2768, 2769 FRANCE (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes) - Chamrousse

2768 Chamrousse in summertime

Chamrousse is a ski resort in southeastern France, in the Belledonne Mountain Range near Grenoble in the Isère department. It is located in a commune of the same name and is situated on the Recoin at 1,650m and the Roche Béranger at 1,750m. Actually, it is made up of two small towns: Chamrousse 1650 (Nook) and Chamrousse 1750-1700 (Roche Beranger - Arselle Ski Area) which are interconnected by ski slopes. The resort is cleverly built within the forest and has exceptional panoramic views overlooking Grenoble on the valley floor...

The ski-lifts reach the Cross of Chamrousse at 2,253m. There are more than 90km of downhill runs at Chamrousse and 24 ski lifts. There are also 37km of trails for cross-country skiing. Cross-country skiing can be practised from the opening of the resort to early or mid-April. Skiers here can discover or rediscover the Olympic slopes and the technical Casserousse Couloir which provides over 850 metres of vertical ski descent. But Chamrousse is not only for skiers, there are many outdoor activities on offer for example; Paragliding, Snowshoeing, Snow mobiling and Ice driving.
