Chamrousse goes retro for a weekend!
Every year, this unique event brings together hundreds of enthusiasts of old machines (cars, motorcycles, scooters) and vintage skiing.
It's an opportunity to relive the history of winter sports for a weekend, from the first hesitant tracks of the pioneers of the 30s, to the more modernist and sharpened style of the late 60s.

- Spectator - free access: vintage village and convoy gathering of vintage vehicles and skating rink evening.
- PARTICIPANTS: Paying and with registration: vintage slalom (ski pass), swing dance lessons (€30 for 4 hours) and evening party (€10).
Dress code: in order to experience this journey through time, we invite participants to respect a coherent dress code, with ski outfits and evening wear either vintage (pre-1969) or inspired by it.
