What's it like at Argentiere resort?

Argentière, sometimes seen as the little brother to Chamonix, is a complete resort in it's own right. Certainly the quieter of the 2 it offers quicker access to the best slopes. The Grands Montets is the must do area for advanced and higher intermediate snow sports enthusiasts everywhere in the world. There are some blue runs snow here which expand the options for the bulk of holiday makers when you need high up north facing runs for good snow but perfect slopes are found nearby with access by the convenient busses. Staying in Argentière also means travelling in the opposite direction to the crowds coming out from or returning to Chamonix. From the village it is 4km up or down the valley to access either Le Tour or Flégère. Le Tour has predominately west and north facing runs of cruisey blues and flattering reds. Flégère's south east facing hillside offers everything from family friendly greens to steep blacks and sustained moguls plus a link to Brevant. Nightlife is catered for with bars, each with it's own character. From Aussie pub, young and lively to the wee hours, live music venue and après party spot. There are enough restaurants to eat out every night for a 2 week holiday, including the best Tex Mex in the valley, whacky fondue joints in the forest and fine dining. Good pub grub, pizza, local specialities and French bistros round out the eating mix.

The headline message is well out of date. The Bouchard gondola is open (2019/2020), and the brand new Flegere gondola lift down the valley is now open which will be great. The Grand Montets cable car is still out of use; however, future plans for a rebuild are being held up temporarily by local planning issues. But enjoy the skinning in the meantime!! Vast slopes available......
