Sancy offers more than 100 kilometres of pistes between the linked resorts of Le Mont Dore and Super Besse and the family-friendly Chasterix-Sancy. The area's ancient volcanos and worn hills also make it a fine destination for gentle activities like snow-shoeing.

Southampton airport operates regular flights to the Clermont-Ferrand Aulnat airport, which is about a 25-minute drive from the resort.
