Combloux Skiing

Combloux is definitely one of the most family-friendly ski areas in the Pays du Mont-Blanc, and skiing here will reward you with some of the most beautiful views of Mont Blanc and the mountains of Les Aravis and Les Fiz!

Ski Pass Options

You have different ski pass options to suit your family’s needs at Combloux:

  • Les Portes du Mont-Blanc 100km of pistes link up Combloux, Megève, Le Jaillet and La Giettaz and allow access to Cordon (10km of pistes aimed at younger/less experienced skiers).  There are also 3 snowboard and boardercross areas;
  • Domaine Evasion Mont-Blanc  445km of pistes, allowing access to Combloux, Megève, St Gervais and Les Contamines;
  • Forfait Journée Débutant  we have really appreciated this 12€ pass.  With a three year old who has just started to find his skiing mojo, we can’t plan long family ski days, so simple options suit us well.  This pass allows unlimited access to the drag-lifts of Les Brons, Les Garettes and Mowgli and one ride on the Beauregard chair-lift (with this, you can head up for a nice lunch on the pistes and a family ski back to the car – perfect!).

Beginner, Nursery & Family skiing

Little ones (3 to 5 years) can join Piou Piou ski classes on the nursery slopes or play at the outdoor the soft-play area La Tanière de Tilou (the mascot of Combloux) at Le Cry (FREE!).

Snow-Shoeing

There are several snow-shoe trails leaving from the Le Cuchet car park, as well as other trails in Combloux.  See combloux.com for more details or pick up a snow-shoe leaflet from the tourist office.  This is a great option for non-skiers in your group, and you could even meet up at one of the restaurants on the pistes.

Eating Options

There are some great places to eat at Combloux ski station, either on the pistes or at Le Cuchet/Le Cry – for example Le Cœur d’Or, located at the top of the Beauregard chairlift, Au Petit Cuchet (next to the Cuchet car park) or O’PB, near the ESF building.  There is also an Hors Sacs (indoor picnic room) near Le Cry ticket office for those days when picnics are rained/snowed off!
