Brevant & Flegere, Chamonix Off Piste Skiing

Route:

Off Piste Skiing – Brevant & Flegere, Chamonix - France

Category:

Skiing – Off Piste Skiing

Route description:

The twin ski areas of Brevant and Felgere sit on the south side of the Chamonix valley and provide some excellent piste skiing and off piste runs as well as some of the best views in the Alps.

Both areas also receive plenty of sun throughout the winter. Sometimes this means a warmer day mid-winter and spring skiing later in the season. It does mean the snow can transform quicker here than in other north facing areas, the powder won't hang around quite so long.

The off piste runs are quite diverse in these areas, with short little “between the piste” runs, longer itineraries runs and some classic steeper gully lines for the brave!

Brevant and Flegere are linked by a horizontal cable car, but there's enough skiing to ski in either resort for a few days.

Brevant, and especially Felgere both give access to some superb ski touring in the Aiguille Rouge, the mountain area they both sit on. In the spring many groups will head off on the classic ski tours which vary from out and back routes through to some longer tours that finish in the Buet valley and the village of Vallocine, from where you can catch a bus or train back to Chamonix, a brilliant day out.

The best spring skiing in late season occurs from mid-morning until early afternoon. If you go too early the snow will be rock solid, too late and it'll turn to slush. Timing is everything!

Up early to catch the frozen snow, and a bonus sunrise on the 4327m Nadelhorn.

Perfect conditions, and super quiet. We’re back here on the 30th August if anyone’s keen....?

All six of us to the top of #montblanc yesterday - great weather and conditions.

We even hung out at the summit for a while, a rare treat!

Thanks also to @claphamski for guiding.

Our next Mont Blanc trip starts today with the Grand Paradiso. Let’s hope this weather lasts 🤞

Managed to sneak onto the summit of the Grand Paradiso between two days of unsettled and stormy weather.

A little trail breaking was required. All good prep for #montblanc - we’re heading that way tomorrow.
