With its three major ski zones, Chamonix offers an à la carte ski configuration that will appeal to families looking for easy slants as well as the most demanding skiers.
With its superb panorama over the Chamonix Valley, its vast and gently sloping slants suitable for beginners and intermediate skiers, the Balme area will appeal to the whole family. You can ski between the pines, a stone's throw from Switzerland on the Vallorcine slope, or move on the snow-covered mountain pastures near Charamillon.
Suitable for all levels, the Flégère offers a view of the Aiguilles to be admired at all costs! Once the slopes are downhill, you can reach the valley's southern slope by cable car: the Brévent sector. Rather intended for intermediate to expert skiers, it offers the most beautiful view of Mont-Blanc under a bright sun most of the time. There you will find a very popular black slope but demanding connoisseurs' opinion: the Charles Bozon, which will take you to Planpraz.
Although it has two beginners' areas on the Lognan plateau and Les Chosalets, the Grands Montets area attracts above all skiers in search of adrenaline. People come from far away to taste the most significant drops in the world located near the glaciers. The off-piste here is sensational, and the snowfall is exceptional due to the north orientation and the resort's high altitude—a legendary resort and the flagship attraction of Chamonix in France, without a doubt.
