Ski rental Les Houches
A dynamic and sporty resort, Les Houches was built considerately around a string of hamlets, offering an exceptional view of the Aiguilles de Chamonix. From the legendary "Verte des Houches", World Cup downhill slope to beginners' areas, forests and large open spaces, Les Houches implores you to change your scenery and embrace mindfulness. Whether you're coming as a family or couple, solo or with a group of friends, Les Houches will fill skiers and mountain lovers with delight. The ski area will open this year from November to April.
Ski area focus
Les Houches ski area extends over 910m of altitude, ranging from 990m to 1900m above sea level. It consists of 21 runs that total 27km of downhill fun (including 1km of night trails). At the top of the Prarion gondola, beginner skiers can find their ski feet in a space totally dedicated to them. More seasoned skiers can try the famous Verte des Houches or enjoy unique thrills while practicing off-piste. On the newer side of the slopes, there is a snowpark just a short distance from the Schuss des Dames chairlift, divided into two distinct areas: Airpark Bellevue and SnowParks DC Shoes. Whatever your level and whatever your practice, you will find an area suited to you in the Les Houches ski area. Alpine skiing, cross-country skiing around the lake, Nordic skiing, surfing, telemark skiing, ski jumping and sledding are also on offer at this multi-activity playground paradise.
Whether you decide to hit the slopes or not, Les Houches is an ideal holiday destination! For example, the most adventurous can try speed riding or paragliding over the Chamonix valley. If you're an animal lover you can try dog sledding, or take down the pace with a ski joëring or snowshoe trekking adventure to discover the ice waterfall. Closer to the town there are many discos, bars, shops and tea rooms as well as a resort cinema and casino for maximum entertainment. Guests can stretch out sore muscles in one of the resort's fitness centers, or have a massage in one of Les Houches' spas. Additionally, the resort arranges a number of events throughout the year - be sure to check what's on during your stay!
