Instead of the large Oisans resorts, some people prefer a smaller, family-oriented skiing area, more affordable and human-sized, such as Col d’Ornon!
Whatever the season, Col d’Ornon offers visitors a full range of outdoor activities just one hour from Grenoble, with one of the more unusual activities being the vast orienteering area, featuring a number of varied, marked courses.
The cross-country skiing centre rents out all the equipment necessary to enjoy the 21 km of varied trails through alder forests and clearings, with the trails groomed for both classic and skate skiing.
The 7 waymarked snowshoeing trails are perfect for exploring the forest at your own pace or for joining up with the downhill and cross-country skiing site whilst admiring the surrounding Oisans mountains.
