Argentiere Ski Area
Argentiere village is at the Northern end of Chamonix and starts at an altitude of approximately 1,250 metres. The ski area is located partly on a glacier that spans three mountain areas (Argentière, Lognan and La Pendant). Argentiere and the Grands Montets provide Chamonix skiing on groomed pistes and Chamonix off piste, or freeride terrain. It is famous throughout the world of skiing and snowboarding because of its long challenging slopes and massive terrain. With some amazing Chamonix skiing available, book your lessons with our Chamonix ski school.
Le tour is one of the best ski areas in the Chamonix valley for beginner and intermediate skiers. The bottom of Le Tour holds three drag lifst and an ideal beginners area. There is also plenty of off-piste terrain over the back side of the Balme at Le Tour. So this ski area does have something for everyone. But it is also the furthest to reach and getting there from Chamonix centre requires the bus or driving but it is worth it.
Brevent / Flegere
Brevent ski area is accessed from the centre of Chamonix by the Plan Praz Telecabine. Alternatively the ski area can be accessed from the Flegere Telepherique at the North of Chamonix. The Brevent is the sunny side of the mountain and there is a beginner’s area at the bottom and also the mid station. But there is a step up in the difficulty level of the terrain after that. So it is advised to progress under the guidance of a skilled instructor. There is plenty of terrain choice for all levels of skier from intermediate skiers, right up to pro skiers. The Brevent also hosts some of the World Freedride Tour competitions as well as other notable events.
Savoy Beginners Area
The Savoy beginners area is at the very bottom of the Brevent ski area almost in the centre of town. Situated just behind the Folie Douce hotel. The Savoy beginners area is well equipped with a flat land area, a travellator, and a drag lift. Providing the perfect environment for first time skiers to progress. From here we can easily progress to intermediate terrain directly above in the Brevent ski area.
Les Houches is at the south end of Chamonix and offers lots of tree lined skiing. Superb for giving better visibility on days that have some cloud cover. There are two good beginner ski areas and progressive terrain available in Les Houches. Access from the centre of Chamonix via the free ski bus.
