Ski: Located in the Mont Blanc Region, Les Contamines has a great ski area with 120km of uncrowded, well-groomed pistes (most above 1900m) and an excellent snow record. In fact, the snow record is so good that neighbouring resorts like Megeve come to use our pistes late in the season. The pistes are confidence-inspiring for beginners and intermediate skiers. Les Contamines is famous for its off-piste ski-ing, where the sounds of lifts and people disappear! There is a snow park for boarders, and a good selection of mountain restaurants. The slopes are easily accessible with the lifts only a few minutes' drive away. There is an excellent ski school, with English speaking instructors. For the more adventurous the famous Vallee Blanche is within half an hours' drive. Other winter activities available in the village include: ski de fond/Nordic, snow-mobiling, snow-shoeing, curling, ice-skating & dog-sledding.
