Skiing in Saint Jean d’Aulps – part of Portes du Soleil

The local ski area, La Grande Terche, also known as “Espace Roc d’Enfer”, is a hidden gem popular with locals on powder days or to avoid the crowds in peak season.

It covers 50km of pistes in a beautiful and unspoilt setting, including a large amount of off-piste terrain. As it is relatively unknown to many visitors, the pistes tend to remain quiet even during the busiest weeks of the season. You will also find a number of great restaurants, including La Licorne. 

The resort is covered by the Portes du Soleil ski pass and there is a regular shuttle service that takes you to the other bigger ski resorts.
