This is where the famous Nordic ski champion Jason Lamy Chappuis, gold medal winner at the 2010 Winter Olympics, grew up. The resort is made up of four mountain villages: Prémanon, Bois d'Amont, Les Rousses and Lamoura. Labelled Flocon Vert (for a commitment to sustainable and respectful winter sports practice), the ski area stands out for its wide choice of slopes for all levels and its breathtaking natural landscapes. Your Les Rousses ski hire will enable you to discover the four Franco-Swiss massifs of the domain.
