Every skier and snowboarder, without exception, was once a beginner too! The biggest secret in Chamonix's vast expanse of skiing is that it has great learner areas. There are a number of ski areas in Chamonix which provides easy slopes for quick progression to intermediate and more advanced terrain.

In the ski areas of Les Planards, Le Tour, Argentiere/Les Grands Montets, Vallorcine, and Chamonix/Brevent, as well as Les Houches there are beginner slopes for all ages. The Teleski de Savoy is an ideal learning area for children - plus it is practically in the centre of Chamonix on the way up to the Brévent cable car.
