THE SKIING

The impressive Contamines ski area offers something for everyone. Novice, intermediate and expert skiers will find plenty to please and an interesting variety of terrain to tackle. The incredible scenery is not to be missed and includes an unparalleled view of the Mont Blanc region! 

46 runs are accessed by 4 gondolas, 8 chairlifts and 12 drag lifts.

There’s 120km of piste to explore and the longest run at the resort is a fabulous 10km.

From high-altitude black runs above the treeline to gentler slopes winding through the forest, Les Contamines will surprise and delight you at every turn. Better still, you will find that the lifts and runs are pleasantly uncrowded, even at peak times.

The majority of the terrain is accessible from the chairlifts and gondolas so snowboarders can also make the most of their time at Les Contamines.

SNOW

The resort enjoys an enviably excellent snow record and is notable for the many hours of sunshine it experiences in the winter months. Snow retention is superb due to the north and north-east facing slopes and snow making equipment ensures that there are always runs available. 

Night skiing and the snowparks will add a few thrills to your visit. You can hire all of your equipment at the resort and the ski school’s main meeting point is at l’Etape, adjacent to the venue hotel.
