We went up the Grands Montets before setting off walking. The views are spectacular as they overlook Mont Blanc and the Aiguille Du Midi and the famous Vallee Blanch.

This is a 2 cable car lift with fantastic views at the top. Unfortunately some cloud drifted in when we were there obscuring the views to Mont Blanc and the Aiguille du Midi, but there were still spectacular ones over the top of the Argentiere glacier. It is worth stopping on the way down at Lognan to walk to the... More

Great pistes, good lifts, snow good. Slopes were a bit steep for beginners and intermediates lacking in confidence. Don't go here on day 1 of your holiday after a 5 year gaps since last hitting the slopes!

This was my favorite of the Chamonix area resorts. The views up here couldn't be beat, and they had a ski/snowboard cross course that quickly became my favorite thing to do. 25 seconds of pure adrenaline!

We hired a guide (Maya - an adorable Finnish woman who is one of the best skiers I've ever met) and skied off-piste in and on the glaciers. The powder was amazing and the views were mind-blowing. Really - this place is GORGEOUS!!

We skied here several days during our week long ski trip to Chamonix. It is one of the largest areas with more lifts and skiing options than any of the other areas. The week we were there they has a live band and bar set up by one of the high speed chair lifts at the mid-mountain point. The bands... More

No new snow over the week I was in the area but still thoroughly enjoyed piste skiing around Grands Montet for 1.5 days. Plenty of off piste but very hard on body and skis. Be perfect after new snow. Mostly intermediate with some great cruising red and black runs

Lovely sunny slopes in March powder conditions. Breathtaking views from the top. Two look out points. Great cable cars and gondola.

We were seven friends with all from beginners to advanced skiers. This place had something for everyone even though there are more difficult slopes than easy ones. But definitely go there!
