Sainte-Anne ski resort: skiing and outdoor activities in Ubaye

More than just a village resort, Sainte-Anne is a genuine escape – a breath of fresh air in the heart of wild, pure mountains. Intimate and charming, this little nest in Ubaye valley welcomes families and adventure-seekers alike in a peaceful setting of wide-open spaces, for a holiday to remember in the sun-drenched Alpes de Haute Provence.

Pure ski: winter in Sainte-Anne

When winter arrives, the village awakens to the sound of skilifts serving the domain’s 13 slopes: 6 green, 4 blue, 2 red and 1 black, plus a toboggan park and kindergarten. Laughter lights up the days, ringing out amid the silent mountains. That’s the magic of Sainte-Anne: this family-style ski resort perched at an altitude of 1,800 metres rubs shoulders with the Italian Alps and offers sublime vistas over infinite mountain chains from its peaks at 2,400 metres. This is a freerider‘s paradise: dig your skis into the powder snow and make your mark as you slalom between firs and bump. Sports fans seeking new adventures will love trying their hand at snowscoot: a wide snow scooter promising a fun and original descent. You can hire one on site to quench your thirst for thrills and spills. To find out more, check out the trail map and prices, then book your stay online.

Sainte-Anne in summer: plural outdoor pleasures

In summer, the melting snow unveils jutting landscapes, but the mountainscenery, impressive yet delicate, remains pure and immaculate. You can explore the Ubaye mountain passes by bike, alternating dizzy ascents and gentle stretches: simply pick the adventure of your dreams. If you want to make the most of the scenery and focus on your technique while revelling in unbridled freedom, the Allos and Varsmountain passes are reserved for cyclists. Mountain bikers will love the Transubayenne – a 100 km trail crossing the valley, featuring winding descents through meadows and secluded stretches snaking through forests. You’ll find lots of signposted hiking trails too, rising up to wild, arid mountainscapes, criss-crossing larch forests and spanning meadows. But the real summer delights of Sainte-Anne are simply too good to describe in words – you have to live them.

Larger-than-life sensations in every season

Far from the hustle and bustle of the busier resorts, Sainte-Anne is somewhat reserved, inviting visitors to relax, explore and enjoy a change of scenery. The sunshine is dazzling and the conversation with nature never-ending. Daydreamers, sports fans and explorers all find something to love here and every adventure is dotted with must-have gourmet local specialities, such as oven-baked ravioles or “fumeton” – thinly-sliced dried, salted lamb you can savour as a starter, snack or with your raclette

Whether you’re a fan of history, fine arts or natural sciences, the Alpes de Haute Provence is a fascinating hub of culture and heritage, also offering museums for every taste !
