About this location
The Rhône-Alpes region
Les Houches is located in the Haute Savoie and is the gateway to the Chamonix valley.The pistes of Les Houches are regularly used for international events most notably the 'Kandahar' run which is used for the Men's Downhill World Cup Ski Championships. Les Houches provides a training ground for the French National Ski Team and the Ski Club of Great Britain. The skiing area consists of 1 international black run, 12 red runs, 5 blue runs and 4 green runs, cross-country trails, and a snow park. Extensive artificial snow coverage is provided by a new network of 67 snow canons covering 19 hectares. There are nursery slopes at Le Tourchet in the centre of the village itself. The Jardin du Neige for children from 3yrs is located next to Lac de Chavants, and there is a nursery area at the top of the Prarion ski Lift. Which runs from the valley floor to the top of Les Houches ski area. The other ski areas, Brevent/Flegere, Grand Montets and Le Tour are also easily accessible from Les Houches. You can even go skiing in the Italian resort of Courmayeur which is 15 minutes through the Mt Blanc tunnel. Les Houches is a stones throw away from the more bustling town of Chamonix which offers even more bars, restaurants and clubs. All of which will make for a great ski holiday.
