The Resort


La Joue du Loup

Being part of one of the largest ski areas in the southern Alps, La Joue du Loup offers beautiful winter holidays, in a traditional village resort. Known as 'the wooden resort,' chalets in this mountain village are gorgeous, with cosy interiors. Situated at the foot of the slopes, there's one ski lift to take you up the pistes, linking to the Le Dévoluy ski area, shared with neighbouring Superdévouly. This relatively small resort offers plenty of services, from shops, a French ski school, bars, restaurants and one club, just steps from the ski lift.

For a complete guide to visiting La Joue du Loup during the ski season, visit our winter destination page.


Ski Area

La Joue du Loup and the neighbouring resort of Superdévoluy make up part of one of the largest ski areas in the Southern Alps, Le Massif du Dévoluy. The area is tucked in the southwest of the Haute Alpes and offers over 100km of runs to discover. Perfectly adapted for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, it makes an ideal destination for the whole family, partly down to the easy access between runs via the seamless lift infrastructure. Altitude ranges between 1450m and 2500m, culminating at the impressive Pic de Bure summit.


Other activities

Alongside the fantastic skiing available in the area surrounding the La Joue du Loup resort, there are plenty of other activities to be enjoyed throughout the winter season. Explore the mountains further with snowshoe walking and snow kiting, or visit the frozen waterfalls and try ice climbing. For children, there is tobogganing, and the whole family can join in with dog sledding and snowmobiling.
