About Off-Piste in Chamonix
Chamonix is famous for its fantastic off-piste skiing, as well as the really obvious stuff between the pistes, there’s plenty more off piste which is within easy reach for just a little bit of effort.
There is some excellent off-piste to be had at Grands Montets, Brevent & Flegere, Le Tour and even at Les Houches. With just a short hike up, a small traverse across a piste or just playing inbetween the markers you can enjoy some lovely powder and fun terrain.
Always make sure you are prepared before embarking on some off-piste skiing, check out our Avalanche Safety page for tips on what to do before setting off. It is also always advisable to hire an off-piste guide who will have extensive knowledge of the area and the mountains.
Please note: you ignore safety warnings and barriers/ropes and undertake off-piste skiing/boarding at your own risk. We always recommend that you take a mountain guide when heading off-piste.
