Les Houches is a charming old village in the Chamonix valley, and is a great place from which to explore not only the resort itself but the wider Chamonix skiing area! Chalet style accommodation developments are arranged around the village's church and the result is picture-perfect. And there's plenty to ski here: the 47km of runs, kept in great condition by 67 snow guns, form the winter base for both British and French national ski teams. Less than an hour away from Geneva, only 7km from Chamonix and 14km from Argentiere, the resort is remarkably convenient. Read more...

Skiing in Les Houches is perhaps best known for its high-quality runs for more experienced skiers, and the jewel in the crown is the Khandahar Verte des Houches, which functions as the World Cup Downhill course! However, Les Houches has plenty more on offer, and its nursery slopes and variety of gentle runs are great for beginners and less confident skiers. Add in the fact that the wooded slopes give protection from bad weather, and you've got a great setup for less confident skiers. For snowboarders in Les Houches, there is a snowpark with all the obstacles you'd expect. Cross-country skiers can explore the valley on sunny tracks through the woodland, with great views along to the valley to Megeve.
