Amazing view

It took some time to get up here due to queues in the lift, but it is worth waiting for. Amazing view and a nice ride down again in deep snow.

On a good day, Les Grands Montets ski area is the best in the world. Famous long, steep descents, glacier skiing from the top, open bowls of powder. However, years and years of relying on reputation, the allure of Chamonix, Mont Blanc and ski films from the 60s have left Les Grands Montets with a hopelessly out of date lift... More

The black run from the top is not for the feint hearted but if you are a confident 'black' skier and love the challenge of a raw mountain challenge don't miss this one. There a views to die for and miles of fabulous steep moguls. If you are lucky enough to time your visit with fresh powder there are few... More

Lovely resort with skiing for all levels. Check the map as some lifts take you to black slopes only. If you are not confident avoid those ones. The lifts were efficient and not crowded in late January

For serious skiers, who like powder off piste skiing without having to trek miles or use helicopters this is the PERFECT resort. Literally every square metre of this amazing mountain is skiable. You can ski here for 2 weeks and not get bored. Not a place for beginners though, and you have to be at least good intermediate to really... More

Enough on-piste for anyone who wants it but the off-piste is sensational. LOTS of places to get into powder. I recommend Bouchard. Go left or right, either way you can find amazing off-piste. A guide is a good idea but not absolutely required. You should definitely have avy gear though. The top of grand montet is pretty nice as well.... More

A great area, sadly during our stay the weather was not the best. Great runs and we look forward to returning in the not too distant future.

For skiing it is great with a lot of snow, whether you are a beginner or a pro. Outstanding views. Outstanding off-piste. Supreme facilities. The prices are a bit high, but it's France and it's Chamonix. One pays for quality, not quantity.

We went to so many ski slopes in this area, id say Les Grands Montets was very good but not the best one we visited. Still worth a visit though

I visited on 26th and 27th Dec 2025 when snow conditions were poor. Conspired to Les Houches this is a far better slopes. In fact there is no comparison. However, on 27th it took me 3 hours to catch the ski lift back. The main ski lift broke down in the afternoon and the smaller one was left to bear... More
