Aiguille des Grands Montets, Chamonix

(380+ reviews on the web)
Mountain
Aiguille des Grands Montets is the home of the most difficult pistes in Europe. If you’re ready to strap on a snowboard, then try out the board/skier cross park. The area receives less sun than other which conditions stay good until late spring. So, if you’re a pro, or an experienced enthusiast, than these are the slopes for you. Hotels and restaurants are located near the slopes if this is your favorite spot; however, most come for a day trip on the area's challenging slopes. Use our Chamonix travel itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Aiguille des Grands Montets and other attractions in Chamonix.

  • In 10+ skiing outings, only a couple of times pistes were groomed.
  • Simply the best off-piste ski area in the world

  • Nice place for skiing and the rest but too expensive for a French station daily.
