Skiing & Pistes in Chamonix

Chamonix has six different ski ares which means there is something for everything however it is quite a rugged resort with less (and older) lifts than many other resorts in the Alps, leaving much of the mountain untouched by pistes. There is a slight lack of beginner pistes and an abundance of steep skiing meaning it may not be the ideal destination for beginners.
