Snow shoeing

TThis is a fantastic way to experience the mountains in relative calm and quiet. You are advised to take a guide. Most of the sports shops hire snow-shoes for around 8€.

Cross Country Skiing

The Chamonix valley consists of around 43km of ski runs split into four circuits. The main circuit is located 1km from Chamonix on the road towards Argentière.

Mountain Walks

Mountain walking paths have been cut into slopes by the lift pass company, so that even those who don’t wish to ski can still enjoy the walks. For more information contact the Tourist Office

Speed Riding

Speed riding consists of skiing and paragliding the length of a slope wearing skis strapped to a small paraglider (8-14m2). The aim is not to fly but to play with the mountain side like a skier and to descend the slope quickly combining skiing and flying. This sport is open to everyone with good off-piste skiing ability. Training lasts a full day either in group or private lessons.
