Winter sports in the Auvergne
The Auvergne is also a great place to be in wintertime. Our accommodation in Le Mont-Dore is in winter an excellent starting point. Just think of skiing on a volcano, cross country skiing, snowshoeing or sledging on runs specially prepared for sledging.
Les Camélias has a heated storage room for winter sport equipment. There are several places in Le Mont-Dore where skies, cross country materials and raquettes (for snowshoeing) can be hired.
During wintertime many activities are put on, from 10 up to 17 February 2018 the Sancy Snow Jazz Festival will take place.
In January the Trail Hivernal du Sancy is being organised; 20 or 30 km of running over snow covered trails. Les Camélias is an official partner of this competition.
