Located in the heart of Val Ferret, at 1’600 meters above sea level, La Fouly is the last village of the region to be inhabited throughout the year. This ski resort in the Valais is situated at the foot of mont Dolent (3’820 meters) and the Tour Noir (3’826 meters), two summits of the massif du Mont-Blanc. Needless to say that the landscape is of any beauty!
The ski area of la Fouly extends between the village of La Fouly, 1’600 m, and Arpalle at 2’200 m altitude. It includes 20 km of slopes : 10 groomed trails, including 4 blue runs, 2 red runs and 4 black runs, and four routes to ski off-piste. You can mount with seal skin along mountain passes or peaks, and then descend on the expanses of powdery, waiting for you. The Swiss Ski School is the exemption of the individual or group courses, for all levels. The cross-country skiing fans will be able to discover the sumptuous landscapes of the region via two tracks through the wilderness, along the Dranse de Ferret, and at the foot of impressive mountains : the track Nicolas, long of 10 km, and the track Luc, long of 5 km. Some evenings in the week, from 19:00 to 21:00, you can practice skiing or sledding in the evening on the floodlit track of the Small Combe.
Family resort enjoying a privileged location, La Fouly is a great place for all those who wish to discover beautiful mountain scenery without being experienced hikers. Several small walks, lasting from 30 minutes to two hours, are offered. You can also do longer rides, skis (Great Him, Petit/Grand Col Ferret, Dotze, Chantonnet) or snowshoes.
A stay in the winter sports in La Fouly can also be a wonderful opportunity to discover the cultural heritage and the culinary traditions of the region. If you are between the 26 December and the Day of the Kings, take a trip to the nearby village of Arlaches: the old village oven is switched on 24 hours on 24, and each family comes there to bake her bread for the period of time that is allocated to them. The rye bread is traditionally the bread of the region. You can also taste the delicious PDO cheeses of the region (raclette, tomme d'abondance), the regional specialties and the wines of the Valais in the restaurants of the village.
There are a few hotels and inns with restaurants within the resort of la Fouly, rental cottages or rustic cabins in the mountains. The station, however, remains relatively modest, and the supply of accommodation is with the endorsement. So please do not book and do not wait until the last minute to avoid inconvenience!
