Avalanche risk was extremely high for the last few days and is still very high. Avoid steep slopes off piste whichever way they face and, although the snow-pack is becoming more stable after the last big dump, wet-snow slides will soon became a danger on sunny sloes in the afternoon. Read both the weather forecast and the avalanche bulletin. This year the Compagnie Mont Blanc is reeling under the impact of a catastrophic fire which destroyed the mid-station at Argentiere, multiple cable problems and the subsequent replacement costs, the deployment of the wonderful Russian heavy-lift helicopter which can't be cheap , and the brutal fact that some race-teams have gone elsewhere to train.
But the piste team is exceptional in Les Houches, as I've said before.
We should never forget how much our enjoyment of the snow depends on the hard work and dedication of the piste team. So be careful, even if you took and survived stupid risks last season. Educate yourself: Atomic Skis sponsor an off-piste website which gives comprehensive modular instruction on minimising and assessing mountain risks. There is a small fee to sign up but it well worth paying, should help you enjoy the mountains, and might save your life or that of somebody close to you.
Very highly recommended. The URL is: mountainacademy. In combination with extensive snow-making and excellent piste management this allows it to offer reliable skiing conditions which attract race teams and instructor-training groups.
And it is part of the iconic Chamonix region of course. Les Houches has many mountain restaurants. If you have gourmet inclinations you may like to sample the charming Vieille Luges, the cool and stylish L'Hors Piste, both of which serve first-class food, while La Taniere has a wonderful atmosphere and a unique Argentinian buzz. A surprisingly large number of other mountain restaurants offer alternatives at lower cost. At the bottom of the lifts there is the quirky Kitch Inn near the Bellevue cable-car, and the friendly and traditional bar-cafe Le Spot is just across the road.
At the Prarion lift Eric Jaquier's very professional boulangerie-patisserie has expanded to become a welcome cafe-bar.
Perhaps arrive early and breakfast at one of these places before riding the first lift up to make the most of the best snow and the quietest pistes. It's a very effective tactic in busy periods like Christmas, half-term, and the Easter holidays. The Compagnie Mont Blanc website shows an accurate map and webcams for you to check the slopes of Les Houches and all the other areas.
There have been several changes in the last few years with much-loved but aging drag lifts being removed and chairlifts installed. This is an annual pass which debits your credit card automatically whenever you ski or use the summer lifts.
Those not wanting to hike can miss the first, steepest pitch and traverse in from the top of the Marquise chair. The route starts open before heading into trees and through old villages only inhabited in summer.
The guides will also coordinate with buses or arrange taxis back to the resort as necessary. Snowboarders With few flats to speak of and plenty of powder - plus an uncrowded snow park, St Foy is an excellent choice for snowboarders.
And of course all of that - including terrain park - is a lot of fun for skiers as well as snowboarders! Plan Bois has some flat sections, and you need a bit of speed to get along the beginning of La Chapelle and for the run Combes that comes back from Marquise to get across to the bottom of the second lift. Ski schools and guides The ESF in St Foy has an excellent reputation and the fact that the slopes are quiet creates a good learning environment. Other good schools include Evolution 2 , K Spirit and Snocool.
Lift system In addition to the magic carpets for first-timers, there are four ski lifts in St Foy — all of them chairlifts — the newest being the six-seater Marquise.
The Italian sector, on the other hand, takes a more traditionalist approach to its skiing, including some undemanding cross-country trails. Snow reliability and snowmaking Although blessed with relatively good natural snow and predominantly north-facing runs, St Foy does have decent snowmaking facilities.
