tvonnyAbout to send it over to Chamonix next week, anyone have recommendations on places to go out or areas to ski while I'm there? Any info much appreciated
Grand montets area for black runs is great, Pylones is class as is Pointe de Vue . vallee blanche can be absolutely amazing - but it's completely dependant on snow - and you might want a guide.
Something a bit mellower but my favourite run was flegere which is a red, but it's lovely with great views.
There's loads of off piste stuff everywhere. I thought the areas were a bit disjointed - but you pretty much always get a view of mont blanc so you can't really knock it.
The Pub is great for apres (but full of us brits) and you've got to have a drink on la terrace from the start of blizzard of aahhhs infact just watch that for your cham hype. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiJknkRe3Zc&t=472s
Also there's la verte in the les houches area which is the run for the kandahar world cup downhill.
