Snowboard fun for everyone! Great Ski area for beginners as well as pros with panoramic views and best snow - on and off-piste.

Starting point is the little tourist-village where you can rent apartments for 2 up to 10 persons ("Le Domaine de l'Aselle") via SnowTrex (www.snowtrex.us).The ski lift starts right at the center of the village (3-7min walking, depending on where your apartment is located) and lifts you up to 2.250m at the top of the mountain. From there you have several prepared tracks down to 23 different lifts. If you're interested in off-piste snowboarding or skiing, then you're at the right place. Between the prepared tracks are several forest areas to explore with deep powder for a maximum of fun.There are also several Snow- and Funparks as well as Ski-Cross tracks and a speed track available.

Besides snowboarding they have multiple routes for Snowshoeing, Ski-Touring, Hiking or even an area to ride snowmobiles. And if you're done with all that exploring and adventure you can chill out in the pool area with jacuzzi and sauna (but they are often way too crowded).

Everything you need such as a Supermarket, Restaurant and Café is accessible by foot within a few minutes.

Approach by car:
Lyon is approximately 145 kilometers from the ski resort. Follow the A48 motorway to Grenoble and then drive on the D5 to Brié-et-Angonnes. From there on the D111 up to Chamrousse.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.

While most people go snowshoeing near the Bear Lake or Glacier Gorge area in RMNP, Wild Basin is a much less trafficked option.
