Le Brevent and La Flegere (2525m) on the sunny south-facing side of the Chamonix Valley are the closest skiing areas to Chamonix’s main town centre.
With some of the most scenic pistes in the valley, offering panoramic views of Mont Blanc, the Brevent and Flegere ski area has pistes to suit every style of skier (see the piste map). From long flowing groomed runs to steep skiing and even longer winding descents to the valley floor, you will find the locals up here enjoying lapping the pistes or jumping off the cat tracks on a powder day.
For many years these two areas were separate until the introduction of the Liaison cable car in 1997 linked them together to create one larger area. Access to Brevent is by a gondola just above Chamonix town, and Flegere is served by a cable car from the village of Les Praz.
