The place lived up to everything I had been told about family skiing. The resort is not too big and most definitely family orientated but also had plenty of non family groups.
Chamrousse 1700 is a great resort for intermediates and beginners. Our second trip - the first time from Grenoble, this time from Geneva (about 1.5 hour drive from either). Plenty of prepared pistes and off piste skiing for those wanting a bit of a challenge. We saw some serious off piste too. Restaurants and bars offered a good range of places to take a break during the day or chill out at night.
We will most certainly be returning to Chamrousse. A little gem! ...

A delightful resort, often overlooked by the Brits. Good skiing for intermediates, and family orientated. This resort is great for little kids. Very caring lifties who will slow down chairs for little-ins and even help them on. Chamrousse is not a resort for hectic apres-ski, but has a few bars and delightful restaurants. This resort attracts a lot of weekend trade from grenoble, but during the week the slopes were very quiet, not a lift queue in sight! The snow cannons***isted in keeping the slopes skiable and the lift system reasonably well connected. This is a little known resort which is easy and convenient to get to, about 40mins from Grenoble, and it has alot to offer, we will definite...

Great resort for all abilities! Quick transfer from Grenoble. Amazing views. Great skiing and plenty for the advanced skier. The resort has a a good ski park and ski-cross course as well; great fun! We stayed at Ecrin Les Neiges appartments. Good value and highly recommended! Plenty of bars and restaurants for apres-ski. What more could you want? ...

A good value resort - apartment prices well below other French resorts; and they're 50% bigger, particularly in the Domaine d'Arselle, the extension below Chamrousse 1700. Very French - expect no English to be spoken. Good for beginners and intermediates - limited for better skiers; lacks the links to bigger ski domains. The black runs around the old 1968 Olympic courses are severe - categories elsewhere a bit haphazard; some greens are tougher than blues. Broadly, though, the further you are from 1650, the easier the runs. Limited restaurants - and the Gallic habit of booking ahead can make it hard to find a table, especially in the rather soulless centre of 1750. A lot of car-borne day tra...
