Aiguille des Grands Montets, Chamonix

3.8
#3 of 7 in Winter Sports in Chamonix
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.

  • On a stunning clear day we went up to the Grands Montets from Argentiere. It was cold on top as we climbed the steel staircase to the viewpoint right at the top and we could feel the thin air up there...  more »
