Enjoy Chamonix

29 Aug 2016

Ever wondered what your perfect ski resort might be? High-altitude glacier or picture perfect mountain village? Bustling après or authentic alpine? Family friendly or a place to impress on the corporate ski? Or maybe you are working your way through your ski bucket list? We are here to help you make that choice with our perfect ski resort guide.


Here we look at CHAMONIX, the home of winter sports. Chamonix should be on every ski resort bucket list, home to the tallest peak, the greatest challenges and the most talented athletes. It’s a resort of many sides with impressive facilities for beginners, intermediates and non-skiers alike with a town more akin to a small international city. So, are you up for the challenge?

Chamonix - the home of winter sports

Chamonix-Mont-Blanc is the without question the international home of winter sports. Regularly voted No.1 Ski Destination in the World the extent of its ski terrain is unsurpassed which keeps skiers returning to Chamonix year after year.

For beginners, there are easy to navigate nursery slopes at the bottom of the Chamonix valley. For intermediate skiers, Chamonix has miles and miles of blue and red pistes on sunny south facing slopes.

For expert skiers, Chamonix is world-renowned, and for good reason. You can enjoy the steep deeps at Les Grand Montets, or book a guide to discover the Vallee Blanche, the longest stretch of off-piste in Europe; then there’s the World Cup piste at Kandahar and the blacks at Brévent-Flégère. That’s before you tackle some heli-skiing, ice-climbing or conquer the mammoth Mont Blanc.

With the Chamonix Mont Blanc Unlimited Ski Pass you can also access nearby Verbier and Courmayeur making it completely impossible for you to get bored!

Off mountain the town is cosmopolitan and bustling with high-end designer shopping, exceptional and international dining experiences and enough après to fill any ski boot.


But Chamonix is also incredibly well organised for families and non-ski groups with swimming pools, cinemas, bowling, art galleries, exhibitions and an abundance of non-ski related mountain activities from snow shoeing, pony trekking, golf, a visit to the Mont Blanc and train rides to the Mer de Glace glacier. Chamonix is the endless adventure and as such large ski groups, family groups and corporate ski groups will all be exceptionally well catered for.
