Description

These resort ski tours are the perfect way of getting some exercise and a bit of stress-free outdoor time in the world's best known mountain region. The peaks around Mont Blanc are legendary for their height and steepness, but there are some cruisy options in the Haute Savoie too, and this guidebook showcases some of them.

Centred around Chamonix, this guidebook contains resort ski tours in some of France's most famous resorts - Grands Montets, Megève and Les Houches are all in here, as are a few lesser known - and quieter - gems.

One final thing - resort touring takes place, by definition, in a ski resort. Before doing any of these tours, make sure that you’re allowed to do so at that time. With grooming machines driving around, and resorts entitled to stop tourers using their runs if the rules are ignored, please stick to the restrictions of each resort. We want to be able to keep ski touring next season and all the ones after that - as on every ski day, the goal should always be to “ski tomorrow”!

Don't stop on his name: the heartbreak is not so inaccessible! The effort associated with the significant difference in altitude is compensated by the fairly gentle slope and the magnificent arrival at the summit.
