We stayed here early Jan 2011. We love Chamrousse as the views are lovely and it is so peacefull in the night, you can ski all day and relax all night with your balcony facing into the woods. There are only two restaurants with bars in resort and one supermarket and it is expensive. The outdoor pool is fab after a hard ski but is freezing. The snow parks are great as they have an adult and kids one and they have a timed race slope which we loved! We will go back as the ski school for our son is excellent, but bear in mind the resort is completely French, so our son had ski school in French but he loved it all the same.
