LA POYA ski area (Le Buet, Vallorcine)

⛷ La Poya is a small family-run ski area in the hamlet of Le Buet (not far from the 🚞 train station), near to Vallorcine.

It comprises:

  • two drag lifts;
  • a rope tow for Beginners and a pulley lift for small children;
  • 2km of pistes, including green, blue, red and even a black piste;

You can opt for a 🗺 half-day ski pass, at a very reasonable price, perfect for little skiers who tire quickly or need an afternoon nap!

There is ESF Piou Piou on-site, in a secure area.

Another great feature is the proximity of ❄️ snow-shoeing trails through 🌲 the forest, so non-skiers can head off while the little ones have fun skiing. The Buvette de la Cascade de Bérard is sometimes open in the winter season.
