Pra Loup stands out as a prominent ski destination in the Southern Alps, renowned for its welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, as well as its efficient lift systems. Established in 1961, the resort earned its name from the former inhabitants of this remarkable locale: the mountain wolves. Pra Loup encompasses two villages, Molanes at 1500 meters (Pra Loup 1500) and the larger Pra Loup 1600 meters. The latter boasts convenient proximity to most of the shops, cafés, and bars, all easily accessible from the slopes. This resort places a strong emphasis on catering to families and boasts an outstanding lift network that connects seamlessly to La Foux d'Allos in the expansive 'La Liberté de l'Espace' ski area. Particularly notable is the Pra Loup gondola, which proves ideal for both snowboarders and beginners. For reliable snow conditions, the gentle green clappe run descending from the gondola is equipped with permanent snowmaking cannons, ensuring consistent snow cover during the early and late parts of the season. Intermediate skiers will find plenty of opportunities to explore, with numerous blue and red runs easily accessible throughout the area. Aspiring skiers will relish the resort's long, wide-open slopes and minimal lift queues, enabling uninterrupted skiing and the chance to cover substantial distances.
