HomeWinter activities - Balme ski field


A sunny and family-friendly ski area ! It can be reached either from Le Tour or from Vallorcine. The Le Tour side of the ski area offers a lovely view on the entire Chamonix valley, as well as the Aiguilles Rouges and Mont Blanc massifs. It also hosts a filmed and timed slalom stadium which is not to be missed ! The Vallorcine side of the mountain offers lots of nice forest trails, steeper slopes and secret off-piste areas! A red run zigzags through the forest right back down to Vallorcine where you can enjoy a well-deserved glass of mulled wine or perhaps a fondue !

With its three draglifts, La Vormaine beginner ski area in the village of Le Tour is the ideal place for experiencing your first turns and tumbles on skis, interspersed with pancake and hot chocolate breaks on the snack bar's sunny terrace.
