Brevent and Flegere are the only two two ski areas in the Chamonix Valley joined together by a 'liaison' cable car. Brevent is the closest ski area to the centre of Chamonix, whilst Flegere is closest to the village of Les Praz.
At the foot of the Brevent gondola you'll find the Savoy nursery area, which has two drag lifts and a magic carpet lift which is free to use. Next to the drag lift is a practise area designated just for small children and the ESF snow-garden for toddlers.
The gradient at the Savoy is very gentle and the pistes are nice and wide, allowing you practise turns and build confidence before heading higher up the mountain. There's a small cafe near the lift for when you're ready to take a break, and the town centre of Chamonix is just a few paces away, making this nursery area one of the easiest to access.
If you're ready to progress, take the gondola up to the main Brevent ski area where you'll find two green pistes and 8 blue pistes. On the far side, in Flegere ski area are two more green pistes and three blue pistes.
