The season begins: Lift status

We are all happy to tell you Grand Montets will be fully open from this weekend. Compagnie du Mont Blanc had origanaly said there would only be a partial opening from the 7th and then the rest would open from the 21st but it looks like they are feeling generous this year. If you want to check what exactly is open go here.

Les Houches will also open its doors this weekend (7th/8th) with a partial opening of its resort, though we are not sure what exactly that will include and if it will be open during the week. The Prarion lift will most likely be open and then maybe some more lifts at the top. Either way you should be able to get some nice long runs back down tot he bottom. Check here for live lift updates.

Other areas in the valley will have partial openings on the 14th of December with everything opening fully form the 21st.

Other resorts close by and included on the Unlimited Chamonix pass are open too.

Verbier has been open for a little while now. Not all the mountain is open but there is still plenty of nice open piests to chage around on. Live lift status can be found here.

Courmayeur opened last weekend with good piste conditions and a little powder for opening day, you can read Lorne’s report from last weekend here.  We are unsure if the whole resort will be open form this weekend so it is best to check out their live lift status, which can be found here.
