Pralognan la Vanoise

The village, Pralognan la Vanoise Pralognan la Vanoise is a small family oriented ski resort in the Tarentaise valley (Savoie). It is a typical traditional Savoyard village resort located between the ski resorts of Courchevel and La Plagne in the heart of the Vanoise National Park. The ski area extends from 1400 metres to an altitude of 2355 metres and generally benefits from very good snow cover. The resort has wide range of ski runs, suitable for all skiers, from gentle green runs for beginners to mogul fields and powder snow gullies for the very experienced skiers.

Pralognan la Vanoise is also the Savoie's 4th largest site for cross-country skiing, with 26 km of runs in the forest and in the valley. There are also a number of snowshoe and Nordic walking trails.

Pralognan offers numerous sporting and relaxation activities for non-skiers. The resort has an Olympic ice rink where, at the 1992 winter Olympic Games, Dominique Dupont-Roc, Annick Mercier, Claire Niatel and all the other highly talented members of the French curling team played many memorable matches.
