Ski area Espace Diamant

Ski area Espace Diamant

With the lift pass "Espace Diamant" you have access to a total of 185 km of piste - and therefore 162 diverse piste. 82 lifts ensure that all corners of the ski area are easily reached.

Vast green pastures in summer turn into wonderful skiing areas in winter for both Nordic and Alpine skiing. 6 mountain peaks provide enough options for all levels of skiing, begin beginner or pro. Forest descents take you past old chalet buildings and offer an impressive view on the surrounding mountains and, of course, the fascinating Mont Blanc.

Children and beginners will likely prefer to keep to the foot of the ski area. A free magic carpet is available for children here, and there are some easy beginner slopes which help with getting started. Otherwise, the general rules applies: the higher the pistes are located, the more difficult they are.

If you would like to try out night skiing, you can do so on the piste "Périots". Besides being an event venue, this 1 km long slope is also illuminated with flood-lights in the evenings.

For those, who don't want to spend (all) their time on the normal pistes, there are other exciting challenges to try: 5 boardercross runs, 5 slalom slopes and 3 snow parks. What more could you want?

Night skiing Praz sur Arly

Those who want to have fun on the pistes in the evening will find a small night ski area in the "Domaine des Saisies" area. Here you can go night skiing after the regular opening hours. Above the ski station Les Saisies (1,650 m), an approx. 1 km night ski piste is illuminated by floodlight. There are no fixed times for night skiing, and the dates are usually announced on a notice board on site. The softly declining piste with its tow lift Les Périots is suited for families with children and offers skiing fun in the evening. Apart from night skiing, the slope is also used for many events. From Praz-sur-Arly and Notre Dame de Bellecombe the night ski piste can be reached by ski bus.
