The ski area offers you the chance to enjoy freshly-groomed pistes every Wednesday * morning. Starting from Arc 1600, 1800, 1950 and 2000, you meet on the slopes to make your first tracks at sunrise, ending with breakfast in one of the resort’s mountain restaurants.

*In case of bad weather, First Tracks will be postponed till Friday.


6.30 am, your alarm goes off. Your eyes are prickly, you’re having trouble remembering why you’re inflicting such an early alarm call on yourself while you’re on holiday.

7.30 am, meet up with the piste patrol on the snow front.

7.45 am, head off to the slopes.

8.00 am, you’re at the top. The sun’s first rays are licking the top of Mont Blanc, which slowly turns pale pink. You’re then alone in the ski area, ready to launch yourself onto the freshly-groomed pistes.

8.05 am, the cold stings your cheeks and nose. The spectacle is unique. It’s time to make your first tracks and feel the snow sliding under your ski tips.

9.00 am, it’s time to go in search of your final reward for getting up so early, breakfast in a mountain restaurant.
