Argentiere in France Resort Guide

Snowsure, challenging skiing from Argentiere a small, pleasant but busy village which is linked by free bus to Chamonix 8km further down the valley. It mixes a smattering of modern developments within the traditional village atmosphere. Les Grand Montets which reaches high above Argentiere offers some of the more challenging steep terrain and off piste in Europe. Between them Chamonix and Argentiere yield some of the most awesome skiing - from bumps to powder bowls, chutes and gullies. Services of a local guide are recommended to access some of the more exhilarating glacial fields. The Argentiere hotels - like the bars and restuarants - are, in the main, unfussy and have always been comparitively good value and are easily accessed from the village. Skiing is against one of the more spectacular backdrops in the Alps, and the area continues to be a magnet for better skiers from all over the globe. Above Argentiere the north facing slopes have an excellent snow holding record, which often lasts through to late springearly summer. On Les Grands Montets the Bochard area now has its own snowmaking.


Accomodation & Après Ski

Small but friendly village with a few bars and a few good restaurants though by far the majority of good quality after dark entertainment can be found down in Chamonix.
