About the Skiing and Boarding in Chamonix
Spread out over the valley, the ski resort of Chamonix has everything to offer. Beginners have a nursery area fairly separate from the rest of the slopes so there is no need not worry about people speeding past. Intermediates have a good choice of places to refine their skills - Col de Balme above La Tour offers good cruising runs and the Brevent and Flegere areas both offer a good mix of blues and reds.
The ski resort of Chamonix is however, one of the great resorts for an expert skiier. To make the most of the area, we recommend hiring a guide to show you some of the best off piste. The famous Vallee Blanche is one to do if you are a seasoned skier, looking for adventure and some stunning scenery. There are plenty of other great runs off the Grand Montets cable car, a variety of runs from the Brevant cable car, and from La Tour, there are some good off-piste runs back to the village or towards Vallorcine.
