More info about Chamonix

 

Chamonix is quite simply a magical place. Lift your eyes upwards from anywhere in the Chamonix Valley and you can’t miss the mythical peaks of Mont Blanc. Sitting at the foot of Mont Blanc, Chamonix town has become a veritable Mecca for winter and summer mountain sports enthusiasts.
 

Skiing and snowboarding are the main draws to the Valley in winter, whilst in the summer it’s all about walking, hiking, mountaineering, paragliding and mountain biking. But even if you’ve no aspirations to conquer Mont Blanc or ski down the steepest, powder-filled slopes, you will still fall in love with this most famous corner of the French Alps, which exudes a certain charm, is steeped in history and boasting one of the most impressive backdrops of any town you’ll visit,

Ski courses

Off piste skiing courses in Chamonix for intermediate, advanced and expert skiers.

Each ski course has it's own private minibus for the duration of the course.  This gives us flexibility to transport to the best skiing conditions available.  We aim to ski a variety of the Chamonix ski areas on ski courses. 

Les Grands Montets / Chamonix off piste ski courses

 Les Grands Montets ski area offers big vertical descents with glaciers on the upper section. There is plenty of wide, open bowl skiing with some great steep sections and couloirs. This is Chamonix off piste skiing at its best. The tree skiing and in-to valley couloirs are also great for expert skiers.  A good lift system opens up 3 sides to this amazing off piste mountain. Our best spots: Le Grand Muir, Pylones, Point de Vue, La Combe de la Pendant, Combe de la Rachasse. The Magic Forest (Dream Forest) also offers very good off piste skiing in the trees.

Le Tour / Chamonix off piste ski courses

Le Tour at the high end of the Chamonix valley is great for all skier levels, on piste and off piste. The front side offer's easy terrain for beginner off piste skiers. This is an ideal place for us to take intermediate level ski courses on the first couple of days of the course. The back side of the mountain offers very nice off piste terrain for the advanced and expert courses. Best spots. All the back side and off the Possettes drag lift for some classic Chamonix off piste. A short climb on foot to the top of Tete de Balme, provides long backcountry ski runs.

 

Le Brevent and La Flegere / Chamonix off piste ski courses

These ski areas are linked together and offer very good couloir and open bowl off piste skiing. Most of the off piste in this part of Chamonix  is south facing so avalanches can be frequent on warm afternoons. Best spots. La Floria, Brevent summit, Col Cornu. Combe de Lachanal for more great Chamonix off piste skiing.

Les Houches / Chamonix off piste ski courses

Les Houches is situated as at the lower end of the Chamonix valley and offers very nice tree-lined piste skiing and some shorter off piste runs. Best spots. Under the Prarion cables, The hidden meadows and secret off piste spots that only us locals know about.

Chamonix is just 1 hour drive from Geneva airport. Many companies fly into Geneva airport from most major UK airports making it very easy to find transport to come and join one of our ski courses.
