Les Houches Piste Map Skiing & Snowboarding the trails in Les Houches & around the Chamonix Valley
The Les Houches piste map shows the local ski area at the entrance of the world famous Chamonix Valley. The pistes are ideal for beginners and intermediates plus there are 2 challenging black pistes, one of which is used for the FIS World Cup downhill.
The ski area in Les Houches ranges from 1000m to 1860m and therefore is the perfect place to ski when the clouds engulf the higher altitude slopes at La Tour and at the Grand Montets. The ski runs through the forests are simply superb.
The highlight of any ski holiday in Les Houches is the 24km Vallee Blanche glacial route starting at 3842m at the Aiguille du Midi! - not to be missed and this trail is best tried with a local guide.
Overall, Les Houches and the other ski areas along the Chamonix Valley offer every type of terrain possible from beginner to extreme off-piste skiing. The other great thing about Les Houches is the spectacular views of the glaciers flowing down the valley slopes from Mont Blanc - a sight you never seem to get tired of looking at.
