The altitude of the station which of course plays a major role; the higher it is, the more the precipitation is in the form of snow and not rain, and the less the cast is pronounced.

New: the snow network grows on the bottom of the Santons track until the snow front, for a guaranteed return ski to the feet every day of the season. The natural snowfalls are relayed by the regular interventions of the Atelier de Neige, which is one of the most efficient in Europe.
