Le Boréon

Winter sports & wolves in the Mercantour

Situated at between 1500-1800m/4921-5095ft up in the Mercantour above St-Martin-Vésubie le Boréon is a large Nordic Skiing centre. Named after its stream (a tributary of the Vésubie) it incorporates the Alpha Loup Wolf Centre.

Snowshoe Tracks

Above all, there are several marked trails for ski touring and snowshoe tracks running through the forest and the amazing Mercantour landscape.

In summer le Boréon is the starting point for forest walks leading up to the tops and the mountain lakes. You can also reach the nearby Vacherie du Boréon by car.
