Fantastic Off Piste Skiing conditions
So why not start by show casing the ultra modern lift system the Chamonix Valley has to offer? There are now no queues to access the mythical off-piste skiing at the top of Les Grands Montets. The lift company had a novel solution to the queuing , instead of building a new modern lift , they got someone to set fire to the existing one thus removing the need to queue.
So now to ski on the Argentiere glacier you have to walk, which is 100% more pleasant than standing in the old cable car queue for about the same amount of time.
We enjoyed a wonderful descent and a late lunch at the Chalet Lognon overlooking the massive ice fall.
We finished our time together by skiing in La Giettaz , where there snow always seems to be fantastic.
