Evasion Mont Blanc

Great Value Skiing in La Giettaz

Chalet La Giettaz ski

"It is possible to enjoy exactly the same skiing as those staying in glitzy resorts, while spending less. The trick is to opt for a back-door resort - one of those lesser-known villages in the large ski regions that you have passed through before without a backward glance." The Times.

As well as being amazed by the quiet pistes, beautiful surroundings and untracked off-piste in this part of the French Alps, first time visitors are consistently surprised by the great value offered by a ski holiday in La Giettaz.  Our local area, the 100km Portes du Mont Blanc, has the cheapest lift pass for an area of this size in Europe.  This area is part of the larger 445km Evasion Mont Blanc pass, which is one of the best value large area ski passes in the whole of France.
