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.

Final days skiing in Iran. A great couple of skis here with sunshine and a lot of powder. Some of the best #skitour days I’ve ever done.

On the lower slopes of Damavand, the highest peak in Iran.
Some pretty wild weather occasionally, but good to be out. We ended up skinning a 1000m before picking our way down through the gullies back to the car.

The weather for tomorrow looks ace, so looking forward to a big day.

Had a great warmup - shake down yesterday at Dizin, the main resort here. Plenty of lifts and options. And tons of snow boarders.
