As the snow seems to be getting better and better late into the season, why not take advantage of Chamonix’s lifts and pistes which stay open until mid-May and enjoy some truly spectacular late season skiing.

Les Houches

Les Houches is the first ski area you reach on entering the Chamonix valley. The area has gentle, rolling slopes and tree-lined runs for all the family. Nestled within the trees are a number of traditional style restaurants.

For those wanting more of a challenge; the black run ‘Le Kandahar’ was the setting for the World Cup Downhill 2012.

Nursery Slopes

Beginner-friendly nursery slopes are found at the bottom of each of the main areas described above and are easily accessible. This is where you can gain the confidence to tackle the more challenging pistes further up the mountain.

Le Brevent-La Flegere

Le Brevent-La Flegere are two areas interlinked giving easy access from the centre of Chamonix, to a massive skiing area. The sunny slopes offer good intermediate skiing with long red runs and fantastic easily accessible off-piste. There are also incredible views of Mont Blanc.

The Vallee Blanche

The Vallee Blanche Chamonix’s most famous glacier run affords 26kms of spectacular off-piste skiing down the Mer de Glace. Reached via the Aiguille du Midi cable car at 3842m.

With a vertical drop of 2000m to the valley floor and skiing through the trees, you can really push yourself to the limit!
