Day Ski Tours
These can broadly be divided into two categories . Day tours which use the lift system to “catapult” you on your way by allowing you to start in the high mountains. Most of the major ski stations have ski tours which can be started from the top of a lift .
In Chamonix the Aiguille Rouge provides some of the best day tours anywhere in the world. They have the added advantage of funnelling you down the beautiful Le Buet Valley which ends at a Bar from where you can wait for the regular train back to Chamonix.
Also Les Grands Montets and the Aiguille du Midi provide suitable launching pads for some spectacular day tours in sublime glaciated terrain.
Secondly there are the ski tours which start from the road head and require no mechanical ski lift. Often starting from the road head adds to the aesthetics of the trip because you can truly be a way from the rest of the world . in addition there is the possibility to bring a dog along [ assuming can find one]
Areas just out side the main ski resorts of Chamonix and Megeve provide some magical destinations . For example the L’Arpille above Martigny, Les Quatres Tetes above Sallanches and Punte Crocce above La Thuile are superb examples of day tours which start from the road head.
