Skiing in Chamrousse

Chamrousse is perched up on a plateau which means the views are superb from the resort and from the slopes.

A real benefit which makes Chamrousse a great option for a ski holiday is that if has such a short transfer from Grenoble airport. In years gone by, 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.

Getting here

Fly to Grenoble and the transfer is only a fraction over an hour

Self-driving is excellent value and we can also arrange trains from Paris or London - see travel arrangements
