Chamrousse, the quaint ski village famous for its role in the 1968 Winter Olympics which took place in Grenoble is set for a complete revamp. In conjunction with Aktis Architecture, Chamrousse will take a huge step forward into the future with a long-term plan to become France’s first full ‘Smart Station’. Whilst we have seen similar plans in resorts such as Avoriaz and La Clusaz, Chamrousse is completely challenging perceptions of what a ski resort is. Rather than focusing only on winter sports, the new plans which have been unveiled reveal a ski village for all seasons and all occasions. Set to be completed in 2030, by diversifying the type of tourism they offer, they can secure the future of their village in a time some small ski resorts are failing to thrive.
Over the next 13 years the village, along with Aktis Architecture and some of Grenoble’s most innovative companies will do the following:
Beginning in the main village, Le Recoin, where €10 million has already been invested and set to extend to Chamrousse 1650, these bold plans ensure that it will be a place to visit at any time of the year, and for any reason.
