A fun ski day in Chabanon-Selonnet
Chabanon-Selonnet, one of our favourite resorts in the Southern French Alps for a day’s skiing, is around fifty kilometres from Digne-Les-Bains in the Blanche Serre-Ponçon valley. Ranging in altitude between 1550 and 2000 metres, the 40 kilometres of runs are right there waiting for you: In the middle of a huge forest of fir trees, those of you who do Nordic or Alpine skiing, snowshoeing or tobogganing or even snowboarding will have a ball! But if all you have is a day, go for a novelty and try a yooner, a sport which is somewhere between tobogganing and skiing. For big families, don’t miss the snake-gliss; a train of toboggans linked together to form a long snake for a lot of laughs all through the afternoon. And for a gentler outing, end your day with a skijoring session where the horse is your best friend.
