Establishment
“La Grande Terche / Espace Roc d’Enfer (10min), this is the ski area at St Jean d’Aulps. It is covered by the Portes du Soleil pass but not linked. Good for its free parking and cheaper skiing (if you buy a local area pass), plus the nursery slope is one of the best in the area, safe and with a restaurant at the bottom, so once a young skier is progressing they can be left to ski on their own. There is also a good circuit that takes about 1h30 to ski. There is a bus from Tourist Information in St Jean d’Aulps.”
