Environment House

  • Maison Environnement
The "chalet du Recoin" in Chamrousse 1650, used to be the former refuge of the French Alpin Club (CAF). Since summer 2018, it has been transformed into the Environment House of Chamrousse, with a reception hall and an exhibition space.
The Environment House provides a shelter to the Environment organization of Chamrousse, which coordinates several parties in the territory. This organization supports the city council, the ski lifts company and the tourist office for any project involving environmental issues, education or entertainment.

The Environment organization works along with local partners on several topics:
- pastoralism and hiking trails
- fittings and works
- scientific monitoring (fauna, flora, geology)
- communication and entertainment
- education

Some actions have already been taken in Chamrousse to protect the environment and develop a sustainable resort:
- creation of new areas dedicated to pastoralism which could be used by the Tétras lyre birds to nest
- use of local species of seeds to cover the ski slopes
