LES CONTAMINES, FRANCE

Ski Holidays in Les Contamines-Montjoie, France

Les Contamines is a quiet unspoilt village at the head of the Montjoie valley and is dominated by Mont Blanc.

It boasts 120km of piste suitable for all standards but with an emphasis for intermediates, although there are some interesting black runs and plenty of off piste. Its snow record is reliable and as most of the slopes are above 1800m and face north and north-east, they retain their snow when other nearby resorts are suffering. Off-piste you can also find the delights of dog-sledding and ice-climbing.

The resort itself is attractive with wooden chalets, old fashioned hotels and an old church, with night life centred around the bars and restaurants. Considering its proximity to the international resorts of Chamonix and Megève, it has a genuinely French atmosphere.
