Sun, ski and snow in Le Corbier
Text: Alex Beveridge
Whether you’re a blue run beginner or you’ve got some skills on the slopes, there are many factors involved in making a skiing holiday sensational. If you’re setting foot on the snow this season, Le Corbier – found in the heart of Les Sybelles, France’s fourth largest ski area – boasts 310 kilometres of snow-covered slopes for all levels, as well as a wide range of fun, family-friendly activities.
What makes Le Corbier so special is not only its breathtaking panoramic views, but its accessibility, with pedestrian circuits that can take you all over the resort. As a Famille Plus ski station, there are countless options available for both younger and older guests. More of a happy hiker than a seasoned skier? Not to worry! Numerous nature activities are on offer, including snowshoe trails or dogsled riding.
If you’re not worn out after a day of snowmobile riding or toboggan racing, the Kids’ Riders Cup (for ages three to five), hosted on 11 March, is certainly something to catch if you’re in the area. The first of its kind, the competition will welcome participants to race on specially adapted bikes (fit with skis), alternating between flat runs and small jumps.
Ready for some rest and relaxation? Well, once you’ve left the little ones at Club Cosmos kids club, take a dip in the heated outdoor pool, de-stress in the sauna or enjoy an après-ski aperitif on the terrace overlooking the slopes.
When it comes to accommodation, why not snuggle up by the fire at the luxurious 15-bed Chalet Thoya and make the most of the prestigious packages it has on offer? The latest addition to Le Corbier will be the Étoile des Sybelles apart-hotel, opening December 2020. Constructed using local suppliers and renewable resources, you’ll be able to rest easy in one of its 99 eco-friendly apartments knowing you’re protecting the planet.
