French Alps

Balme Area

What to do

World-class skiing on your doorstep. The Chamonix Valley is considered by many to be the best freeride resorts in the world. 5 ski resorts (Grands Montets, Les Houches, Le Tour/Balme, La Flegere and Le Brevent) Chamonix-Mont-Blanc all offer the perfect skiing holiday.

Balme Tour-Vallorcine is a huge area with two routes to explore! The Vallorcine gondola is located in the village of Vallorcine just 15 kilometres from Chamonix. Situated at the bottom of Le Tour, La Vormaine is a great beginning ski slope, and it is very near to the Swiss border. If you’ve never skied before, here and Le Savoy are excellent locations to start. This large area at the valley’s end provides an incredible view over the Chamonix valley and even Switzerland.Ski Lift Tour - Telecabine Le Tour Col de Balme,74400 Chamonix-Mont-Blanc & Ski Lift Vallorcine - Télécabine Vallorcine, 74660 Vallorcine
