The famous Megavalanche takes place in July every year – starting at the top of Pic Blanc in snow and cycling a huge descent into Sarenne gorge. Walkers have Les Ecrins national park and wonderful, signposted walking from the door, or lovely ridge walks between the gondolas. Many wonderful mountain restaurants are also open in summer.  The chalet sleeps 10 people in four bedrooms and there's a swimming pool, hammam and sauna in the chalet development to rest weary legs. The owner Alison is flexible about check-in during summer months.
