Argentiere

Argenitere in winter skiing holidays
Chamonix's Premiere Ski Area for Winter Ski Holidays

During your holiday if you prefer to stay in a village with a more laid back atmosphere Argentiere (1250m) is a great choice. It’s the biggest village in the valley and is considered one of the foremost alpine ski resorts due to its location at the foot of Les Grands Montets ski resort. It has a great character of its own, with brightly coloured buildings, lively bars and restaurants.

Grands Montets skiing
SKIING
In the winter visitors pick this town to stay in as you can walk directly to the Grand Montets ski lifts and if you are up early enough for the first lifts experience deep untouched powder!
There is amazing off-piste skiing on the glacier and also many mogul fields for those who like a challenge.

In general the resort offers intermediate to advanced skiing with groomed pistes red and black runs. They are diverse with open bowls and also tight tree sections. It is the first and last Chamonix ski area to open and close for the winter season.
There is a small park with table tops and boarder-cross once the season accumulates enough snow.

There is a fun ski school for children, The Panda Ski Club, which is popular for skiing families.
