Although this tunnel between Grenoble, Turin and local resorts has been closed, our affected ski transfers will continue via a different route.
Update, May 2016: With the input of €14.6 million, work has begun digging the new Tunnel du Chambon which is planned to open in December for the winter season 2016-17. Find out more here: Tunnel du Chambon re-opening
The Tunnel du Chambon was part of the main road, or Route National, between Grenoble and Briancon / Serre Chevalier, as well as between Turin and Les Deux Alpes / Alpe d’Huez, and this road has now been closed indefinitely due to a land slide.
ATC’s Private Transfers from Grenoble and Lyon to the Serre Chevalier area will continue via the Tunnel Du Frejus. Please check our new prices for these routes and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
The potential land slide, above the Lac du Chambon, was a known threat since before this year’s Tour de France – affecting part of the route of the famous bike race – and eventually happened in July 2015.
