Some of the most scenic pistes in Chamonix, set to satisfy all abilities.
Sunny south-facing slopes and glorious views of the Mont Blanc massif make Brévent-Flégère “an [unrivaled] panorama of the ‘roof’ of Europe and its surrounding summits," according to Chamonix.com.
Views aside, the skiing at Brévent-Flégère is awesome. These two ski areas joined by cable car have a huge range of on and off-piste terrain to suit every style of skier. There’s a staggering 1500m of skiable vertical and nearly 60km of piste trails, from long meandering groomed runs, to hair-raisingly steep descents.
Known for its gnarly runs, Brévent is definitely set up for advanced skiers who’ve got a thirst for speed and are looking for a challenge. Flégère, on the other hand, has more to offer intermediate skiers. Affectionately referred to by locals as "riders paradise," Flégère has wide sweeping pistes, fun cat tracks to jump off, and freeriders can get their thrills at the Flégère bowl.
Before heading down after a hard day’s ski, relax into a deckchair at one of the resort’s many bars, and watch the sun gently disappear behind the Mont Blanc glaciers.
Brévent-Flégère is the closest ski area to Chamonix’s main town centre.
The two ski areas are connected by the Liaison cable car which runs high above the valley, and the combined ski area is served by 16 main lifts. You can get to Brévent by taking the gondola from Chamonix town, and Flégère is reachable by a cable car from the village of Les Praz.
