Domaine Evasion Mont Blanc Ski Area

 

A lesser known area that deserves greater recognition as it is the 3rd largest area in France with 445km (276 miles) of piste served by 107 ski lifts and featuring the resorts of Megeve, St Gervais, Les Contamines, Combloux, La Giettaz and St Nicolas de Veroce.  You can also link into Les Houches and onwards to the Chamonix valley via the Tramway du Mont Blanc from St Gervais. The lift pass price is reasonable for such a large area and the atmosphere that of genuine French market towns and villages and not of purpose built ski resorts .  If you are looking for authenticity where French is still spoken in the bars and shops this is the place ! 

The area is one of the easiest to reach from Geneva airport , just 86km so an easy 45 minutes motorway drive and then just 7 minutes up the hill to St Gervais. 

The area is less well known as there are no major tour operators bringing the mass market to the area, however there are plenty of like minded independent travellers and the range of villages means you will find a holiday to suit almost every person and pocket. From the uber rich clientele of Megeve to the family friendly resort of Les Contamines – there is something for everyone. This also applies to the skiing which is varied to suit all abilities and the traditional villages makes this a great destination in the summer months too with a range of activities for everyone.

 

 

 

Les Houches Ski Resort

Nestled in the heart of the Mont-Blanc Massif, the Les Houches village-resort (950 m - 1900 m) offers you an outstanding panoramic view of the Aiguilles de Chamonix; it has 55kms of piste and 18 ski lifts.

 

One of its attractions is the chance of skiing down its legendary «La Verte des Houches», the World Cup downhill piste, but if you don’t fancy that, then try gliding peacefully along trails opened up through the forest. This is essentially a family resort, and in spite of development is essentially faithful to the traditional image of mountain holidays.

 

It has its own ski area separate to Chamonix and has gained an international reputation due mainly to the World Cup downhill piste, but the resort is also an ideal terrain for learners. In particular there is a new beginners’ area at the top of the Le Prarion gondola, equipped with a chairlift and «magic carpet».

 

The slopes amount to the biggest single area in the valley, with varied tree lined runs that make the best place to go when bad weather closes the other areas. But the area is not covered by the standard Chamonix pass (you need a local pass or the Skipass Mont Blanc). The forest trails are a delight for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, as is the Bellevue snowpark for freestyle enthusiasts. It also offers 10 km of Nordic trails in the resort. Les Chavants site offers free access to cross-country skiers.

 

Les Houches itself is a quiet, pleasant village at the entrance to the Chamonix valley – well-positioned for exploring the region and great for short breaks. The resort has an old core with a pretty church, but modern developments in chalet style have spread along the road at the foot of the slopes, with the result that some of them are quite a walk from the lifts. There are a number of bars and restaurants, though evenings are generally quiet and relaxed.
