Chamonix, at the base of Mt Blanc, is the place to go for alpine thrill seekers and freeriders. The resort is known the world over for its steep, challenging runs, off-piste powder, and dramatic mountain scenery with tumbling glaciers beneath a crown of rocky spires. Its legendary 12-mile Vallee Blanche is a high off-piste run, the longest in Europe, and a rite of passage.  Chamonix hosted the first ever Winter Olympics in 1924 and is considered by many to be the birthplace of alpine skiing and offers both traditional charm and a lively nightlife.

 

For the mere mortal skiers and riders there are miles of intermediate slopes and blissful fast-cruising pistes.  You don't have to be an expert to enjoy Chamonix's numerous versatile ski areas.  The range is exceptional and it spells versatility – long runs below the tree line, and big glacier runs at high altitude. No two days are the same in this hugely varied ski area.

 

Chamonix’s setting beneath the cliffs and tumbling glaciers of the Mont Blanc massif is tremendous, and the bustling charming town with its old buildings have kept their sedate Victorian and more fanciful Belle Epoque look. The town centre is traffic-free, it offers pleasant strolling, with cafés overhanging the river Arve’s torrent and a wealth of interesting shops.

 

We will be staying at the Hotel Le Prieure, walking distance to everything.  Don’t miss out!
