Has to be one of the most accessible and dramatic glacier skis on the planet. Views that will blow you away. An interesting start via the Aiguille lift and down the arete! Do it before the glacier recedes even further.

An amazing experience that any good skier should consider. If you don't know much about backcountry skiing and don't have the necessary equipment - hire a local guide. They'll provide everything you need. Beautiful scenery, worth every penny.

See it while you can....Like most of the world's glaciers, it's receding pretty rapidly. Amazing views all the way down, snow is usually fantastic at the top, plenty of fresh lines (if you know where you're going/have a guide, as it can be dangerous), the...More

Les Houches is not in the central Chamonix area - the free bus service will get you to the central town of Chamonix itself and to the other ski areas - but if I had the choice I'd stay in Chamonix itself. Yes it will be more... More
