Skiing & Boarding In Argentiere

From December to May, the high altitude and aspect make for exceptional, cold powder even in late April when most of the supposed winter sports crowd have packed away their skis and boards for the following year! Major pistes - blue, red and black, freeriding, high-mountain or off-piste routes, moguls, secret combes and couloirs accessible to all make up this unique setting coveted by all who have a passion for skiing and all who love the high mountains.

There is a great variety in Argentière from the nursery slopes of Les Chosalets, the wide blues of Marmottons and Arolles, the stunning Bochard red through to the immense Point de Vue black from the very top of Grands Montets. Add to that the natural moguls of la Herse, the combes forming natural board parks and the huge powder bowls of the Glacier, Lognan and Combe de la Pendant.
