Chamonix is famous for its challenging skiing and off-piste terrain. The king of freeride resorts you will find runs that are steep, high and long as well as the famous Vallée Blanche glacier run with its dramatic scenery.

For the less adventurous there is a good mix of intermediate skiing and some nursery slopes either side of the resort.
