biggest chance for snow in the Ardennes is between
end December and mid February. On
average there are 30 snow days per year.
15 kms of the chalet you find a few slopes (alpine
and cross country). You don't need snow chains
unless there's more than 50 cms snow.
best known ski-slopes are :
de Fraiture (foto - 15 mins. from the
chalet). E25 exit La Roche, 300 meters from
de Wanne (25 mins from the chalet)
country: near Gouvy, Samrée,...
there's snow, it gets quite busy at the slopes. In
the morning you'll lose most time at the rental
department for shoes and skis as for most people
this is a one day trip and they don't have their
own equipment. If you do have your own material
this will safe you a lot of time!
price per day: €25. Ski equipment €15.
lifts are quite old but they work! For those who
want to avoid queing we have one tip: instead of
queing, place yourself alongside the lift and grab
one of the bars from someone who made an attempt
but fell off (there's quite a lot of them so you
don't have to wait for too long).
