Col du Glandon Ski

Ski Areas > Northern Alps > Belledonne > Col du Glandon

The col du Glandon is closed in the winter from the Rivier d'Allemont on the south side and St Columban des Villards to the north (Savoie / Maurienne). The road generally opens in mid-May on the south side and a week later to the north.

Chalets de Rieu Claret

Due to the east aspect of these slopes it is usually necessary to carry skis to around 1900/1950 meters, around 15 minutes walk from the car park.

Col du Glandon

The Glandon road pass between the Isère and Savoie was opened in 1898 although the route has been used by travellers since pre-Roman times. The village of Vaujany lower down the valley witnesses this use. The name stems from Via-Janus, the road of Janus who was the Roman god of gateways.
