There is a free shuttle bus every 15 minutes to the resort centre (1km) from the front of the residence, otherwise it is only a 5-10 minute walk.
Built in typical mountain style with extensive use of wood and stone, Les Chalets du Galibier is composed of 2 residences of five large chalets each. They comprise fully equipped apartments of a good standard ranging from studios to spacious two bedroom alcove apartments sleeping up to 8 people. Each chalet has its own ski lockers and lift. Please note that the new section called ‘Chalets du Galibier II’ is 200m further from the lifts.

Equipment hire was so straightford and really friendly service and we were in and out within about 7 minutes! We collected our lift passes without the need to queue and right across from the chalet - about 3 minutes in total. And we confirmed all our lessons and arrange some for my husband in about 4 minutes. Very impressed to achieved all that in the space of 14 minutes! In the passed this has taken us half a day. Thank youMrs K ( 05 Apr 14 )
