and driving piste bashers.
