Abondance - Ski Area Guide

Abondance, France

Ski Resort in Portes du Soleil, French Alps (1,000m to 2,000m)

A quiet village beneath Mount Cauffé with 10 lifts locally, but not lift-linked to the Portes du Soleil (to which the above skiing statistics relate), and it is on the pass. However it's an easy car-drive to the main lifts at Chatel. Abondance is an authentic mountain village with a 12th century abbey and cloister.
