Les Sybelles, Savoie, Rhone Alps

Get to know the resort

Reasons to visit

Located on the border of Isere and Haute Alps in the Savoie area of the French Alps, Les Sybelles is the fourth largest ski domain in France offering 310km of linked skiing ranging in altitude from 1100m - 2620m and is the home base to Jean Pierre Vidal, the Gold medal winner of the downhill slalom in the 2002 winter olympics in Salt Lake City.

Set within the Maurienne Valley, also home to the biggest cycle area in the world, it has also been a place of attraction for winter sports enthusiasts for many years. Made up of six pretty villages that include St Sorlin d'Arves, Le Corbier, La Toussuire, St Jean d'Arves, Les Bottieres and St Colomban des Villards, Les Sybelles can boast it is bigger than the Espace Killy with the likes of Val d'Isere and Tignes. A huge Mecca it provides skiing for all levels including those seeking off piste experiiences.

With skiing nearly all above the treeline making the area snow sure, resorts like La Toussuire are found at an elevation of 1800m, while St Sorlin d'Arves at 1600m. Thanks to the height of the skiing, the season is long and like the 3 Valleys, runs from December to April.

Sunny slopes, phenomenal panoramic views and the Family Plus Award make this a fantastic destination for your skiing. With strategically positioned lifts and long interconnecting slopes make it simple to get round the ski domain without the need to remove your skis.

Les Sybelles with each of its village centres pedestrianised is very popular with families, yet offers challenging skiing like the Bartavelle slope which begins at La Balme at 2240 along with fantastic off piste skiing with local guides.

With the ski area created in 2003 and operating under one ski pass, since then there have been major improvements in lifts and slopes with over €110 million spent in the last few years. Still relatively quiet with few queues, this is all about to change in the coming years thanks to the announcement that Les Sybelles wants to link with the newly created Alpe d'Huez - Les Deux Alps (2022) ski domain vial the resort of St Sorlin d'Arves in 2025 to create the worlds largest connected ski domain with over 800km of skiing.  

With the airports of Geneva, Lyon, Turin, and Grenoble all 2 hours away and Chambery only 1 hour from the resorts, the Altibus service also runs from Geneva, Lyon and Chambery getting owners of their own chalets or apartments as well as visitors to the area smoothly. For those arriving by train to St Jean de Maurienne, the Trans Alpes bus service is in operation. These efficient transport connections are already in place to meet the demand of increased numbers once the connections are made.
