Le Mont Dore is a well equiped winter sports resort. There is a free coach service (navette) from various places around the town (inluding our accomodation) to the Nordic and Alpine ski areas.

With a large ski school offered by ESF it makes Le Mont Dore an ideal place to learn to ski or improve your technique.

Another great feature of the Alpine ski area is the availability of lift passes allowing the purchase of
weekly, 5 day non-consevutive, daily, half day and quarter day passes.
Ideal if you want to take time out and explore the town and the surrounding area
