Les Houches in short

  • Own ski area with 50 km of slopes
  • Beautiful views of the Mont Blanc
  • Cheaper alternative to Chamonix

The unassuming family ski resort of Les Houches, close to Chamonix, is a great, cheaper alternative for ski holidays in the Evasion Mont-Blanc area. Nowhere else will you find such fantastic views of the Mont Blanc. This unpretentious ski resort has a ski area offering 50 kilometres of slopes and connections to the ski area of Saint-Gervais on the other side of the mountain. The reasonable prices and abundance of facilities for children make this ski resort very popular among young families. Both ski schools in Les Houches have a daycare centre and there are seperate chil care facilities in the resort centre. Everything for a perfect family ski holiday.
