Ski area focus
The ski area of the Chamonix valley is undoubtedly an ideal destination for skiing enthusiasts. The ski area of the Chamonix valley is divided into 4 complementary areas offering a myriad of possibilities. Great slopes, wilderness skiing, cross-country skiing, beginner and freeride trails - there is something for all levels. Note that ski areas are spread over 3 slopes (with stunning views) and that 90% of the ski area is more than 2,000m above sea level. The Grands Montets area (1250m to 3300m above sea level) is known for its generous snow cover until May. You can also practice going off-piste in extraordinary areas close to the glaciers. The two linked ski areas of Brevent / Flégère are positioned to the south and invite you to discover magnificent, perfectly marked trails in front of the Mont-Blanc valley. Also close by is Le Balme, located at the start of the villages of Tour and Vallorcine, offering varied itineraries between skiing in the forest and floating down gentle slopes. Skiers can enjoy 79 runs spread across 119km, as well as make use of the snowpark, 22 snow cannons and a host of additional amenities.
Chamonix is not exclusively a destination reserved for skiers, its dynamism and cultural and natural history make it a destination of choice for anyone wanting to enjoy a holiday in the Alps! Hiking lovers can access 17 km of footpaths connecting Chamonix to Tines. Discover the incredible richness of the fauna and the local flora by renting a pair of snowshoes and accessing one of the many marked trails: you won't be disappointed. Take a paragliding flyover, discover the ice cascade, or jump on a train or cable car to reach exceptional sites such as the Mer de Glace or the Aiguille du Midi - the activities are plentiful. The most experienced athletes will be able to climb to the "roof of Europe". The ascent of Mont Blanc remains an achievement and challenge for many mountaineers. The resort itself will also delight you with its many events - such as concerts, festivals, markets, Christmas markets and sports games - and there is also a cinema, many restaurants, bars, nightclubs and a selection of museums. It is absolutely impossible to get bored in Chamonix!
