SNO-man says

The latest great skiing area, located close to Grenoble, at the meeting point of two massifs, Oisans and South Dauphiné. This is a fast growing resort with brand new pistes ( the ski area has doubled in size in a few years), offering real mountain skiing with a link to Saint Honoré 1500. Both are charming and atmospheric mountain villages.
