The Chalet is situated nearby Chamonix (8km), in a small village called Les Houches. It's 10min walk from the center and 5min walk to the ski resort (you can catch the snow gondola from there). Depending on snow conditions it is possible to reach the Blue trail and the snow gondola by skis if you don't want to walk.
Les Houches ski resort is part of the Mt-Blanc Chamonix Ski Valley and offers an extensive variety of slopes for the beginner to the more advanced skier with an amazing view of the encompassing Alps, shrouded in winter in brilliant snow and in the summer snow-capped and fringed with lush green fir trees: a remarkable getaway if you like climbing, trekking, and mountain biking...
