Ski or Snowboard Chamrousse

Rate this Adventure France Chamrousse Ski Area

Added by Lars Krafft

Snowboard fun for everyone! Great Ski area for beginners as well as pros with panoramic views and best snow - on and off-piste.

Starting point is the little tourist-village where you can rent apartments for 2 up to 10 persons ("Le Domaine de l'Aselle") via SnowTrex (www.snowtrex.us). The ski lift starts right at the center of the village (3-7min walking, depending on where your apartment is located) and lifts you up to 2.250m at the top of the mountain. From there you have several prepared tracks down to 23 different lifts. If you're interested in off-piste snowboarding or skiing, then you're at the right place. Between the prepared tracks are several forest areas to explore with deep powder for a maximum of fun. There are also several Snow- and Funparks as well as Ski-Cross tracks and a speed track available.

Besides snowboarding they have multiple routes for Snowshoeing, Ski-Touring, Hiking or even an area to ride snowmobiles. And if you're done with all that exploring and adventure you can chill out in the pool area with jacuzzi and sauna (but they are often way too crowded).

Everything you need such as a Supermarket, Restaurant and Café is accessible by foot within a few minutes.

Begin at the marked path to the right of the parking lot, near the monastery. The trail is steep at first, but this lasts only for a few meters, in the undergrowth.
