A MOUNTAIN OF SERVICES IN THE SKI AREA
TWO OPTIONS FOR YOUR DEPARTURE ON THE SLOPES
The practical option is from Les Carroz 1200 – via the Kédeuze cable car when you’re staying in the heart of the village, and your children are having ski lessons.
The quick option is from Les Carroz 1500 – via the Molliets and Tête des Saix chairlifts when you want a direct ascent to Tête des Saix, the highest point in the Les Carroz area and the crossroads with the other Grand Massif resorts. This second feed-in point to the ski area is located 10 minutes from the village centre. A free car park with around 500 spaces is available.
TO EACH THEIR OWN SLOPE TO FINISH THE DAY’S SKIING
Treat yourself to a lovely return on skis with a view over the snow-covered village and, among the chalets on the red Timalets run, the emblematic slope of Les Carroz.
Apprentice skiers also have the right to return on skis in an easier version via the blue Combe run that winds through the fir trees.
MAKE SKIING EASY FOR YOURSELF!
Leave your car at rest during your ski holiday thanks to the free, convenient shuttle service. The ski buses run from your accommodation to the start of the ski runs (Kédeuze cable car). All the resort’s hamlets and residential areas are served, so all you have to do is find the stop nearest to you!
Several lines to get you around:
A: Pré du bois > Tourist Office > Cable Car
BC: La Frasse > Araches > Le Laÿs – Le Bry – Les Feux – Cable Car
D: Cable Car > Les Genièvres > Tourist Office > Les Servages
All these lines pass through the town centre – a bus stop located at the Tourist Office.
