The Best skiing in the world by Silverbakk
Been there for totally 4months split in everything from one week vacation to 2 month bumming. Have mainly lived in Argentiere, since it is closer to Grant Montets. It is a bit quiter, but still wonderfull. I do in contrary to many others like that the different skiing systems are split. This will make you choose skiing according to your mood for the day (and the weather).
To get the most out of the skiing I would recommend that you are not a beginner when you go to Cham. The best skiing is not in the slopes. Take La Tour for example, quite booring slopes (flat ) but if you peek outside you have some challeging skiing.
There are some really nice restaurants is Chamonix, even one with a famouse star (or two). You can also find cheap stands with just a burger. The have this strange thing where they put a burger in between a big bread with french fires in there as well. Tasty but it´s quite tricky to eat it.
If you go there in the spring a really recommend ending a couple of days early and just relax on the nice cafés.
I will finish off with a warning though. If you are not experienced in off-piste skiing, where the right equipment and never go alone (or don´t go at all is probably the best). It is dangerous, avalanches and people falling inte cravasses are common. Don’t let the weather fool you.
Every system has it´s own personlaity and you will probably find your own favorite, my favorites are definately or order Gran Montets, La Tour, Brevant/Flegere….
Enjoy probably the best skiing in the world and I hope that it has snowed for two weeks before you arrive.over 7 years ago
