Grenoble is a city in the south east of France which sits right at the foot of the Alps, making it the perfect gateway to the slopes for skiers. Just a short flight to Grenoble from the UK will place you less than an hour away from many excellent ski resorts – ideal for short ski breaks where time is precious.
Chamrousse is a popular choice at just 30km away from the city centre, with runs to suit all abilities. Snowboarders are also made welcome at the resort's snowboard park. You'll enjoy amazing views back down to Grenoble from this resort, as well as a beautiful forest setting and an après ski scene that won't break the bank. Non-skiers are also kept busy in Chamrousse with ice skating, paragliding, ice diving, dog sledding and snowshoe walking all offered as alternative snow activities, as well as a swimming pool and a cinema for those who want to escape the cold weather.
Just over an hour from Grenoble you'll find the popular resort of Les Deux Alpes, which offers year-round glacier skiing at a budget-friendly price. With bowling, a cinema, day spas and swimming pool there's plenty to do indoors as well as out. Children are also well catered for with their very own sledging and tobogganing areas.
The benefits of being such a short distance from the snow sport action are clear. Shorter transfers mean more time on the slopes, and those with restless kids will definitely appreciate the low fuss factor. However, Grenoble has plenty to offer for those who have a little longer to spend in this pretty Alpine area. Culture vultures will find museums galore in the city centre, and for those who fancy a hike, the surrounding Vercors Regional Natural Park is an area of stunning natural beauty. For the best views over Grenoble you should hike or take the cable car up to Bastille, a fortress overlooking the city. Just be sure to check your head for heights first!
Whether you're simply passing through Grenoble on your way to a ski resort, or you want to spend some time enjoying the city, cheap flights from Thomascook Airlines will get you there.
