For those who are used to stay in four stars do not expect to meet the same level of performance here. It hardly reaches three for comfort and barely two for services. But the price certainly does fit in the four star range with well over 3000€ for four persons two adults plus two children for a week in just... More

Make sure you go to the top on a clear day! Even if you don't ski down, you can make a trip to the top for the spectacular views. Our favorite ski run of the mountain, though I would be sure to do it on a day with good visibility first. Note that the markers are set along glaciers, so... More

There are lovely long red runs but very little use of snow canons and piste grooming was poor. They need many more mountain huts and to improve the very few existing ones.

Perfect place for hours of skiing. Many different pists for a wide range of asking skills. Challenging slopes for advanced skiers and easy slopes for beginners. Fantastic view at 3200 m summit. Very good ski rental.

If you are brave enough (a capable enough ski-er), then take the cable car up to the very top of Grand Montets ski resort and ski down. It gives you such a fantastic view and the ski down, although sometimes icy and always freezing cold, always reminds me why these mountains are so incredible. Be careful though of the ice... More

In Chamonix area. Good grand montets gondola, and some of the best lift system in the area. High level skiing, with great pistes for advanced riders.

We spent a day skiing in Argentiere whilst staying in Chamonix. Was definitely the best skiing we experienced whilst there. Would recommend paying the extra to go up to the top of The Grand Montets as well!

Not for beginners or the feint hearted this is a serious resort for good skiers. Snow wasn't great when I was there but that added to the challenge; concentrate hard and avoid the rocks to earn a beer or two at the end of the day.
