Les Karellis: a ski resort in the heart of nature

Fauna, flora...the mountain is an entire ecosystem!

Combining tourism and respect for the environment: a must!

The resort was  originally designed to respect the environment. Its construction did not scare away the wild animals - in fact it had the opposite effect. With a little luck you might meet a deer or a fox as you ski around Les Karellis! On the summits (summer and winter), it's not rare to see a few chamois!

Hike or ski in the heart of a larch forest, with easy access to many protected sites. The Gros Mélèze (the oldest larch tree in Europe) at 600 years old is 30 metres high and 6.4m in circumference and Pramol Lake, hidden by the ice in winter or reflecting the mountains in the summer.

Animals, environment and history to discover

Winter is a difficult season for fauna; the black grouse must avoid the skiers and pedestrians in its winter habitat, but Les Karellis helps protect a large population of this emblematic animal of the Alps.
