Les Houches lies around 5 km down the valley from Chamonix-Mont-Blanc town centre and its ski domain extends from an altitude of 950 metres up to 1900 metres.

Les Houches is the location of regular international events and is home to the Kandahar World Downhill Ski Championships. This race has become one of the main sporting events in the Chamonix valley and is representative of the excellent skiing reputation that Chamonix possesses. Les Houches also serves as a training ground for the French National Ski Team. The area consists of 1 international black run, 12 red runs, 5 blue runs and 4 green runs, cross-country trails, and a snow park.

Lonely Planet describes the Chamonix valley as “ensnared by scenery so mind-blowingly spectacular it’s practically Himalayan - think deeply crevassed glaciers pointing towards a valley from the icy crown of mighty Mont Blanc. It was here that the first Winter Olympics happened in 1924.'

Other Activities: Plenty of choice of children and family friendly activities

Ski: Located between the altitude of 950 metres and up to 1900 metres, the skiing in Les Houches combines long descents through pretty tree-lined slopes, with amazing views of the Mont Blanc massif and the Chamonix valley.

Most of the skiing is through pine and larch forests which makes the skiing here more charming than the more exposed areas further up the valley, but also the trees offer shelter when the winds are high elsewhere, and definition when the snow is coming down or during white-out conditions.

Unlike in other parts of the Chamonix valley the ski-out is open throughout the season thanks to the great snow cannon coverage on the sheltered lower runs.

Les Houches is a great area for mixed ability groups, as the slopes at the top of the mountain range from green nursery slopes right through to the famous “Verte” black run used in the Kandahar World Cup skiing!
