In winter: Go to the 3 Valleys ski resort
The largest ski area in the world –cable car connects you directly from Orelle to Val Thorens.
For family skiing, you also have easy access to La Norma, Val Frejus-Valmorel and Valloire.
There are also opportunities for dog sleighing and snowshoeing.
In summer: The mythical mountain passes
Summer offers fantastic cycling routes (the passes of Galibier, Télégraphe), or hiking in the mountains (Mont Thabor 3 178m, les aiguilles d'Arve 3514m, Mont Cenis) and the Park de la Vanoise– awild, natural place only inhabited by wild flora and fauna.
It’s a stay in the mountains with a wide range of activities and also an hour from Turin’s shopping experience and museums.
Do you know the secret spot of the 3 VALLEES?
It is the best kept secret but not for long.
Since December 4th 2021 the Hameau d'Orelle reveals its secret and its technological prowess with its new Orelle/Cime Caron section.
Mythical summit perched at 3200m, accessible from the hamlet of Orelle with the new Orelle-Cime Caron section
It is very simple, from the hamlet of Villard, it takes 12 minutes to reach the hamlet of Orelle by car.
On the spot you will find car parks giving you direct access to the cable car.
You will also find ski hire, ski passes and ski racks to leave your skis before you reach the Grange.
No more carrying your skis to the car.
To make your reservations online you can consult : www.orelle.net
For ski rack rentals: orelle.navic.fr
With the gondola you can reach Plan Bouchet in 10 minutes and then head for the cime Caron with the new section. You don't have to walk or get out, you just change gondola.
The spectacle that awaits you will leave you speechless.
Immaculate white as far as the eye can see.
You will feel very small in front of this XXL panorama while having the sensation to be on the roof of the world.
But be careful, you'll have to go back...
You will have to take the black track of the Combe de Rosaël, and you will not forget it as the sensations are so strong. I won't hide the fact that it is better to have a good level of skiing and a good physical condition.
