Our base in Saint Pierre dels Forcats (Altitude 1550m) is in an area well known by the French as having the highest sunshine record in the whole of France. It is high enough that in the winter it has an enviable snow record with great powder and clear cold days giving great skiing conditions. It is also at an altitude high enough in the summer so that even with all that amazing sunshine it’s not too hot to ride!
