Chamrousse is the only French ski resort to host all of the alpine skiing events at the 1968 Olympic Games, on the slopes of Chamrousse 1650 - Recoin (women’s downhill and slalom) and Casserousse for the men’s downhill.
The French team shines on the slopes of the Belledonne massif in Chamrousse: eight medals (out of the nine won in 1968 by the French delegation) including the three titles of Jean-Claude Killy and that of Marielle Goitschel.

Today, it is still possible to descend these slopes of the Olympic Games from the sector Chamrousse 1650 - Recoin, even if that of Casserousse was modified to make it more accessible.

Legendary ski slopes:
- "Olympique Hommes" slope - Casserousse (black and red): initially created for the 1968 Olympic Games under the name Casserousse, the Men’s Olympic Track has undergone many changes during its existence. The last were undertaken with a view to certification in Giant (competition).

- "Olympique Dames" slope (red): track for the women’s downhill event that allows you to descend on the resort in one pass from the top of the Croix of Chamrousse.
Opening periodFrom 01/12 to 15/04, daily.
