Skiing & Snowboarding information
Chamonix skiing is the stuff of legend: glorious off-piste terrain, thrilling descents and unbeatable Mont Blanc views. It's so darn fantastic that skiers don't even mind that accessing the slopes involves lots of transport. Of Chamonix' nine main areas, Le Tour , Les Planards and Les Chosalets are best for beginners. For speed and challenge, it has to be Brévent-Flégère , above Chamonix, and Les Grands Montets , accessible from Argentière, 9km north of Chamonix. Boarders seeking big air zip across to the kickers and rails at Les Grands Montets snowpark and the natural half-pipe in Le Tour .
