The small village of Venterol, on the border between the Alpes de Haute Provence and the Hautes Alpes, offers a magnificent Nordic domain on the forest tracks.
Lovers of wild nature, this domain in a natural environment on the slopes of Montsérieux between 1050 m and 1600 m altitude awaits you.
The Foyer rural de Venterol manages the cross-country skiing, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing trails. When the snow arrives, you are welcomed by the volunteers of the centre, which was created in 1983 and entirely renovated a few years ago.
The ski runs
50 km of marked and groomed cross-country ski trails are available on 10 routes. All levels are offered: two easy, two medium, two difficult and four very difficult trails!
From short loops, perfect for beginners, to long-distance skiing, including a 13 km itinerary up to the summit of Montsérieux at an altitude of 1596 m and a 550 m vertical drop.
Hikes for all, with 2 loops of 4.6 km and 5.8 km snowshoeing routes.
