Chamrousse activities and skiing

Has anyone been over new year? We want to take our children age 6/9 on their first ski holiday. Do they do fireworks on new years eve like other resorts? Are there shops and places to eat of an evening as I don't want to cook? Any advice before we book is great

Not been at New Year, but have been twice at Feb Half term (and going again this year). Just checked the website and it looks like they will have a reasonable New Years event (chamrousse.com/file-introduction_agenda-377-…)

Youngest daughter (was 5 now 7) has done the Club Piou-Piou twice and as long as you remind them you need an English speaking instructor( unless your 6 year old is fluent in french ;) it's a good way to learn to Ski.

We have stayed in the "DOMAINE DE L'ARSELLE" residences both years and there are a number of reasonable shops and places to eat (but a typical inflated mountain prices), including takeaway pizza/roast chicken.

The Piou-Piou area at L'Arselle (1700) is better that the one in Bachat-Bouloud (1750), and is next to a very nice Green Slope to take the kids onto when not in lessons.

We really like the area, and even in two years haven't skied it all. Our group includes my parents (in their 60's) and three children (15,11 & 7 this year), and mixed ability, and Chamrousse has something for all of us, including the very technical 'Snow Park'.
