Winter sports in Orcières Merlette
The Orcières Merlette ski area is located 2,725 meters above sea level. You can ski on the green, blue, red and black slopes of the resort which are accessible by ski lifts (chairlifts, ski lifts and “telemix”). Experienced skiers will also be able to practice in the snowpark, while beginners will learn skiing on easier slopes. The resort’s snow cover is perfect thanks to the snow guns in the ski area. Beginners can take lessons at the ESF Orcières 1850 (French Ski School). The school offers skiing and snowboarding lessons for children and adults whatever their level.
You can also go snowshoeing on the 36-kilometer marked trails from Orcières Merlette to discover the area. Two ski touring itineraries are also accessible in the Orcières ski area, unless you prefer to climb the summits of the Champsaur:

- La Coupa
- Le Palastre
- L’Aiguille d’Orcières
- Le Mourre
You can go safely there with an experienced guide.
