Biathlon is a fun alternative to classic cross-country skiing. It combines cross-country skiing with rifle shooting (laser or pellet, depending on age), both standing and prone. It is a complete activity that combines endurance, concentration and precision… perfect for challenges with friends or family!
Considered to be one of the most beautiful in Haute-Savoie, the Nordic area of the Abondance Valley stretches along the Dranse River over two resorts: La Chapelle d’Abondance and Châtel. A real life-size playground, it offers more than 25 km of trails and eight Nordic itineraries located between 1,000 and 1,500 m of altitude, including a specially lit loop for cross-country skiers who enjoy night outings. Private and group lessons allow you to learn different techniques (alternating step, skating).
Biathlon, nordic park, orienteering skiing and sledging track are another way to enjoy this space.
