Nestled just off to the right hand side of the main gondola at Le Tour is La Vormaine ski area.
The ski area sits at an altitude of 1,462m and has 4 button lifts of varying lengths and a magic carpet, giving beginners access to the gently sloping ski area. The lifts give you access to 2 green pistes, a blue and a freestyle area, perfect if you’re skiing for the first time or with young children.
The lifts open on 19th December from 09:00 to 16:30 every day.
A snack bar can be found on site as well as a children's only area which is managed by the local ESF ski school.
Le Tour & La Vormaine can be reached best by car, as the train only takes you as far as Montroc. It takes around 25 minutes to drive here from the centre of Chamonix, or alternatively you can take one of the local buses which will also take around 30 minutes from the town centre.
