Frequently asked questions

All the answers to your questions!
  • Can I fly my hobby drone?

    You own a recreational drone and want to make a film of your vacation with aerial images of the Dévoluy?
    The operation of unmanned aircraft is covered by the implementing regulation (EU) 2019/947 of May 24, 2019 on the rules and procedures applicable to the operation of unmanned aircraft. This regulation is applicable since December 31, 2020.

    Waiting for the availability of the previously mentioned training courses and until January 1, 2023, the leisure training courses available on the Fox Alpha Tango website or from the federations (FFAM and UFOLEP) allow to operate in the open subcategories A1 and A3.

    Note: remote pilots operating in these subcategories of UAVs weighing less than 250 g are not required to follow this training. Instead, they must familiarize themselves with the user manual for their aircraft provided by the manufacturer.

    It is therefore the responsibility of the owner of a remotely piloted aircraft to find out about the legislation in force before flying their drone.

    Here you will find links to the institutional sites regulating the operation of drones in the so-called open category (for the recreational drone):

    Finally, for information, the Bure plateau is a Natura2000 listed site and therefore regulated. For any flight over the plateau of Bure, a request for authorization is mandatory.

  • Where can I go with my dog?

    Following numerous incivilities, dogs are prohibited on the snow fronts. However, they are allowed on the public road in all the rest of the resorts.

    Dogs installed in a bag or equipped with a harness, are accepted in the cabins of theFontettes telemix.

    To find accommodation that accepts pets, consult our dedicated page.

    To note: from June 15 to October 15, the Drôme estives are forbidden to dogs, even if they are kept on a leash (see the map of the areas concerned). On the hiking trails bordering the Drôme, you will find reminder signs. When hiking in the mountains, always be careful when approaching herds, keep your dog on a leash and go around the herd. When a herding dog arrives, under no circumstances should you pick up your dog.
