View the trail
Most runs are more north american style, cut through the forest, with quite a few glades and tree bashing areas (actually it is more skier and snowboarder bashing made by the trees than anything). There are 2 faces to ski, the one that faces the Chamonix valley and the one facing towards Geneva. the Chamonix side offers longer runs, but the Geneva side will more often be basked in the sun. On the Geneva side, it is possible to ski all the way down to St-Gervais, cutting through the forest and some pastures, but you will be hard pressed to get back to Chamonix, either taking a bus or the train from St-Gervais.
The front side allows you to ski back all the way to town, and i have more than once been lost in the bottom, going through people's yards trying to find my way back to the lift, sometimes the cars don't appreciate people going down the middle of the road......
