Chalet Chanson is the perfect spot to enjoy one of the most spectacular skiing terrains in Europe.

Les Grands Montets offers excellent snow conditions and has slopes for every level. The formidable pistes of the Chamonix terrain attract first class skiers and thrill seekers alike and Les Grands Montets has the reputation of one of the best off-piste ski areas in the Alps.
Chamonix offers novice and intermediate skiers some wonderful training slopes and Les Houches is perfect for beginners with its large upper plateau.

Les Grands Montets has three distinctive zones, the lower mountain area between Argentière Village and the main station of Lognan at 1972m, the mixed alpine terrain from Lognan to Borchard at 2765m and the steeper alpine terrain which includes the Argentière glacier up to 3275m.

Much of the area is above the tree line with the upper skiing areas located on a glacier, accessed by a second cable car. The view from the top lift station jaw-dropping
There are 8 main lifts with 2 gondolas, 2 cable cars and 4 chair lifts and overall there are 4 black runs, 13 red runs, 8 blues and 2 green runs.

Chamonix is a fully functioning all year round resort. Les Grands Montets offers fabulous scenery, stunning landscapes, ice-falls in the Chamonix Valley, waterfalls and many paths to explore on foot or mountain bike making the area a wonderful place to see throughout the year. There are many attractions to enjoy including a cable car ride to the summit where you can enjoy the L’Aiguille Verte, Les Droites and Les Drus peaks or for a different thrill you can book a tandem paragliding flight from a 3220m altitude. Not to be missed is the snow garden situated at the top of Grands Montets, constructed and maintained by the piste team

The tree-top climbing Accro Adventure Park and rock-climbing crag in Lac des Gaillands are also not to be missed.

Argentière is a truly charming and authentic village located only a few minutes’ drive from the property. Argentière offers a wonderful selection of local restaurants, patisseries, shops and bars alongside a beautiful Baroque-style church.
Argentière is also home to several fantastic hiking paths you can climb up to Lac Blanc for stunning views of Mont Blanc!

The town of Chamonix is only eight minutes’ drive away and is utterly charming with its unique Victorian architecture and pedestrianised town centre. The town is buzzing from early evening when après ski time begins! From fine dining to dancing on tables there is something for everybody you will have an unforgettable apres ski time in this wonderful town!

The Resort

Chamonix is often preceded by its own reputation. As one of the most famous ski resorts in the world, it has visitors travelling from all corners of the world to experience the epic runs year after year. The Chamonix town centre, also known as Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, is an endlessly inviting little city with enough going on to entertain skiers and non-skiers alike for weeks on end. For those travelling from the UK, it is fabulously easy to reach. You can drive straight from Calais by motorway and be set up in a gorgeous chalet in less than half a day.

The Chamonix Valley encompasses five main ski areas on four different mountains (with easy transfers in between). You can get yourself a single-resort lift pass or one that encompasses the whole valley. If you go with the latter option you’ll even have access to the Italian side of the valley in Courmayeur. The wider area encompasses 106 pistes at up to 3842m altitude and unparalleled off-piste runs. 

Most of Chamonix’s ski areas are best suited to those who already feel at home on a pair of skis. Beginners definitely won’t get as much out of this valley as those who are comfortable tackling a black run. But that’s not saying Chamonix is unromantic by any means. There is incredible scenery for everyone to enjoy, from non-skiers to experts, and nature lovers will fall in love with the Chamonix in summer too. Ski season, however, often lasts until mid-March.

Once the skiing is over at the end of the day you’ll still find plenty to keep you occupied in town. There is an excellent selection of restaurants to choose from, ranging from Michelin starred fine dining to street food that will line your stomach for the après-ski (and rest assured there are dozens of great bars and clubs to choose from!)

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Chamonix is an excellent ski resort with slopes for all levels of skiers and there are excellent facilities for the kids.

There are several ski schools that specialise in teaching children from the age of 3. Children can be signed up for half or full days with upgrades available to include childcare before or after the lesson and lunch if required. There are also nursery facilities and children’s clubs for fun activities. Chamonix offers plenty of other activities for children that do not ski and for children under the age of 3. Babies and toddlers can get a taste for some downhill action on the small slopes in Chamonix with free slopes behind the tennis court and next to the cross-country tracks. Sledges can be taken onto dedicated slopes at Les Planards or at the top of Prarion in Les Houches. Many of the ski hire shops will sell or rent sledges.

Chamonix’s Alpine Coaster is great fun. Children can ride the luge along the 1300m track at the bottom of the Les Planards beginner ski area in the town centre. Children can ride from 3 years old and unaccompanied from 7 years old.

For the ultimate treat why not take the kids for a husky ride. Every Wednesday, subject to snow conditions, you can learn to drive your own sled from 8 years old or enjoy the ride as a passenger from any age. This is a really popular attraction so do book in advance to avoid disappointment!

Paret sledging is a thrilling adventure in traditional wooden sledges with one runner. Children aged 12 and above and adults brave enough, can take part from the upper slopes of Grands Montets. Older kids can take part in a Deluxe Igloo and Fondue Adventure, riding a 3km sledging track and hiking in snowshoes to a real snow igloo for a traditional cheese fondue.

Get your learning caps on and discover France’s largest glacier. It’s a real fun day to take the red cog Montenvers train up the side of the mountain to the historic station at the top, here you will find yourself immersed in a world of ice. The train leaves from the centre of Chamonix, behind the main SNF train station and takes 20 minutes to the top. Here there are jaw dropping views of the Mer de Glace glacier. Don’t miss the ice cave which is carved into the glacier or the glaciorium and crystal gallery.

Chamonix has plenty of indoor activities too. You could check out the sports centre for ice skating and a swimming pool with a fun zone including slides, rapids and massaging jets. Or maybe discover the history of the Chamonix valley at the Alpine Museum, the budding pioneers can learn about beginnings of mountaineering and the first ascent of Mont Blanc. If it’s time to just relax why not enjoy the latest blockbuster at Chamonix’s multiscreen cinema, the Cinema Vox, many of the films in English.
