Savoy Beginner Ski Area & Lifts, Chamonix - Centre

Nursery area with two drags lifts and a magic carpet close to the town centre

featured in Lift pass offices & lift stations Updated

The Savoy is a small area at the bottom of the Brévent gondola, very close to the town centre of Chamonix. 

There are two short drag lifts - the Samaran and the Savoy and a magic carpet to help the children in ski school. The terrain is very gently sloping, so it's a great place to learn to ski or snowboard. 


In the winter bus number 15 takes you to the bottom of the Brévent gondola where you can walk or ski down onto the beginner area. If you're not that confident yet, it's easy enough to reach on foot either from behind the Folie Douce hotel or via the paths leading through the apartments on Rue Joesph Vallot.
