Brévent-Flégère 1030-2525m

30 km of pistes

These 2 ski areas have been linked by a cable and offer one of the most outstanding panoramas of the Alps.

To advise the morning, south-facing slopes with a wonderful variety of pistes and enviable views over the Mont-Blanc Massif.

Brévent is the ski area close to Chamonix center

My favorite: "Crochues" at the end of the field of Flégère, "Lachenal" is not bad either.

Les Grands Montets 1235- 3275m

30km of pistes near Argentière

Aspect North, In the shadow in the morning

Top of The Grands Montets accessible only with the Mont-Blanc Unlimited (Chamonix Le Pass: + 10€). Reservations recommended.

From the summit one has a spectacular 360° view.

Must-ski: don't miss the superb Point de Vue black pite that runs alongside the Grands Montets and finishes at the bottom of Argentière Glacier.

To do only in good weather.

My favorite:« Belle place » to Vallorcine from La tête de Balme
