Decided to travel to the Grand Montets with no disappointment. The views were breath taking and it was extremely hot. We were prepared for cold temperatures but ended up just wearing a t-shirt and walking trousers. Would highly recommend as a must visit.

Augilis du Midi is popular, but also crowded. I visited Les Des Mondes on August 25th and found it free of crowd. The walk in the snow was awesome. There are unsupervised areas for your own trekking, hiking, gliding... The restaurant at the top serves very delicious hot soup.

I did these cable cars and surrounding walks about 15 years ago. This year I took my son and greyhound. We went straight to the top and we're all thrilled with the pristine white snow. There is an area cordoned off and both dog and son had a lovely time bounding around! We went back down to the middle stage... More

It's no so popularly as Aguille du Mudi but I like it more. It' simply beautiful. From the Lognan cable car station short walk to the glacier.

Les Grands Montets has always been our favorite Chamonix ski area (although technically it is in Argentiere therefore further away from Chamonix town than the Brevent or Flegere. More advanced skiers will enjoy it most. A very wide and diverse terrain, great powder skiing when there isfresh powder, lots of ' safe off piste' close by the pistes. Etc. Les... More

The Montets is truly one of the great ski resorts on the planet. Vertical drop from 3300 metes down to 1250 metres. Great pistes and better off piste. Find a local or use a guide to get the best of it. It has its faults, on a powder day its crazy busy from first light, it can be bitterly cold... More

There are many ski slopes around Chamonix. We enjoyed this one the most. That being said, the first things to consider are the level of difficulty, weather conditions and crowds. Unlike most of the ski resorts in the United States, weather conditions at each of these mountains can cause dramatic changes and even the altitude matters. Locals are able to... More

This was on of the more popular ski areas in Chamonix due to the variety of runs available, so good for skiers of all abilities. lt also maintains its snow for long due to its aspect.
