Grotte de glace

The new cave will have 30 sculptures in snow or crystal ice on the theme of the Caribou, a theme that will change every year because in Spring, nature inexorably reclaims its rights and melts this ephemeral masterpiece.

Each year, 8 sculptors from all over Europe will spend a week developing their talents in the meandering cave to the delight of visitors. The interior of the cave is made up of a network of about 100 metres of galleries where many sculptures will be displayed.

Accessible via the Chabrières hybrid lift: (with a ski or pedestrian pass) during lift opening hours.
