Les Houches Skiing1 Snowboarding Videos

Les Houches is described as the balcony of the Chamonix Valley and from its vantage point 6 km from Chamonix you get a stunning panorama of the whole Mont Blanc range. In Les Houches you're actually at the foot of the Mont Blanc and one of the climbing routes to the summit starts from here.

Another outstanding thing with Les Houches is the superb runs carved through the forest which provide great freeride opportunities right from the top of the mountain. This huge vertical drop and varied terrain is the reason one of the most famous downhill ski races, the Kandahar, takes place in Les Houches every year.
