OFF-PISTES Skiing in chamonix

Chamonix has so much to offer to all downhill lovers, on piste or off-piste, from beginners to experts, from freeriders to freestylers, all should find what they are looking for. We are lucky to be located right at the foot of the Grands Montets ski area which is renowned for some of the best off piste and powder skiing in the world. You can get a lift up to 3300m and ski right down to the hotel at one go if your legs can take it! We are also located very close to a beginner ski area where children and adults alike can find their marks before moving on to more challenging slopes.

With the right snow conditions, off piste skiing provides new and thrilling sensations ! Amongst others, the beautiful off-piste Pas de Chevre itinerary, starts at the top of Grands Montets and should only be attempted with a mountain guide in order to avoid getting lost in the mountain. (Site)
After gliding down the snow fields of this breathtaking descent which leads right down to the Mer de Glace glacier, you will need to walk up its other bank before skiing back down to Chamonix by a track that zigzags through the forest.
