Skiing Information: The skiing in the Chamonix Valley is spread over 5 separate areas which are linked by a regular and efficient bus service included in the lift pass. At the base of the Valley is Les Houches, best known for relaxed easy to intermediate runs with hidden restaurants, great off run trails through the trees. Also holds annual downhill world cup. Brévent is close to Chamonix centre, in turn linked to La Flégère. Up the valley is Les Grands Montets at Argentière and finally Le Tour. As the valley cuts through the highest mountains in Europe, the skiing in Chamonix has a reputation for being among the best available. This reputation is built on the fact that Chamonix Mont Blanc has the world's biggest skiable vertical drop that is served by lifts (2807m). It also boasts one of the world's longest runs - 22 km through the Vallée Blanche - and staged the World's first Winter Olympics in 1924. People have been skiing here since 1893 and one of the first cable cars in the world opened in 1907.
