Chamonix consists of 3 separate skireas each with their own identity. Le Tour at the very end of the Chamonix Valley, just 100 m from the Swiss border, is a large bowl-shaped area with long and wide slopes and excellent scenery. The Le Tour area has several wide blue and gentle red pistes and is ideal for beginners and less experienced skiers. Gand Montets, just above Argentiere, is the largest ski area in the valley, mainly appreciated by semi-advanced skiers. La Flegere and Le Brevent is the skiarea closest to Chamonix. It consists of challenging reds and blacks.
