Alpes du Leman Ski Resorts
Alpes du Leman Ski Area
The ski resort of Les Habères is situated in the Chablais area of the Haute-Savoie department and it incorporates four small villages of Bellevaux, Habere Poche, Habere Lullin and Hirmentaz. The lift served area extends from 1000 metres to 1600 metres with slopes from green to black.
The main advantage of Les Habères is that you will not spend time queuing at ski lifts because the resort is only known by locals from the Geneva region and does not adverstize itself outside of Switzerland and Savoie regions. Mid-week skiing leaves the entire slopes to you and your family... There are 50 km of lift served runs and 24 ski lifts that cover both sides of the Hirmentaz range. There are 23 km of cross country trails.
Les Habères ski resort was created in the late seventies by the municipalities of Habere-Poche and Habere-Lullin, later a ski lift, the telesieges des cretes, connexion was made with the Hirmentaz/Bellevaux ski resort to give skiers a broader skiing area. There are plentiful secured off piste paths, thanks to the altitude and wood coverage avalanches are rare and skiing in the powdery snow is a real pleasure.
It is an extremely charming little village only thirty minutes away from Geneva by car and a further 10 minutes to the international airport.
