Great location, finally there is online booking for the top lift. The lift system is woeful, but as long as you have a reservation for the Grands Montets top, you can at least get to the top once a day. Otherwise the lifts are old and embarrassing. Just about everwhere else that calls itself a ski area has better lifts,... More

Probably my favourite place to ski in cham. The snow stays fresher here for far longer, loads of off piste lines, lifts quicker, great views from the top, long and fun run back to base, and there's some great treeline if you know where you're going. There aren't too many piste runs, but if you don't off piste ski, why... More

Nice infrastructure and good restaurants on the ski area. Sometimes may be too crowded, depending on the weather.

Expect to stand in line for the gondola; it takes about 30 minutes or more to complete a single run between the line/mob, the gondola ride, and the very pleasant descent. If you want to descend from the summit, you need to reserve well in advance!

This was our favourite ski area at chamonix. Sadly the gondola to the top was only available one of the days. Amazing views and the best snow was up there as well. Good range of runs. A bit slushy lower down as we had a very warm week.

We skiied here in February, not a lot of snow in the valley and here seemed one of the only places with snow canons so snow coverage remained fairly good. The top can close if the winds pick up, but great skiing overall, lots of runs and lifts to choose from.

Wow. Spectacular views of the Chamonix Valley and unbelievable terrain. We weren't there when they had fresh snow, but I can only imagine what a day at Les Grands Montets would be like on a powder day. Big bowls, great steeps and heaps of big mountain tingles. Amazing place for folks who like to ski blacks and double blacks. Also... More

We only ended up here after staying on the ski bus when seeing the other lift stops so busy, so glad we did! It is amazing, there's so much more here than the piste map suggests, and the views are just out of this world. We were there right in the middle of half term week, and never waited more... More

Topping out at nearly 11,000 feet and with a stellar view of the Mont Blanc massif and Chamonix valley from that height, Les Grands Montets is Chamonix's most celebrated ski area. With its 6500 foot vertical drop, over 4700 acres of skiable terrain, and some of the best steeps in the region, Les Grands Montets is for those seeking a... More

One of the biggest skiing zones. Pretty high to have good quality snow at all time. Good choice of blue, red and black pistes.
