Chamonix Mont Blanc Resort Information

The Chamonix Valley stretches from Servoz to Barberine on the Swiss border. The main towns within the Chamonix Valley include Les Houches, Les Bossons, Chamonix, Les Praz, Montroc / Le Tour and Vallorcine.

Chamonix became the world capital of mountaineering and developed into a world-renowned ski resort after. It is actually formed of 5 ski resorts and one large famous off-piste area (Vallee Blanche) with lift access via the Aiguille du Midi.

The main ski lift areas (working up the Valley) are:

  • In Les Houches - Les Houches,
  • In Chamonix - Le Brevent and the Aiguille du Midi (off-piste only, the Vallee Blanche)
  • In Les Praz - La Flégère
  • In Le Tour/Vallorcine - Le Tour/Balme

Flégère is interconnected with Brévent. There are other smaller beginner lift areas including Les Planards in Chamonix. 

Chamonix and its valley are dominated by the Mont Blanc chain to the south and the Aiguilles Rouges (red peaks) to the north. Even if you’ve never been to Chamonix you’re bound to have heard of it - and seen photographs of the magnificent mountain it’s irrevocably linked with: the mighty massif of Mont Blanc – the highest peak in the Alps!

Chamonix is in the north-westerly part of the Alps, just 15km from the Swiss border via the Col des Montets and 15km from Italy via the Mont-Blanc tunnel. The town centre is situated at an altitude of 1035m. The picturesque year-round town of Chamonix enjoys a wide range of attractions, shops, bars and restaurants as well as a large sports complex offering a variety of sporting activities, a swimming pool, and an ice rink.

For strong skiers Chamonix Mont Blanc is the undisputed off-piste capital of Europe with some quite extraordinary experiences awaiting you on the Mont Blanc Massif.

Mer de la Glace improvements - in order to preserve and enhance the memory of this emblematic site, an investment programme of over €53m is underway. As part of the reconfiguration of the site, a new gondola lift will be opening in December 2023 in order to transport visitors to the ice cave, or skiers arriving from the Vallée Blanche. The gondola will depart from the end platform of the Montenvers site and will arrive 600m up glacier. The existing 500 steps to access the glacier will no longer exist.


In the 18th century, Chamonix still lived off agriculture. In 1741, two Englishmen, William Windham and Richard Pococke, set off to explore the valley. They discovered the Glacier des Bois. They were fascinated by the expanse of ice and gave it its present name, the Mer de Glace (or Sea of Ice).

They were enthralled by their expedition and when they returned to London they decided to write about their experiences which set off adventurers from all over the world to explore and hence the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc tourist industry was born.

In 1760, Horace Bénédict de Saussure (a scientist from Geneva) offered a reward to the first person to reach Mont Blanc. On 8 August 1786, Jacques Balmat and Michel Paccard, both from Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, made the first-ever ascent of the mountain. A year later, de Saussure himself reached the top of Mont Blanc with help from Jacques Balmat. The expeditions could naturally only take place in summer and local farmers became guides and hoteliers which was important for the locals in kicking off early tourism and providing much-needed income.

Chamonix ski area

The Chamonix Valley itself has many separate ski areas (90% over 2000m altitude) – the exhilarating Grand Montets, the Domaine de Balme (Vallorcine), Les Houches and then Le Brévent and La Flégère (Flegere is 3km from the centre) in Chamonix itself. Generally, the Chamonix Valley is a Mecca for experts and off-piste enthusiasts but there are some great areas for intermediates and beginners too.

Skiing in Chamonix is easy as all five areas are linked by an efficient bus service (free with your lift pass).

Even if you have no plans to ski the celebrated Vallée Blanche run, try to experience the famous Aiguille du Midi cable car ride up to 3842m in Chamonix, visit ice caves, and enjoy scenic mountain train rides. 

On either side of Chamonix, you’ll find the base stations of the Aiguille du Midi – the starting point for the Vallée Blanche - and the gondola to Le Brévent. La Flégère is reached by cable car from the nearby village of Les Praz (3km from Chamonix). The other ski areas are widely spread across the valley.

In Chamonix itself, Le Brévent and La Flégère (2525m) face the Mont Blanc range with a sunny exposition, this ski area offers incredible panoramic views and a variety of slopes suitable for all types of skier and levels of expertise.

Down the road, Balme-Le Tour (2270m) is an excellent all-around intermediate area with spectacular views down the valley: just right for a day’s family skiing. Wide and gentle sunny slopes
offer exceptional views of the Mont-Blanc Massif and on the Vallorcine side, tree-lined descents with many variants appeal to all levels of skier. Since December 2022, the new Charamillon Gondola (departing from Le Tour) is able to transport 2,200 people per hour, compared to 1,004 with the old equipment.

Partially located on a glacier, Les Grands Montets (2765m) covers three mountainsides (the Argentière glacier, Lognan and the Pendant) and offers a vast range of on and off-piste skiing with tremendous vertical drop. It is a popular departure point for ski touring.

The famous Vallée Blanche descent should only be skied with a guide (bookable locally) and provides 22kms of unforgettable skiing in stunning scenery. The usual “classic” route is not that difficult but a guide will be alert to any crevasse dangers!

Additional ski fact info, main ski info in resort facts box at top of page (22/23):

You can choose to use the Mont Blanc Unlimited pass which covers a huge area across Chamonix Valley, Les Houches, Megève-Evasion Mont-Blanc, Courmayeur & Verbier. The ski areas and sites are not lift-linked, except for Brévent - Flégère areas in Chamonix, so you need to take the valley shuttle buses or take a car if you have one. It also includes 3 excursion sites: Aiguille du Midi, Montenvers - Mer de Glace & Tramway du Mont-Blanc.

You also have the choice of Cham Le Pass as well which is a smaller area of 120km and includes Chamonix Brévent - Flégère and Vallorcine/Le Tour Balme.

Chamonix skiing info

There are a number of ski areas in Chamonix which provide easy slopes for quick progression to intermediate and more advanced terrain.

There are six different beginner ski areas in Chamonix, as well as a further six green pistes and 30 blues pistes for those who are looking to progress on the mountain.

Chamonix centre has two low-altitude beginner ski areas which are easily accessible on foot or by bus, with bus stops right outside each one.

  • The 'Savoy' slope offers complete beginners a free magic carpet and two drag lifts (ski pass needed for drag lifts) and benefits from gentle, wide pistes to build confidence. There is a cafe here as well. For mixed group abilities, the Brevent gondola takes more confident skiers up the mountain where the home run from Brevent leads into the top of the Savoy beginners area (for easy meet-ups),
  • The 'Planards' slope has several drag lifts and a chairlift (ski pass needed) and is bigger than Savoy with runs of different difficulties to progress on. The restaurant has a large terrace and non-skiers can join.

Chamonix also has two larger mountain areas - Brevent and Flegere, merged by a liaison cable car. Brevent benefits from 2 green and 8 blue pistes and Flegere has 2 green and 3 blue pistes.

  • Brevent has a mini-funicular (Funi 2000) which is perfect for beginner skiers as it allows easy access to the green pistes from the main gondola. The Verte 2000 is the highest-altitude green run in Chamonix and is served by its own drag lift. From here you have various blue to progress on,
  • Flegere has a chairlift taking you to a few longer gentle green runs from the top of the gondola. They also have impressive views from them! Again, like Brevent, there are various blues to progress on.

The Brévent-Flégère skiing area is excellent for intermediates. Le Brévent offers some steep skiing from the top of the area and is perhaps a little tougher than Flégère’s terrain. Down the backside towards Flégère, the runs are steep, as is the off-piste.

La Flégère is known to the locals as 'rider’s paradise', with lots of fun runs, mostly fairly easy and big open off-piste sections. The Lachenal piste is a red run that’s almost black, giving good intermediates a technical challenge with its physically demanding, consistently steep upper section. The Lachenal bowl offers exceptional off-piste after fresh snowfall.

The Chavannes chairlift gives access to some easier blues runs and some gentler off-piste for those trying it out for the first time.

Advanced, off-piste & ski touring
Advanced to expert skiers will love the incomparable slopes and challenging range of skiing. Chamonix is the undisputed off-piste capital of Europe with some quite extraordinary experiences awaiting you on the Mont Blanc Massif. (note, the services of a local guide are essential, and bookable locally). There is also the famous Vallée Blanche for confident, energetic skiers. The Grands Montets pistes give access to exhilarating glacier runs. The large lift pass also covers the sunny neighbouring resort of Courmayeur. To get the best out of the area you really need a local guide.

Over the past few years in the Chamonix Valley, ski touring has become more and more popular. In order to facilitate training and practice, there are now 4 marked routes of different lengths and difficulty. After the effort, the reward is a gentle ski down the slopes!

Four marked itineraries (not patrolled) for different levels of ski tourers include (sescent via the ski slopes):

  • Les Houches - Prarion - elevation 841m,
  • Argentiere - Lognan via La Trapette - elevation 730m (not recommended for beginners),
  • Argentiere - Refuge de Lognan - elevation 800m,
  • Le Tour - Charamillon - elevation 358m.

Chamonix ski resort has long been known as the extreme free-riding capital of Europe. There are vast areas of accessible off-piste and natural half pipes, gullies galore, and plenty of varied terrain to suit any rider.

Chamonix nordic skiing

There are also 50km of marked trails for cross-country skiing, both classic and skating pistes – in the resorts of Les Houches, Chamonix, Argentière and Vallorcine. A detailed map of cross-country
skiing trails can be found at tourist offices or cross-country ski centres throughout the valley.

During the French holidays, the green track of the Bois du Bouchet, Chamonix, is free for evening sessions from 18:30 to 20:30.

Top activities to experience in Chamonix

Please note Peak Retreats do not book any activities and most activities are payable therefore the below is just for information. More detailed information and how to book can be found on the tourist office website

Aiguille du Midi
The Aiguille du Midi is a 3842m peak in the Mont Blanc massif of the French Alps. This is the closest you can get to the summit of Mont-Blanc without hiking or climbing and is served by an aerial lift system. The Aiguille du Midi cable car leaves from the centre of Chamonix Town (1035m) up to the summit of the Aiguile du Midi (3842m). 

Step into the Void ('Pas dans le vide')
The Chamonix Skywalk is open to the public at 3,842m. The Chamonix Skywalk is a glazed structure perched on the Aiguille du Midi, with a 1000m drop below, allowing visitors to truly step into the void. The structure is made entirely of glass to allow for maximum transparency, three glass plates of 12mm each are binded with a transparent film of the five faces, all held together by mechanical fasteners. The unit is then fixed to a vertical support structure over the void. The bespoke design has taken years of planning, development and testing by French engineers and German laboratories.

Chamonix Valley Resort news and resorts

What's new for 2023/24 season:

  • 100th anniversary since the 1st Winter Olympic Games - the birthplace of the first Winter Olympic Games in 1924, Chamonix is celebrating the 100th anniversary of this iconic event that greatly contributed to the resort’s international reputation,
  • Fuel savings - Chamonix has equipped the snow groomers at Flégère with differential GPS systems to optimize grooming plans and snow production. These enhancements have resulted in fuel savings of over
    13% compared to the previous winter. The tracking software will, therefore, be deployed at the Brévent and Balme sites starting in the winter of 2023-2024,
  • Cutting emissions - during the previous season, the Balme ski area tested HVO100 in its snow groomers.

As part of the reconfiguration of the site, a new gondola lift will be opening in December 2023 in order to transport visitors to the ice cave, or skiers arriving from the Vallée Blanche. The gondola will depart from the end platform of the Montenvers site and will arrive 600m up glacier. The existing 500 steps to access the glacier will no longer exist.
