Brevent Flegere

Brevent Flegere Ski Resort Chamonix, France

The ski resort of Brevent Flegere sits in a prime south facing position above legendary Chamonix. Its sunny slopes are one of the most exceptional sites in The Alps. Few places have such a spectacular view of the Mont Blanc massif.

Brevent Flegere ski resort is the best place in Chamonix to gently acquire a tan whilst taking in the panoramic splendour - if that's what takes your fancy. If not, then it is a place with a wide range of on and off-piste terrain to exhilarate skiers of all categories and levels of expertise.

Brevent Flegere Lifts & Terrain

Brévent Flégère ski resort has an impressive 1500m of skiable vertical, but the reality is that most of the terrain is up above 2000m. Below that, there are only two advanced valley trails and a whole lot of rarely skiable off piste steeps & trees.

The ski area is serviced by 16 main lifts (4 gondolas / cable cars, 8 chairs). The combined area of nearly 60km of piste trails is the most in the Chamonix valley.

Brevent Flegere is accessible from Chamonix via gondola (to Brevent Plan Praz at 2000m) and from Les Praz village via cable car (to Flegere at 1894m). The ski area is not piste trail connected between Brevent & Flegere. A cable car links the two ski areas high above the valley.

Brevent Flegere Skiing & Snowboarding

The Brevent ski area is situated directly above the town of Chamonix. The lift station is an easy 5-10min walk from the town centre. The ski area is well suited to intermediate skiers with reasonably challenging piste and off-piste opportunities.

A renowned black run down from Le Brévent (2525m) to Plan Praz (2000m) is the "Charles Bozon" with an impressive wall along one side is great for confident skiers. Brévent is known for its steep faces and high cliff jumps which make it attractive for freeriders with comprehensive health insurance cover! 

The Flegere ski area is situated above the village of Les Praz. It caters mainly to intermediate skiers with some beginner slopes situated close to the mountain restaurants. You can enjoy the numerous pistes as well as test out your off-piste skills in areas that are near the piste trails. One of the most attractive aspects of Flegere is its south-facing position. This mountain is often bathed in sunlight till the end of the day.
