CROSS-COUNTRY SKI
FOYERS DE SKI DE FOND (CROSS-COUNTRY SKI CENTRES)
Route du Bouchet – Chamonix ) 04 50 53 11 15
Route d’Argentiere – Argentiere ) 04 50 54 14 22
42 km of cross-country trails starting from Chamonix and running through to Argentiere. Varied routes, plenty of woods, for novices of both classic and skating styles(11 trails covering all levels of difficulty).

ADVICE

– Off-piste skiing is dangerous: the existence of a track does not imply safety. Off-piste skiing generally involves glaciers, with all the accompanying risks (crevasses, avalanches, ice pinnacles, etc).

– Free ride, off-piste, mountain skiing: be prepared, avalanche victim detector, shovel, snow probe!
