Ski Les Contamines

A Superb Position At The Western End Of The Mont Blanc Range

High on the Aiguille Croche (2487m) at the top of Les Contamines resort. Great terrain...in good weather!

Brilliant Off Piste Journey Linking The Aiguille Croche & Grevattaz

A beautiful 900m descent with great open slopes up high and lovely wooded glades lower down. A Contamines classic!

Great January Powder On The Superb Journey From Roslette To Belleville

This superb off piste journey offers many variations according to conditions and preferences. Today in mid Jan 2016 the powder was superb but the avalanche risk considerable, so a more mellow line was taken. Very open on the upper slopes with meadows and trees lower down.

Perfect Powder On The Descent To Grevattaz (1577m)

This tow and a few others offer some tree lined slopes if the visibility deteriorates. Many of the fine higher slopes are best avoided in poor visibility as there are few reference points and lots of hollows and bumps!
