Skiing Les Houches: Les Houches is the largest of five separate ski areas in the Chamonix valley and was host to the world cup downhill in January 2003. The skiing is very pretty with many mini off-piste runs through the trees. It is primarily intermediate in standard although there are some pleasant and relatively easy ‘blues’ for second year skiers. It is linked to the other ski areas by a free bus service.
