Chamonix Piste Map and ski areas Something for all abilities Chamonix ski areas has some thing for everyone. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced skier or snowboarder there will be plenty to challenge you. Le Brevent- Is just a few minutes drive from the chalet. This is the closest ski area to Chamonix town. Intermediate skiers tend to enjoy the pistes on offer here. The view from the top of the Brevent is one of my favourites and for those who do not fancy the black run down you can always take the cablecar back down to the mid station.
La Flegere- is linked with Le Brevent and can be accessed either via Brevent or by parking at les Praz and taking the lift directly to the ski area of La Flegere. Plenty of terrain for off piste and some easy wide slopes for beginners. This is just over 5 minutes drive from the chalet. Les Grands Montets- is 15 minutes drive from Chamonix. It is one of the ski areas which has made Chamonix famous, steep terrain and plenty of opportunities for off-piste skiing.
Advanced skiers will really enjoy this ski area. Le Tour-this ski area is 20 minutes drive from Chamonix and is excellent to get those ski legs going. Les Chosalet nursery slopes are excellent for beginners. Les Houches-this is a little village 8km from Chamonix and is great on bad weather days when the trees provide better visibility. A very pretty little ski area which families tend to enjoy. It has excellent mountain restaurants too. A good selection of blue and red runs for beginners and intermediates.
Even if you are an advanced skier it is strongly advised to take a guide for this trip. See lift pass information. Click to enlarge.
The lower map shows the domains and lifts covered by the Le Pass , the cheaper and more restricted pass for Chamonix. The 2 maps give a great visual understanding of the 2 different ski pass options for Chamonix. Some of the main considerations to think about for skiing and snowboarding Chamonix: If you want to do the the Vallee Blanche then go for the MBU pass as it covers all the lifts you need to access the glacier and get down by the train if you want. For a 1st time in Chamonix or on a short break then consider the Le Pass as it gives loads of terrain for intermediate skiers and snowboarders.
We can advise you on which pass to buy once in resort depending on snow and weather conditions and what you are planning to do during your stay. If you have been before remember to bring back your old pass to re charge.
