Super Devoluy, or Super D if you prefer, styles itself as the 'doorstep skiing resort' with ski-in/ski-out accommodation and super-fast access to the slopes from all the villages' accommodations. The resort was developed from the 1960s, and some of the architecture is in the giant blocks that were the height of fashion back then. That's not true of the whole resort though, and you will find beautiful chalet-style places to stay. The resort is compact, built with families in mind and very practical with wonderful surroundings. The skiing is linked by lift to La Joue du Loup making up to 100km of varied runs available between 1500 and 2500 metres. Fantastic off-piste and boarding are other pluses. Around 30 neighbouring villages and hamlets offer easily accessible dining and other facilities in more traditional surroundings.
Super D is a purpose-built ski resort. What it loses in Alpine charm is more than made up for with great modern facilities built with family holidays in mind. The surroundings are first rate with some stunning views from the resort taking in the surrounding peaks, which scrape the sky at around 3000m. It is good value and friendly, and very strong on activities for kids, families and teens.
