The Ski Resort
Les Grands Montets is the largest and most famous area of the ski area Chamonix-Mont-Blanc.
The resort has the reputation of having some of the steepest and most difficult slopes within Europe.
Naturally, there is also a great number of wide and well groomed slopes for sportsmen at beginner and intermediate levels.
The higher skiing area of the resort, which has its highest point at 3300m above sea level, is situated within a glacier area, which makes it essential to take good care to stay on track at all time. The north-facing slopes will not provide you with a great suntan however you can be sure that snowconditions are well-preserved until the end of season.
The divers and partly challenging slopes will provide a unique skiing adventure for anyone whilst especially the off-piste skiing opportunities seem to be unlimited.
- Elevated between 4052 ft and 10827 ft, the Ski Resort is among the 10 highest elevated Ski Resorts in France. The vertical drop from summit to base is 6775 ft. The average difference in altitude between base and summit of Ski Resorts in France is 2644 ft. Most runs are therefore relatively long.
- Snow coverage is usually best during March, offering an average snow depth of 40 " at summit elevation and 36 " at the base. Therefore Les Grands Montets (Vallée de Chamonix) is among the 10 ski Resorts with best snow conditions in France.
