La Flégère Ski Resort in Chamonix

 
 

Since 1997, the Brévent and the Flégère ski areas have been linked by a cable car. In 2000, the resorts formally joined to become Brévent-Flégère and now offers anyone a great day of diverse skiing with almost endless terrain.

La Flégère caters to almost all abilities of skiers. You can enjoy the numerous pistes as well as test out your off-piste skills with areas in close proximity to the piste. One of the most attractive aspects of Flegere is its south-facing position.

This mountain is often bathed in sunlight till the end of the day! The car park only has 100 or so spaces, so you should consider taking the Chamonix Bus.

In 2006, a 6-person chair lift was built up to the Index creating much better access to some great on and off-piste skiing. A 4-person chair lift, La Trappe, was also recently built and has increased the rate from 1000 people per hour to 2400 per hour.

There is a 100 vehicle car park right in front of the lift at Les Praz. It can fill quickly so, arrive early or use the free bus service. All buses from Chamonix going north, up the valley towards Grands Montets, Argentière and Le Tour stop at Les Praz for La Flégère.

There are 3 black pistes, 7 red pistes, 2 blue pistes, 2 green pistes.

A black run goes down from La Flégère to Les Praz, although this is patrolled, it is not pisted. This is probably not the most difficult of black runs but it is very long. La Flégère offers some good off piste skiing, for example: combes Lachenal, Glieres, Crochues, etc. This is also a great place to go on a powder day. Grands Montets will draw all the crowds and most runs will be tracked out before noon but if you head to Flegere you can enjoy the powder without the long queues all day.
