Brévent is accessed from the Planpraz gondola, found at the top of the Le Brevent hill in Chamonix town. The area consists of mostly blue and red pistes, with a couple of green slopes for beginners and links to the Flegere area, via the liaison lift. From here enjoy fantastic views of Mont Blanc, perhaps over lunch at the aptly named "Le Panoramic" restaurant.  Confident skiers can take the home run back to the Savoy slopes (snow permitting) and après-ski at La Folie Douce. |  Contact our concierge for more information & restaurant bookings
Access to Flégère is via the main cable car in the village of Les Praz, a 5 minute drive or bus ride from Chamonix, or you can ski across from Brévent via the Liaison lift. The gentle wide open slopes of La Flégère are perfect for beginners and lower level intermediates, but with plenty of steep reds to keep intermediate and advanced skiers entertained too. Off-piste skiers and snowboarders love it for the deep powder bowls, steep drops and trees. | Contact our concierge for more information and restaurant bookings
