About Le Tour

Le Tour is a traditional Savoyarde village situated 4km north-east of Argentiere, right at the end of the valley. It is overlooked by the spectacular Le Tour Glacier and offers a marvellous opportunity for both winter and summer holiday makers to sample a little high-altitude terrain without undue technical difficulty. Le Tour also offers some of the best views of Mont Blanc and the Chamonix Valley.

Skiing & Boarding In Le Tour

Le Tour (also known as the Domaine de Balme) is an excellent area for skiiers and boarders of all ability. Beginners can enjoy the nusery slopes of La Vormaine, before venturing to the higher slopes, while intermediates can concentrate on their technique on the wide, varied and easily accessible pistes which make up the majority of the area.

The new pistes and new gondola on the Vallorcine side of Le Tour offer plenty of skiing possibilities for advanced skiiers. With qualified mountain guides, advanced skiers and boarders can appreciate the breathtaking off-piste areas. Without the strains of touring you can enjoy being guided into some powder bowls and even into Switzerland where you sample the world famous Swiss trees!
