Les Houches ski area is now included in the Mont Blanc Unlimited pass which includes the entire Chamonix Valley plus Courmayeur and Verbier. In good weather Les Houches is the quietest ski area in the valley and it also has the best bad weather skiing in the Chamonix valley because the sheltered blue runs at the top of the Prarion area are usually the last to be closed.
