Front de neige de Villard de Lans
Wild and sporty, the Villard-de-Lans resort unveils its natural charms. The mountain wins you over. The slogan is well known to everyone but is particularly well suited to Villard-de-Lans. Just an hour's drive from your Première Classe Grenoble hotel, it has all the features that mountain lovers are looking for: optimal air quality, safe and family leisure facilities, and above all, more than 76 miles of slopes which make it the largest ski area in the Vercors Massif. In order to provide a variety of leisure activities, the resort has created a whole range of sporting activities, on land and in the air: cross-country skiing, speed riding, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, air boarding etc. If you're an adventurer, you're even invited to try your hand at climbing a 98 ft ice fall which is unique in France. But Villard-de-Lans also has the ability to captivate you in the summer. It is a wild area blessed with an exceptional wealth of living things: 150 species of birds, 72 species of mammals and 1,800 plant species, 85 of which are protected. There's lots to discover along the approximately 1,864 miles of trails. Armed with binoculars and a good pair of shoes, on foot or on a mountain bike, you shouldn't be surprised to come face to face with an ibex roaming freely in the wild.
