It should be noted that the town of Villard de Lans has looked very closely at the visitor infrastructure over the past couple of years.
There are now regular buses to and from Grenoble and they run into the night which they did not used to do. On our last visit in January there were more taxis running around than ever before and the tourist office is modern, helpful and informative.
Property is available for rent in the tourist office and even if you turn up on the off chance they will do everything they can to find accommodation.
More new lifts, snow cannon and fresh runs have made this an even better resort.
It is really beautiful and being situated in a National Park means that this is likely to remain the stunning location it is.
