We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

Overview

The Besse Super-Besse ski resort is made up of two villages each with its own little personality: The medieval village of Besse has a rich architectural and historical past. Built at 1050 metres, it is a picturesque and lively town where day to day life takes place at the heart of the friendly, consistently festive atmosphere. The true ski resort, Super-Besse is dynamic and vibrant. Super-Besse offers skiing between 1300 and 1850 metres in altitude. The resort is ideal for sporting holidays amongst friends or with the family. The resort appeals to both alpine ski fans as well as the ‘nu-Skool' winter sports enthusiasts. Between the two villages of Besse and Super-Besse the Lake Pavin has an array of hiking trails and cross-country ski trails for those who want to enjoy the amazing panoramas of the Sancy region. The warmth and welcome of the local families is a long time tradition within various towns of the Massif du Sancy. In Besse or Super-Besse there are family activities for all. Spas and fitness centres for all ages, family walks, and cultural visits are a plenty! A modern resort, certified "Famille plus montagne (Families and Mountains)," Besse Super Besse allows anyone to make the most of what is on offer in the day, whether it be sporting or cultural and in the evening time to share some great moments between friends or family in the evening in the array of charming restaurants... In Besse Super Besse visitors can experience the real mountain culture.
