Installing snow cannons at ski resort Drouzin le Mont

Installing snow cannons at ski resort Drouzin le Mont

As you know Drouzin le Mont is a family friendly ski resort between Morzine and Chatel, Hautes Savoie, and only an hours drive from Geneva. What you probably won’t know is that there are eight new snow cannons installed ready for the coming winter season.

These new snow cannons at Drouzin le Mont mean that the snow creating capabilities at the resort have been doubled, all the main runs and nursery area will be maintained in better condition and piste closures will be significantly reduced during periods of low snow fall. This all adds to what was already a super resort for families and beginners as well as those more experienced skier looking for more relaxed un-crowded slopes.

The snow cannons are on the lower section of Chervreuil (red run), on Frasse (blue run) and the connecting run from the bottom of the Telesiege Drouzin to the top of Teleski La Frasse. These are left of the nursery area that you overlook from the apartments and chalets.
