One of Brussels best music venues. Photography is banned.
Concentration of lifts, cafes, ski hire and ski shop. Free WiFi.
The piste follows most of the FIS Coupe Du Monde course. BMW filmed slalom from the start hut in 2015.
Compact apartments that sleep 4. You need to be tidy and organised as they are not spacious. Well located next to Chamonix Sud bus stop.
Great choice of food and drink with beautiful views over the Haute Fagnes (peat rich heathland).
Good ambiance. On a warm day try and get a table on the pavement in place St Boniface.
Free WiFi and good reasonably priced food. Close to Bellevue cable car and bus stop.
Car free resort with one horse sleigh taxis in the day. Snowboarders have been welcome here for years. Try out the Stash or one of the many other snowparks or boarder cross runs.
Has the highest bottom lift station in the Chamonix valley. Sadly, it's a little exposed to the sun melting the home run piste by the end of March / early April.
Good gateway to the Grand Massif ski area. Connected to Cluses train and bus station by a regular bus service.
Beware because there is an alighting station half way up. Stay on until top station.
There are some famous mountaineers and guides lying here. Look up the descriptive panel near the entrance. Some of the other memorials make sobering reading if you're headed up the mountains.
A good choice of access to Les Grands Montets now it is a telecabine.
Beginner slopes. Also end of Nants piste and landing area for paragliding when posted have melted.
Black piste starting near the summit of Brevent. If there is enough snow ski / snowboard down to the town via Nants piste.
If you are approaching from Brevent try not to kill too much speed on a snowboard. Very useful lift.
In summer the plateau is very Rocky, but in winter is host to a variety of wide posted.
