CHAMONIX-MONT-BLANC SKIING

The skiing in the Chamonix valley is spread across 5 main areas, with some smaller ski outposts and off-piste adding to the mix. Brévent, Flégère, Les Houches, Grands Montets and the Balme Vallorcine areas make up the skiing whilst the Aiguille du Midi accesses the iconic Vallée Blanche off-piste ski route. Chamonix has a well-deserved reputation for tough terrain with some of the best steep and off-piste skiing in France. Brévent, Flégère and the Grands Montets areas all offer excellent challenging terrain. The north facing slopes of the Grands Montets area offer some superb off-piste terrain.

For those in the know, follow the locals over to Rendl for a day of untracked powder skiing although the newly developed, more central and higher capacity Rendlbahn gondola is sure to make this secret spot less secret over time. Guiding in St Anton is some of the best around and is essential in most off-piste areas. For those looking for less extreme skiing, the Arlberg ski region is huge and mightily impressive. For the intermediate skier then the Arlberg ski region is superb – long runs beyond the St Anton ski area are a great feature.
