Espace Villard Corrençon is a popular ski area located close to Grenoble. The resort is a combination of two separate villages: Villard de Lans and Corrençon en Vercors, which together provide a charming and authentic alpine experience.
It's proximity to Grenoble makes it a favourite with locals and it gets busy on weekends due to the quick commute. Villard de Lans, one of the oldest ski resorts in France, has a rich history dating back to the late 19th century. It started as a traditional mountain village and has evolved into a well-established ski destination. In contrast, Corrençon en Vercors is a smaller and quieter village with a more relaxed atmosphere.
The ski area of Espace Villard Corrençon is easily accessible from both villages. However, it's worth noting that all the skiing is below 2000m, with majority above 1500m it should maintain relatively good conditions, but the return runs and beginners areas below are likely to be impacted by low snow seasons or high temperatures at the beginning and end of the season.
The après-ski scene in Villard de Lans and Corrençon en Vercors is decent, with a variety of bars, restaurants, and cafes but doesn't match the experience of larger resorts.
Espace Villard Corrençon is well-suited for a beginner / intermediate cust skier, it's likely that advanced skiers could tire of the area relatively quickly due to the small size, but there's a decent selection of red runs across the resort.
