News from the lake shore!


We've all been waiting impatiently for Lac de Serre-Ponçon to fill up, making this water sports destination the emerald-blue jewel of the Southern Alps. So what's the latest?

In this exceptional year of high snow levels, the Serre-Ponçon reservoir is being carefully managed by its concession holder, EDF. The aim is to limit the risk of flooding by maintaining a sufficiently high "trough" to absorb the snowmelt with a minimum of safety.

Paradoxically, the lake's low level for the season guarantees a full lake for the summer period.

Once again, the little Alpine sea will meet the many and varied expectations of its visitors from near and far. :)
