The snow was dreadful and whilst i understand that you cannot control the weather there was very little being done to make artificial snow. Lots of rocks poking through and very icy conditions with only a handful of runs open. On the face of it Chamonix is a huge area but it is made up with a number of smaller... More

went skiing last week of December; plenty of snow but too icy and crowded; AVOID it when the locals tell you its icy.

My husband and I visited for a long weekend 17th and 18th December. We had a lovely weekend of skiing where it was clear that the staff had been working to ensure good snow coverage for that area. We covered what was possible, easily and we had fun. It was marred slightly by the rudeness of one lady on our... More

Great effort to open for the weekends a little early due to the early snow - 2 runs open and plenty on the slopes even though it was before most “seasonaires” arrived.

This lift offers excellent access to the mountain and nearby glasier. The staff were friendly and the facilities clean.

Got the cable car up to Lognan and then walked up to the glacier. Loads of snow made it a walk that I will never forget. The glacier was even more impressive. Incredible to be so close. Will be visiting again

We stayed in Argentiere (up the valley from Chamonix) and the balcony of our Hotel Le Dahu faced this mountain. A good start. We took the chairs to the top and, while warm in Argentiere inJuly, we were happy we had winter gear because it was close to freezing up there. But worth it. The views were magnificent. So magnificent... More

Argentiere is at one end of the Chamonix valley and therefore a little away from the main town and population. This is a plus as we did not need to queue. The views from the top are stunning, like much of the Chamonix area. The Argentiere glacier and the Grand Montets are impressive sights and of course you are able... More
