Les Houches Ski Lessons & Guiding

Anyone skiing & snowboarding Chamonix for the first time may struggle to comprehend the full diversity of the off-piste ski terrain potential. Whilst a guide will not be necessary for most visitors to the Les Houches ski resort, anyone wanting to quickly get to know the resort or seeking to improve their off-piste & backcountry skills will benefit from some time with a ski instructor or mountain guide.

Getting to know how to access the best freeride terrain in the remaining Chamonix ski areas can be quite time consuming for new visitors. Backcountry descents off the Aiguille du Midi & into the Argentiere glaciers from Grands Montets are quite daunting to the uninitiated. Spending at least a day or two with a quality local instructor or guide will not only expand your ski experience exponentially but will provide safety & perhaps improve your skills as well.

Ski lessons for on and/or off-piste can be arranged upon arrival. Mountain Guides are best arranged prior to your trip, but the best utilisation of their services is totally dependent on snow & weather conditions - tough choice. Regardless of the weather, there is enough terrain at Chamonix to ski something interesting if you have already hired a guide. Joining a mixed guided group is a whole lot cheaper than hiring a private guide, with the major caveat being one never knows the ski ability & skill level of the other group member until it may be too late.

An incredible array of ski instructors, ski schools & guides ply their craft in the Chamonix valley ski resorts. To narrow down the field, use our partners from a listing below.
