The closest resorts are only thirty minutes from Grenoble, making them the easiest to reach in the Alps of Isère and the French Alps.
Here you can also enjoy lakes, prairies... and over 1200 m of elevation allowing great ski rides, on or off piste (Les 7 Laux resort for example has gained a reputation for its safe offpiste domain). Another speciality is night skiing (Chamrousse, Le Collet d'Allevard). How about sliding down the hill with Grenoble city lights at your feet? And if the mountain activities have been too harsh on your body, the massif of Belledonne is also home to two famous thermal springs: Allevard-les-Bains and Uriage-les-Bains.
