In Chamonix, life revolves around the mountains.
Ski areas for everyone!
In winter, ski slopes open for everyone, from beginners to experts to extreme free riders. Chamonix is THE destination to truly embrace the winter.
Ski areas for everyone!
The more experienced among us have several areas to take advantage of:
Starting from Chamonix or Les Praz, the Brévent-Flégère area, on the sunny side, is the best for you at the beginning of the ski season.
Starting from Argentière, Les Grands Montets on the north side retains very high-quality snow for a very long time. It’s the last area to close at the end of the season.
At the far end of the valley near the Swiss border, Le Tour-Vallorcine features some nice slopes through the forest, ideal for families.
At Les Houches, the town neighboring Chamonix, you can enjoy beautiful slopes sheltered by charming pine forests.
And for expert skiers:
The renowned “Top des Grands Montets”, with its plow-free snow and safe area, is a must.
And then there’s the world famous Vallée Blanche, a once in a lifetime experience on a glacier, that starts at the Aiguille du Midi.
A word of caution: We strongly recommend that you hire a high mountain guide to accompany you!
Le Refuge des Aiglons in Chamonix has ski lessons for every level of skill.
During your stay at Le Refuge des Aiglons, you will have the opportunity to meet Chamonix’s skiing schools. You will have the choice between the following schools: Evolution 2, Ecorider, or ESF.
These skiing schools also offer you the possibility of caring for your children. The kids will be picked up in the hotel’s entrance hall and taken out for a day (or more) of skiing lessons or initiation. Our partners will come and pick them up at the hotel, will take care of them all day (lunch included) and will bring them back in great shape after a day in the great outdoors.
And if you really want a care-free vacation, you can book our all-inclusive package that includes your stay, ski lessons for your children, and lunch up on the slopes…
