Carroz d'Araches (Les)
As early as 1936, the ski resort of Carroz d'Araches was transformed to welcome the first Swiss tourists. In 1939, the very first ski lift was built at an altitude of 1600 metres and made it possible to reach the top of the slopes in just 15 minutes. Several slopes were accessible at the time and a first ski pass was created. In 2020, the resort of Les Carroz d'Araches celebrated the 90th anniversary of the ski club which saw the birth of skiing legends such as Maurice Poncet or the Leduc sisters.
