La Poya Ski Area (Le Buet, Vallorcine)

*NB La Poya will shut for the 2017/2018 season on 15th April 2018*

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, with 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.

Eating Options

There is a snack bar on-site, selling hot dogs, crêpes and other snacks and refreshments.  You will find relaxing bean-bags and some old télécabines feature as picnic spots.

Blogger/entrepreneur Mummy in the Mountains, who visited La Poya with her young family, also recommends the Hotel du Buet for a lunch stop.
