At the foot of Mont-Blanc in a small valley tucked in the woods, you’ll discover just the uniquely charming ski village of Les Contamines-Montjoie

Nestled in at 1164 meters, Les Contamines has managed to hold on to its authenticity and typically Savoyard heart and soul.  Many already recognize Les Contamines for its dependable annual snow fall and sunny orientation.  The town is surrounded by several impressive mountain peaks.  To the east, you’ll see the high mountains , les Dômes de Miage (3, 673 m.) and Bionnassay Peak (4,052 m.) which is part of the Massif du Mont Blanc.  To the west, the resort stretches out over the sides of le Mont Joly (2,525 m.) and allows one to access skiing at Hauteluce through the Col du Joly.
The summit at the Tête du Veleray offers a wonderful panoramic view of the Massif du Mont Blanc, the Aravis range and the gorgeous Beaufortain valley. Further, to the south, you’ll see towards the peak called “Bonhomme” which guides you towards Italy.

The ski area covers several mountain faces.  More than 120 kms of trails give skiers and riders of all levels and interest vast choices for a varied and rich ski vacation.

In Les Contamines, one can explore downhill skiing, cross country skiing on beautifully maintained tracks, "ski de randonnée", snowshoeing, ice skating and dog sledding.   There is a snowpark for snowboarders, a childcare center, a movie theater and thermal baths in nearby St. Gervais.
