Chamrousse: What to do when you get there ?

Discover what to do in Chamrousse! Go to one of the oldest ski resorts in France: Chamrousse. Since its creation, the Isère village has constantly had to reinvent itself in order to differentiate itself, for this Chamrousse has put forward the activities available in the resort throughout the year!

Located 15km from Grenoble as the crow flies, Chamrousse was officially created in 1950. Facing the Grand Albert, the resort has a rich history. Known in France for its Croix de Chamrousse, this local monument bears witness to the village's past. Rebuilt in 1990 with a metal base to withstand the weather, foundations prove that the cross dates from 1856. At 12 metres high, the Chamrousse monument overlooks the whole village and hides the magnificent Robert Lakes behind it.

In 1968, Chamrousse became a world success by hosting an event at the Grenoble Winter Olympics. The resort was lucky enough to host all the men's and women's alpine skiing events. These Games created the legend of Frenchman Jean-Claude KILLY, triple gold medallist in Downhill, Giant Slalom and Special Slalom. In his honour in 2018, during the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Grenoble Olympics, Chamrousse organised a Legends Race which retraced the event and the exploits of the French skier.

Culturally, Chamrousse aims to create a green resort. As a reward for their efforts, the village was awarded the Flocon Vert label in 2017, but Chamrousse continues to put nature first by committing to natural development and announcing their new project. Recently, the "Chamrousse 2030" project was announced, the aim is to restructure the town centre into a Smart Station. This innovation will revolutionise the idea of ski resorts and aims to make Chamrousse an attractive centre of the Alps with a wide range of outdoor activities for all seasons, well served, sustainable and connected. A futuristic project that will make Chamrousse one of the most modern resorts in France!

Already today, Chamrousse pleases thanks to its diversity of activities to discover. Always with a desire to be attractive all year round, the resort offers you lots of activities to do in winter, summer, spring and autumn.

During the winter season, when Chamrousse puts on its coat of snow, the possibilities of activities multiply and only your imagination will be your limit.

Take advantage of the 90km of skiable slopes for ski, snowboard and even freestyle lessons throughout your trip. If you prefer to walk up the slopes, there are snowshoeing, mountain biking and FatBike tours to discover the flora and fauna of Chamrousse. More unusual but perfect for a nice hike, use a Snooc to visit the trails of the dense forests of Isère. To continue to enjoy the natural setting of the resort, discover climbing during an initiation to mountaineering which will make you want to have your head in the clouds... And it is possible! Take off in a helicopter or paraglider above Chamrousse and enjoy an exceptional panorama of the entire Belledonne massif covered in snow. Once back on the ground, why not go straight back in a vehicle to experience the thrill of the ride! So go for laps of the track in your car and take advantage of the low grip to drift and get totally shaken up! If you prefer off-roading, get into a buggy and head for the forests of Chamrousse to discover the flora as close to nature as possible.
Even more choice ? it's possible, the resort offers plenty of unusual activities to do. To relax after one of these activities why not do a yoga session, but outside on the snow, it is possible thanks to the Snowga proposed by Chamrousse. Even more unusual, dive into the Robert lakes, under the ice that covers them. A unique and memorable activity for the most daring who are brave enough to take the plunge. Once the sun goes down, enjoy the beauty of the Chamrousse domain one last time during a night sled dog ride before leaving for the village SPA to recover from this long week of activities.

Now you have no excuse to stay in the chalet without doing anything and wondering what to do in Chamrousse, so take advantage of all the activities to do!

During the warmer seasons, Chamrousse changes its face and offers new activities! For the more adventurous, go for thrilling activities such as canyoning in the region's white water rivers. If you prefer, climb the mountains around the resort on a via ferrata or an introduction to mountaineering. Stay in the heights of the resort on an accrobranche outing that will delight young and old alike.

Discover the beauty of Chamrousse and its fauna on mountain bikes in the Bike Park, on all-terrain electric scooters or on a quad bike during an unforgettable excursion. Take to the skies and enjoy a breathtaking view of Chamrousse from the air, climb into a helicopter or take to the skies in a paraglider to experience a unique moment full of emotions and sensations! Back in the village, head for the sports centre and the Grenouillère lake where you can practice skateboarding, tennis or even water skiing, wakeboarding and water buoys! Finally, to relax after a good day of activities, the SPA will welcome you and make you recover to go back to Chamrousse the next day to do some activities!

Now that you know what's going on in Chamrousse, the only question you have to ask yourself is: Which activity should you start with? So plan your trip and enjoy some unique and unforgettable activities!
