CONFIDENCE BUILDING

Les Houches

One of the more popular ski areas for beginners, intermediates and family skiing with a large array of confidence boosting blues and reds.

Large wide pistes, and several tree lined runs make it not only a great area for cruising and carving, but also one of the prettiest ski areas in the Chamonix Valley.

Beginners are well catered for at the top of the Prarion with a wide bowl, travelators, and slow moving chair. A snow garden is also situated at the bottom of the Prarion, below Chalet No.5.

Home of the FIS Kandahar World Cup run that takes place in February, experts will love the challenging black run that the race follows. Big jumps and tight turns make it one of the most challenging on the calendar.

Off-piste whilst limited, what is available is excellent for developing competence and then moving on to bigger off-piste tests, should you sometime in the future wish to.

There is also some excellent nordiques skiing and snow shoeing areas at the top of the mountain.

WINTER PRICES

Complimented by two of the best mountain restaurants in the Valley (Les Veilles Luges and La Taniere), Les Houches has something for all.

SUNSHINE & STUNNING VIEWS

BREVENT & FLEGERE

Predominantly south facing slopes, magnificent views of Chamonix town and Mont Blanc opposite, this is an area particularly suited for intermediates.

STEEP, DEEP & CHALLENGING

GRANDS MONTETS

Not for the faint hearted, good for competent intermediates, outstanding, particularly off-piste for advanced and experts.

OFF-PISTE EXCELLENT

LA TOUR (LA BALME)

Good for beginners and intermediates on-piste, fabulous for advanced and experts off-piste (guide recommended). Cruise reds and blues or head down through the trees.
