Ski Area Guide
Not sure where to go? Here is a quick guide to each of the ski areas.
Les Grands Montets: the famous Grands Montets, busy at the best of times but worth the wait. Les Grands Montets (GM to its friends) is best suited to the intermediate to advanced skier or snowboarder. With easily accessed off-piste and plenty of red and black runs, it gets tracked quickly on powder days. The boarder cross is a lot of fun for the whole family and non-skiers can enjoy the view from the top bin. The snow on GM stays firm a lot longer in the season due to its North facing aspect and lack of sunshine in the mornings.
Flegere/Brevent: The closest ski areas to town, Flegere can be accessed from Brevent via cable car. Both areas are great for beginners or those wanting to freshen up their skills. Brevent has an amazing high altitude restaurant, perfect for skiers and hikers. Flegere is the best for families with young kids with an area dedicated to learning jumps and having fun in the snow. Both areas are soaked in sunlight all day long so get soft and slushy quickly from the end of February onwards.
Balme: Located at the very top of the valley and linked to Vallorcine. Balme is one of the very best places for both first timers and experiences skiers. There are lots of great little pockets of off-piste skiing available close to the piste and the forest runs in Vallorcine are truly unique.
Les Houches: The family favourite. More than just a ski area, Les Houches has 2 large activity areas including luge and games for the kids, regular events and lovely rolling hillsides.
