Small and flat, you do not go to Chamonix to visit this back.
We went for a day here during the week when the avalanche went on a le tour. My rating is based on the fact that the hill is located in this high-alpine area and borders between 1 and 2. However, the rating will be after a mature consideration. This depends on all the sluggish Englishmen and Germans who should be portrayed in anything but the pulkback. "IDIOTS"

As said.
Stay away from Les Houches.

Les Houches is a few kilometers from Chamonix and has five lifts and maybe ten runs. The chase after snowfall here is nothing compared to chamonix a few miles from there. Here there are really long, lush slopes for pistachios and beyond the good lines and woodlands. Especially under the elevator and the mountain side next to les Chavants. My tip:
Snows the type + 50cm so stick to Les Houches (if you live in cham) and spend the whole day instead of a few hours of pillows at Grand Montet or Brevent. While you're pumping all day, the foxes are looking for chaos after loosening stains that get over after driving all morning ...
Hope there is a secret to you * yes yes well:>
