Verbier: 1h-1h20 trip. Tip: The Col du Montets may be closed due to heavy snow, so best to check before you leave. Don’t forget to bring your passport.

PISTE AREAS

Due to the world famous off piste terrain, it’s probably not a surprise that Chamonix has had a bit of a reputation for being a resort for the advanced skier, however this is not the full picture of Chamonix, and the resort has plenty to suit all levels of ability, from beginners and families to the most gnarliest of powder hunters.

The Chamonix valley is made up of 4 main ski areas.

These are located between 5 min and 25 minutes drive from town and are best accessed by the ski buses which are included in your ski passes. There is also plenty of parking available if you wish to drive. Brevent is in Chamonix and could be walked from some areas of the town centre. Brevent is also linked by a ski lift to the next ski area of Flegere. Further up the valley you will find Les Grands Montets which is situated in the village of Argentiere about 10 min drive from town, and finally Le Tour which is also known as Domaine de Balme and includes the small village of Vallorcine which is best accessed by skiing from Le Tour.

BREVENT

  • Closest to Town Centre, 5 min on bus
  • Mixed terrain but mainly intermediate to advanced
  • Linked to Flegere ski area

FLEGERE

  • 6 minutes drive from Chamonix
  • Mixed terrain, good for beginners, intermediates and expert
  • Lots of good off-piste off the Floria lift

LES GRANDS MONTETS

  • Best for intermediate to expert
  • Excellent off-piste areas, such as Lavancher bowl
  • Located in Argentiere town, 12 min drive from Chamonix

LE TOUR

  • Excellent for beginners and intermediates
  • Fantastic family area
  • 20 minutes from Chamonix

BREVENT

This area is located in Chamonix town, it is walkable from the town centre but up a very steep hill so you might want to just catch one of the many buses going there instead. It is a good area for low intermediates, intermediates and advanced skiers.

It is linked to Flegere which is the next ski area in Praz village, giving a lot of terrain for those who like to ski for miles.

There is an excellent black run there called the Charles Bozon which is definitely worth a visit if you are a good skier. There is also a restaurant with excellent views up that same lift, however for those who want to enjoy the view without having to ski down a black run, you can catch the lift both up and down.

This area does also from time to time host an air bag (free) if you want to practice jumps, and a border cross route

FLEGERE

One of our favourite places in Chamonix, south facing and glorious on sunny mountain days. A great area for beginners with a lovely long green run and numerous blues and reds. Flegere caters for all ski abilities as there is also a well known black run accessing excellent off-piste, called the Floria.

Lots of ledges and edges make it a good area for snowboarders and jibbers, and you can often especially in spring see talented youngsters doing all manner of tricks off the piste there.

La Chavanne restaurant is worth a visit for ambience. Enjoy a drink while soaking up the afternoon sun with simply the best views of the Mont Blanc Massif.

LES GRANDS MONTETS

This is where the serious skiers go to! The top lift accesses a very long unpisted black run which is a heaven for powder in good snow conditions. Be aware that this ski area is also glaciated.

In the main ski area there are a couple of long reds which if you team with the nicely undulating home run, gives you a very long and steep descent. There is a black which leads to the Lavancher bowl, which is excellent for off-piste skiing.

The Grands Montets also hosts the jump park which has rails, jumps and bumps for all abilities.

Towards the bottom of the home run you will see a small sign on your right hand side for the Cremerie, this is definitely worth a visit for its delicious local fare of croutes and fondu!

LE TOUR

The family area of Chamonix, sunny and south facing.

An excellent beginner area at the bottom before you go up the main lift, has both green and a blue. Plenty blues and reds to practice on when you go up the lift to the main ski area.

It has recently been extended to the other side of the mountain, so you can now take the cable car from Vallorcine. This side offers great tree-lined routes, ideal on lower visibility days.

One of our favourite restaurants (don’t tell everyone!) is the bistro Le Café Comptoir behind the train station in Vallorcine. Be sure to book in the height of the season.

This is the area furthest from Chamonix, about 20 min drive.
