Chamonix The Ski Domain
Connected by a cable car, the Brévent and Flégère ski areas are one of the most beautiful sites in the Alps. Facing south, they invite you to come enjoy various tracks facing the Mont-Blanc range.
Brevent ski area
The Brévent sector is the southern slope of the Chamonix Valley ski area.
From Chamonix, it is accessible via the gondola that takes you to Plan Praz (1999 m), then via the Brévent cable car that takes you up to 2525 m.
Once at the top of the Brévent cable car, you find yourself facing the majestic Mont-Blanc (take the time to contemplate one of the most beautiful views of the Alps).
As for skiing, the Brévent sector is for skiers of all levels (even if beginners will have to settle for a single green slope). The southern exposure of the tracks implies a strong sunshine very appreciable on cold days.
Among the coolest tracks, note the black Charles Bozon that winds from Brévent to Plan Praz (which is still 525 meters vertical – not bad for a single track!)
Flégère ski area
From the village of Praz, the Flegere cable car gives you access to the area of the same name. By following the index chairlift, you will quickly reach the summit of the estate at an altitude of 2595 meters.
South-facing, the Flégère ski area offers varied ski slopes, suitable for all categories of skiers, and ideally drawn facing the Mont Blanc range.
We particularly recommend the black run from La Flégère to Praz (800 meters of vertical drop through the spruce forest), but the Flégère also offers excellent off-piste spots (the Lachenal combe, the head Aubuy ..).

Cross-country lovers, you can practice cross-country skiing in the heart of the Chamonix Valley thanks to the different routes, whatever your level.
The valley offers two magnificent sets of trails for cross-country skiing, in Argentière on the one hand and from the center of Chamonix to the hamlet of Les Bois on the other.
The network of tracks is very well maintained, of all levels, with artificial snow of quality
