Brevent/Flegere and Les Houches

Brevent and Flegere:

2 separate ski domains with a stunning panorama of Mont Blanc and the Aiguilles de Chamonix are joined by a high capacity cable car. The often sunny slopes are suited to all abilities with gentle pistes lower down and steep challenging runs from the top stations. Excellent off-piste bowls and couloirs for the adventurous.

 

Les Houches:

Beautiful tree lined slopes at a lower elevation offer long sweeping pistes for beginners and intermediates. Fantastic rustic restaurants and calmer weather make this the ideal starting point for families. Extensive well built snowpark and good off-piste in the trees.

Grands Montets and Le Tour

Grands Montets:

A huge open area of pistes of all difficulties and a massive vertical of 2765m from top to bottom. There are beginner and  kids areas on the valley floor and gentle pistes around the mid station. Steep tough reds and blacks higher up. Snowpark and boarder cross at mid station. Incredible open off-piste and huge bowls and with access to the Argentiere glacier and Pas de Chevre its the stuff of legend!

 

Le Tour (Domaine de Balme):

On the border with Switzerland, white alpine meadows overlook the whole length of the valley and offer a good mix of wide open pistes and tree runs. Large beginner area at base and gentle pistes aplenty. Amazing deep powder tree skiing is the highlight of the great off-piste.

Courmayeur

A short trip through the Mont Blanc Tunnel brings you to Courmayeur; set above the beautiful ancient Italian town of the same name. The south facing slopes are often warm and sunny and the restaurants serve excellent local cuisine. The pistes are paradise for the intermediate skier with long open descents into tree lined valleys. The off-piste is excellent with outrageous deep powder forays through the sweeping forests. The top cable cars offer some challenging pistes and some unbelievable off-piste itineraries for which we recommend a high mountain guide.

Aiguille du Midi

Climbing effortlessly from Chamonix to 3842m altitude is the awe-inspiring Aiguille du Midi. As you disembark at a sharp rocky pinnacle you will wonder how on earth they built it! The scale and majesty of the mountains is overshadowed only by the thought of skiing down! There are numerous incredible descents ranging from difficult to frankly ridiculous. We strongly recommend a high mountain guide, which we can arrange for you, as the long glacial descents can be extremely dangerous and weather conditions treacherous. Check out our Off-piste and Ski Touring Experiences to see how you can ski and board incredible routes.
