description

Ascent

Park the car at Le Bettey (1352m). Follow the normal way up the Aiguillette des Houches by the Plan la Cry and the Chalets de Chailloux. Very popular for snow showing as far as the Chalets de Chailloux.
From the Aiguillette des Houches (2285m) go to the col de Bellachat (2130m) and then to the Tête de Bellachat, by basically following the summer footpath.
From the Tête de Bellachat climb up to the Brévent lift by the Grand Balcon.

Descent

From the top of the Brévent (2525m) descend to Chamonix by the piste and then the Couloir du Brévent

remarks

In winter the traverse to and descent from the Brévent is only really interesting before the Brévent ski area is fully open. An alternative is to descend can by reversing the ascent route back the Aiguillette and then down to Le Bettey. Be careful, S facing slope. The route is often done by starting from the top of the Brévent lift and enjoying the snows of Carlaveyron, passing just under the Lac du Brévent before skinning back up to the Aiguillette des Houches. Do not try and ski down to the Gorges de la Diosaz, no way out and no telephone signal!
