Chamrousse - an Olympic ski resort

The picturesque village and ski resort of Chamrousse was the 1966 venue for the Winter Olympics. The resort is small and friendly, well suited to family parties and has around 100 kilometres of on piste skiing for all abilities of skiers. In spite of its Olympic fame, the resort is not well known to visitors from the UK, and is relatively uncrowded, even in high season.

Picturesque Alpine village

Chamrousse is set in spectacular surroundings, making an authentic and idyllic backdrop to its facilities. Being set at high altitude (1,750 metres), the resort's pistes are well supplied with snow throughout a long season. The village itself is made up of fairly modern buildings, but which blend sympathetically and harmoniously with the surroundings. And the views over the Grenoble valley are delightful.

Shops and après ski in Chamrousse

Chamrousse is just a small resort, but it offers everything that you are likely to need. There are a number of shops selling groceries and basic provisions plus health services and ski hire shops. Although the resort is more family oriented than angled towards extreme party goers, there are plenty of friendly bars and good restaurants where a low key après ski can be enjoyed.

Tuesday is market day

Chamrousse has a cinema and a weekly Tuesday market for those who enjoy such leisurely pursuits. The village also has a spa centre where you can soothe those muscles that have worked too hard on the slopes.

Ski facilities on offer

With around 100 kilometres of pistes catering for all levels of skiers from beginners to experts, Chamrousse has something to please everyone. The skiing is made up of the two ski areas of Recoin and Rocher Béranger and offers eight green runs, sixteen blue runs, sixteen red runs and six black runs. The resort is also well supplied with lifts.

Visit the tree top adventure park

If you feel like a change from skiing, there are plenty of other things to do from a base in Chamrousse. The outdoor skating rink provides lots of fun for kids as well as adults, while other activities include snow mobiling, ice driving and paragliding. Even dog sledding may be on the agenda if you fancy trying something different. And, if you've got youngsters in tow, why not take them along to the tree top adventure park? It's bound to be a hit!

Explore the Chamrousse area

The department of Isère has some beautiful scenery, and it's well worth taking a day away from the pistes to enjoy a look around the area. If you're feeling adventurous, you can take an excursion to see a fabulous ice waterfall near to Chamrousse, aided by an expert guide. The city of Grenoble is a "must visit".

Here, as well as taking in the clear air and relaxing amid fresh green mountain pastures, it's possible to discover mysterious caves and grottoes.
