Handiski

Available for all ages and levels.

  • Les Houches ESF works in partnership with the association Loisir Assis Evasion, which helps disabled people to learn to ski by themselves or with the assistance of an instrtuctor.
  • Les Houches is the first European ski resort with a lift designed to transport every type of mountain sports equipment available without having to remove or add to the cable car. This allows mountain bikes and paragliders in summer and skis, snowboards and adaptive ski equipment in winter .
  • We also provide daytrips to Chamonix and skiing on the infamous Vallée Blanche
