The Lac Blanc ski area located near the Col du Bonhomme is the 3e Massif des Vosges station. With its several kilometers of slopes, this ski resort offers a beautiful view of the region’s landscapes and has slopes for all levels as well as a variety of activities.

The Lac Blanc resort (the 3e station of the Massif des Vosges in terms of abundance) located near the Col du Bonhomme has created a whole range of activities and entertainment for you. And there is enough to motivate you to put on skis or snowshoes, depending on whether you want, for a weekend, to believe that you are in the world of the Far North, to take yourself for the star of trip, or simply taste the beautiful slopes of the balloons. Four marked trails for snowshoeing, 67 km of cross-country ski trails, 14 km of downhill, boardercross, slopestyle ski trails… This is a resort for all ages and all tastes!

Feverish on your lattes or want to perfect your style? No problem, ski and snowboard schools are there with their instructors to teach you technique and have fun on the slopes. A welcoming resort where nothing is lacking, especially to satisfy appetites whetted by fresh air and skiing!

And because the days are short in winter, the station puts your hat on the stars at night by playing extra hours until 10 pm To get there, nothing could be simpler: snow tires or chains on the tires , it is a stone’s throw from the pass.

Our advice: if you’re new to alpine skiing or practicing cross-country skiing, it’s easier to get to the resort directly at altitude 1,200. There, you can see all the green alpine slopes as well as the entire Nordic domain.
