Marmotte Mountain Azimuth is located in the village of Argentiere, adjacent to the nursery slope of les Chosalets and approximately 800 metres from the world class ski resort of les Grand Montets.
Ski in/ski out access to the les Grand Montets ski resort is possible by going via les Chosalets nursery slope and then taking la Moraine cross country ski track to the Lognan cablecar. Les Chosalets nursery slope is located only a few minutes from the chalet and is a great area for beginner skiers and for families with young children. Beginner skiers can enjoy learning on the quiet and gentle slopes without the fear of more advanced skiers coming past at high speeds. Les Chosalets is also a good option for those looking to find a suitable toboggan slope.
The village of Argentiere can also be accessed on foot (approx 10-15 mins) via a maintained snow track or along the path next to the main road into Argentiere.
The village has a great range of bars and restaurants, supermarket, newsagent, post office, doctors surgery, pharmacy and many other specialist shops catering to a wide range of needs.
Closer to the chalet, you find the highly recommended La Yaute Cafe and fine dining restaurant La Remise. Throughout the winter ski season, La Yaute Cafe hosts many talented and original live French bands - not to be missed.
