Due to the growing attraction towards this sports among the public, the Chamonix valley has decided to create ski touring practice loops adapted to all levels.
Naturally, ski touring remains forbidden on all marked ski runs (municipal by-law).
There are 3 allocated ski-touring sites in the valley. Users can tour up these unpatrolled nor maintained courses during the day, and ski back down on the piste.
Les Houches/Prarion : vertical gain : 841 m (2’775)
Argentière/Lognan par la Trapette (advanced) gain 730 m (2'410)
Le Tour/Les Autannes : gain 701 m (2’310)
