Isère is a department in the Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes region in south-eastern France. It extends from the banks of the River Rhône to the summits of the French Alps. The region is easily accessible from Grenoble Alpes Isère airport, including numerous flights from London and other major cities in the UK. In winter, the resorts in the Vercors region, the major ski areas of Alpe d’Huez and Les 2 Alpes in Oisans or the resorts in Belledonne will delight fans of mountain holidays. Home to Nordic skiing, Alpine skiing on the major summits and glaciers, snow-boarding, freeriding, snow shoeing and dog-sledding. The second mountain range, the massif of Belledonne offers 250km of slopes with an altitude difference up to 1200m. With state-of-the-art lifts, skiers are transported speedily to discover stunning panoramic views. Les 7 Laux offers easily accessible off-piste areas, as well as a large network of marked pistes, including the famous ‘Casserousse’ in Chamrousse, where French sport legend Jean-Claude Killy won the Olympic gold medal in 1968.

Although Vercors is mainly known for cross country skiing, the landscape is different to Oisans or Belledonne: skiers can go through forests with much steeper and craggier terrain available. The slopes are less challenging than in Oisans, yet good skiers can still find some serious black slopes, such as the ‘Carole Montillet’ piste (former ski champion) in Villard-de-Lans / Corrençon-en- Vercors, which is the main alpine resort in Vercors with 125km of runs.
