Saint Jean d'Aulps ski holidays Skiing & snowboarding in Saint Jean d'Aulps - Portes du Soleil
Skiing in Saint Jean d'Aulps - a traditional, unspoilt, family resort in the Portes du Soleil ski area, Saint Jean d'Aulps offers skiers the grandiose backdrop of "le Roc d'Enfer" down to la Chèvrerie with great views of Lake Geneva, the Dents du Midi and Mont Blanc.
The ski resort itself is quite small with a limited number of runs but that adds to its charm and friendliness. However, don't be fooled by the local skiing stats - its link to the vast Portes du Soleil system gives skiers of all abilities plenty to get their teeth into.
The apres-ski is informal and relaxed with a few good bars in the centre for those that prefer a livelier atmosphere. The other plus point about Saint Jean d'Aulps is that it's a compact resort and you can reach most places on foot.
