25 minutes from Moûtiers and 10 minutes from La Plagne ski area, Notre-Dame-du-Pré is Savoie Mont-Blanc’s smallest ski resort!
A family resort nestled on a high plateau in the Vanoise massif, at an altitude of 1275 m, Notre-Dame-du-Pré enjoys a privileged environment where tranquillity and conviviality reign, far from the hustle and bustle of the larger resorts. It’s the perfect ski area to learn ski while enjoying the thrill of snowsports at a bargain price.
With 3 ski lifts and 6 slopes of varying levels (blue, green and red), you can ski smartly and serenely while enjoying the fresh mountain air. The perfect combination for maximum relaxation!
Those looking for a more extensive ski area will find it just 10 minutes away by car, in the Paradiski® ski area : it counts no less than 425 km of runs for all levels, 186 km of cross-country ski runs and 40 km of ski touring trails.
As you can see, Notre-Dame-du-Pré is a paradise for skiing but not only: downhill skiing, ski touring, walking, themed snowshoe outings (wildlife observation / “fondue hikes”, etc.), tobogganing, etc. There are so many activities to enjoy and create unforgettable memories with family and friends.
In summer, the natural and peaceful setting is much sought after by hikers and mountain bikers, but Notre-Dame-du-Pré is also a great destination for climbers with the Glaisy climbing rock near the eponymous campsite and the ecolodges. It’s also the ideal spot for a horse or pony ride, a day out for yoga, the discovery of edible and medicinal plants, the discovery of wildlife or an evening introduction to astronomy.
Lovers of authenticity will appreciate the rurality of the place, the traditional habitat made of stone and wood, the old streets, the careful decoration of the facades, the fountains in the heart of the village and the beautiful 18th century baroque church. The ideal place to take a break from your digitalized and digitized daily life and enjoy the direct contact with nature.
