Ski Holidays in Chamrousse
It's location perched up on the plateau means the views are superb from resort and from the slopes but Chamrousse is a great option for a ski holiday since it is such a short transfer from Grenoble airport. Previously the resort was only used by local skiers and weekend skiers from nearby Grenoble and Lyon, but it has recently started to become known on the British market - for good reasons.
Skiing & Boarding in Chamrousse
The resort is split into 3 different areas - Le Recoin which is situated at 1650m , Chamrousse 1700 and Chamrousse 1750 - all of which feed into the same ski area. The top of the ski area is the Croix de Chamrousse which is at 2250m from where you have a panoramic view of the valley of Grenoble.
The resort is ideal for beginners and improvers since it has generously wide pistes allowing you to develop your skills on the 100km of pistes.
For those of you keen on cross country, there are 37km of trails in the Arselle area as well.
Accommodation in Chamrousse

The Balcoins de Recoin also has an excellent spa area so, although costing a bit more, it is highly recommended by us.
