La Toussuire is about 3 km from Le Corbier and is easy to get from one to the other. La Toussuire offers a charming atmosphere, with its low buildings that are spread out to give a village feel, even though it is larger than Le Corbier. Except for some low apartment blocks the majority of this resort is made up of chalets. The accommodations here are situated almost directly on the piste. The centre of the village consists of a main street with shops, the cinema and several bars and restaurants. La Toussuire is situated at an altitude of 1800 meters and has some spectacular views. This charming village is a must for families with children.
The vast resort of Les Sybelles is gaining in popularity with skiers and snowboarders. The excellent variety of options provided in this resort with 310 km (193 ml) of pistes justify its popularity.
The ski area consists of the villages of Le Corbier, St. Jean d'Arves, Les Bottières, La Toussuire, St. Sorlin d'Arves and St. Colomban des Villards. This large and diverse area has plenty of pistes for novices as well as advanced skiers and snowboarders. For the very advanced skiers and snowboarders there are plenty of black piste descents and the real fanatics can conquer the off piste trails! However we strongly advise you to do this in the company of an experienced guide.
The most challenging descents can be found in the resort of St. Sorlin d'Arves. Snowboarders and freestyle skiers can head for the snow parks in le Corbier and La Toussuire. The lift pass for the entire area is included in the price of the holiday.
Attention: the 6-day skipass Les Sybelles is included. If you book before 1st of October 2013, you will get the 7th day for free.
