France a year from now in the Spring of 2010. Im curious to know what ski resort is the best for day trips from Grenoble. Also, what sort of transportation is there from Grenoble to the ski resorts? Any affordable options? train, bus?
Resorts in the Vercors, the Chartreuse or the Oisan are real close (less than 1 hour, sometimes half an hour), with plenty of cheap buses options.
See Chamrousse, les 7 Laux...
And what WTFH said. Les 2 Alpes and l'alpe d'Huez are huge.

(And La grave or Chamonix are fine for a day trip too.)
if you get there, check a map of a 50mile radius and you'll have plenty to ski, that's not the thing you need to worry about when coming over
plenty of busses and probably your fellow students will ski aswell
