During our ski courses we aim to ski a variety of the Chamonix ski areas. Here is some info about the different ski areas in Chamonix and the type of skiing expected on our ski courses.
Les Grands Montets / AMP Ski courses
Les Grands Montets is one of the more challenging of the ski areas. Here you may see famous freerider and alpine skiers hanging out. Big vertical descents with glaciers on the upper section. Wide open bowl skiing with steeps and couloirs. This is Chamonix off piste skiing at its best. The tree skiing and into 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 / AMP Ski courses
Le Tour at the high end of the Chamonix valley is great for all levels on piste and off piste. The front side is 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 more advanced and expert course skiers. Best spots. All of the back side area and off the Possettes drag lift for some more classic Chamonix off piste. A short climb on foot to the top of Tete de Balme, provides long backcountry ski runs.
L' Aiguile du Midi / AMP Ski courses
The Aiguile du Midi lift takes off piste 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 making the skiing more serious. A High mountain guide is advised for this.
Le Brevent and La Flegere / AMP Ski courses
These 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 / AMP 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.
