Best tips for Grands Montets-Argentière (Chamonix)
An old village in a splendid setting at the head of the Chamonix valley – below the Grands Montets. The Glacier d’Argentière pokes down towards it and the Aiguille du Midi and Mont Blanc dominate the scene down the valley. There’s a lot of modern development, but the village retains a certain rustic appeal and there are plenty of informal hotels, bars and restaurants. A cable car and chairlift access the Grands Montets – for many, the most acclaimed slopes in the valley. The couloirs, gullies and abundant off-piste appeal mainly to experts, but confident intermediates can tackle the steep black and red pistes. Argentière is a handy base for reaching the easier slopes at Balme too, above the tiny village of Le Tour. Regular buses serve all the main ski areas, but they can get crowded and aren’t always reliable.
- Convenient slope-side lodging
