The latest information on the Companie Du Mont-blanc website says the following.
“The Grands Montets ski area will be open continuously from December 5th, 2015. Timetable: From December 5th, until December 18th 2015 included. First departure from Lognan at 9am, last round trip at 3:45pm, last one-way mountaineers 4:15pm and last descent from Lognan at 4:45pm. Have nice day !”
This is great news and means the conditions up on the mountain are better at this time of year than they have been for a number of years.
Lets hope there is more on the way!
When visiting Chamonix there are a large number of great activities, one is to visit Park Merlet in Les Houches, Coupeau. Â
With children its a wonderful day out, there is a great Restaurant with fantastic views and a number of wonderful walks where you will spot lots of wildlife such asÂ Chamois, bouquetins, mouflons, marmottes and dear.
Getting there can be easy, there is a Bus service from Les Houches centre (Marie) that stops by the Train station in Les Houches and costs 2 Euros. Â This will still require a bit of a walk but it will be worth it.
We also offer transport to the Park either in one of our minibuses or our Eco taxi from anywhere in the Chamonix Valley.
