Chamonix offers a lot for the aspiring freerider, with over 75% of the action away from the well groomed and marked pistes. A good dumping of snow transforms Chamonix into one of the best off-piste destinations in the world.
Most people ease themselves in with the Vallée Blanche which offers stunning views of the surrounding Alps. It runs right down into Chamonix which makes it a great way to end the day. For more challenging terrain head to the Aguille du Midi or the Grande Montets, these will really test your abilities to the limit. For the latter, make sure you’re there early in order to beat the crowds. Once there you’ll see why it’s so popular.
