Resort Description

Chamrousse is the cradle of alpline skiing where the first descents date back to 1878. In 1968, Chamrousse hosted the Winter Olympics and these runs still exist today.

Chamrousse is a wonderful family resort and is the French Alps best-kept secret! It is actually the closest resort to Grenoble - much easier to get to compared to those you may have heard a little bit more about in the past. Indeed, it's only 30 minutes from Grenoble city centre by car. Why spend extra time travelling from the airport to one of those other resorts, when you could be on the slopes enjoying the fun?

It is also one of the best value-for-money resorts around. Eating out and drinking in Chamrousse is a lot cheaper than most of the other Alps resorts, meaning going on a ski trip doesn't have to break the bank.

The resort caters for skiers and snowboarders alike, all levels of ability and age groups will find plenty to do here. There are three interconnecting areas to enjoy - Chamrousse 1650, Chamrousse 1750 and Chamrousse 1700. You can ski from one to the other easily, on the same ski pass, or take the regular loop buses, which take about 7mins to get from one to the other. There are:

- 90km of pistes
- 16 ski lifts
- 40ha snow-covered area
- 41 slopes including 8 green, 14 blue, 13 red and 6 black
- Snowpark
- Kidpark
- Speed skiing area
- Arva park
