If you’re new to skiing start with the gentle yet popular nursery slopes that can be found nearby Chamonix in Les Planards in the Savoy area. Within no time you’ll be able to venture to the Chamonix valley with its 150km of pistes divided into four areas. These areas are linked by a swift bus service which is free to use with your lift pass. Try the testing blue and red runs which are high altitude and great for those who want to get the adrenalin pumping! The Grands Montents glaciers are the place to be for supreme snow. For those who’d like to take in the most stunning scenery take a guided ski tour through 24km of awe inspiring landscapes. To help you get up the mountainside there are 42 lifts in place throughout Chamonix, including a mix of chairlifts, draglifts and cabin lifts.
