A little more about Chamonix & our off piste / all mountain ski courses here.
Chamonix is known as the mecca of off piste and freeride skiing. There are 6 ski areas offering a huge amount of easy to acess off piste routes. Chamonix's off piste skiing is great for all levels of off piste skier from powder novice to powder pro. The lift system allows skiers to access great off piste skiing straight from the ski lifts. This makes Chamonix the ideal place for us to run our off piste / all mountain ski courses.
Each Chamonix ski area offers a different type of terrain for off piste skiing. Le Brevent and la Flegere are great for couloirs and bowl skiing for all levels of off piste skier.
Further up the Chamonix valley Les Grands Montets is a huge mountain with undoubtabley some of the best off piste skiing on the planet. You may see famous freeriders skiing about. Glaciers on the upper sections lead down to wide open bowl skiing with steeps and couiloirs. The tree skiing and into valley couloirs are also great for expert level skiers. Les Grandes Montets offers big vertical drops. It's possible to ski over 2000m vertical in one run! Clocking up around 10 000 vertical meters in a day on expert level ski courses. A good lift system up to 3300m, opens up 3 sides to this amazing ski mountain.
The Le Tour ski area situated at the high end of the Chamonix valley is also great for all levels on piste and off piste. The front side offers easy terrain for beginner off piste skiers. This is an ideal place for us to take intermediate level skiers for the first couple of days of their course. The off piste bowls on the back side offer great skiing terrain for more advanced and expert off piste skiers with a real backcountry feel not too far from the lifts.
The Aiguile du Midi cable car takes skiers and alpinists from Chamonix town to an impressive altitude of 3842 meters. This is not a ski area for piste skiing. All the runs are off piste and on a glacier, this makes the skiing more serious. A High mountain guide is highly reccomended for this.
Les Houches is situated as at the lower end of the Chamonix valley and offers very nice tree-lined piste skiing and some off piste in the trees. This the where the mens world cup combined event the Kandahar is held. The best skiers in the world race in downhill and slalom over a 2 day event.
Chamonix is only 1 hour drive from Geneva airport .
