Pralong Nordic skiing area: perfect for lovers of rugged beauty
Nestled in an intimate setting, Pralong is one of the lesser-known Nordic skiing areas. And yet, lovers of cross-country skiing are sure to be captivated by this vast, snow-covered plateau, the rugged beauty of the landscape, the ambient calm, and the picturesque charm of the trail between chalets, forests and the river. Landscapes are preserved amid breath-taking natural surroundings, while its location at the bottom of the valley lends itself wonderfully to cross-country skiing in excellent snow conditions.
The Nordic skiing area is perfectly maintained with trails for beginners and skating runs for cross-country skiers with high expectations. The trail is designed around the hamlet of Pralong and overlooks the Grande Dixence Dam. It’s a 6km-long, fairly flat ride. Follow the trail along the edges of snow-capped fir and larch forests, or along the Dixence river to experience Nordic pleasures...
