Argentière FR

Ski Argentière and you're in the Chamonix Valley ski area. From the excellent ski school for children to access to one of the best expert ski resorts in the world, there's five mountains at your fingertips on one ski pass.

Where?

Ski Argentière and you are located close to the town of Chamonix in France and thanks to the five mountain slopes you get every conceivable terrain for skiing and snowboarding. You can get to Argentière and Chamonix very easy with flights to Geneva or by rail, but you will need a car to navigate the different slope areas otherwise there's a lot of buses to negotiate. Transfer times from Geneva are around the 90 minutes if you know the way!

WE LIKE

  • Skiing and snowboarding available for all abilities - runs are awesome with regular snow dumps and amazing scenic views
  • Beginners are very well catered for, at Les Chosalets and with the Panda Club
  • A quieter resort away from Chamonix, would suit families - but is a little exclusive

WE DON'T LIKE

  • ot the largest area in the Chamonix Valley - but you can get buses to other areas like the Balme Area or Les Praz
  • Expensive area with lift pass and eating out - especially with poor exchange rates
  • Ski areas not interconnected - so you can't simply ski all day traversing them all. Need to get to Chamonix for most other facilities eg swimming pool.

On the slopes

Given the fact that there are five additional ski areas when you ski Argentière, there are more than enough slopes for skiing and snowboarding whatever your ability. Close to home there's around 30km of slopes evenly split between green, blue, red and black. However the Chamonix valley is best known for its challenging expert trails. In fact, it is often considered the best ski resort in the entire world for expert skiers since it has 14 expert trails over 155km of pistes with stunning views to match the stunning thrill of gliding down them.

As mentioned there are other options since the range is made up of five ski areas with 36 beginner slopes and 31 advanced trails throughout the ski area. Snowboarders also welcome the challenges of the larger 'Chamonix' resort with two parks as well for tricks. There are 20 chairs throughout the park and five gondolas but beware, a few of them require money to take in between mountains so you will not want to head up the slopes empty handed. There's also night skiing available, but the slopes do get tracked out so it can be touch and go to try out.

Ski area

If you ski Argentière you are also in the ski region of the Chamonix Valley .

Off the slopes

Due to the 12 small villages surrounding the mountains around the Argentière ski resort there are plenty of après ski activities to take part in if you need to spend some time off the slopes. The town of Chamonix in particular has plenty of bars, nightclubs, and discotheques to keep everyone entertained every day of the week. There are also plenty of restaurants for those who want to make sure to get some French cuisine while on holiday and plenty of large and small budget stores around the towns as well. Argentière itself is a relatively quiet alpine village with some great bars and restaurants - enough for anyone!
