Ski Le Tour

Le Tour is a small hamlet at 1460m at the Eastern end of the Chamonix Valley en route to the Swiss Border. Infact the Col de Balme high in the resort is the border itself.  It's a super domain for off piste skiing and touring with options in the trees and on steep open slopes and couloirs higher up.  Great skiing.

Ski Les Houches

Les Houches is usually at its best, and busiest on the days when the heavy snow shuts down the rest of the Chamonix Valley due to avalanche risk. This often happens a few days each winter - and these days can be some of the best of the season - if you know where to go. Les Houches is a good bet as are the nearby resorts of St. Gervais & Combloux which are a bit lower and less steep.

Ski Marbrées Couloir

Approaching the Col de Rodhefort & Couloir Marbrees

With the magnificent Dent du Geant beyond. Note that this team is 'booting' up the glacier without being roped. This is not recommended. There are some large crevasses crossed on the approach and a winter snow cover is no gaurantee of strong crevasse bridges. Climb up on skis with skins on and rope up.
