Balme

Winter :

Amongst the alpine pastures and starting from the villages of le Tour and Vallorcine, the Balme areas offer multiple skiing and pleasure on two distinct slopes. In the Charamillon sector, you can enjoy wide, gentle pistes facing the Chamonix Valley, while the Vallorcine sector enables you to ski through the pine trees near the Swiss border. It is possible to ski back to the resort.

Summer :

A few kilometers from the Swiss border, this area of vast alpine pastures offers you an unequalled view over the Mont-Blanc chain and the Chamonix Valley.

Then turn around and you can admire absolutely magnificent views over the Swiss Alps. Take advantage of the marked and secured mountain bike routes and hiking trails that make it easy to cover the area.

With its 2 gondolas and its chairlift, you can get away from it all and enjoy the wealth of the Balme area.
