Chamonix is considered by many to be the Grandfather of all ski resorts, it’s a real working town, not just a ski resort, that attracts even more visitors in the summer than it does in the winter. Chamonix couldn’t be more different than a purpose-built ski resort.
Its reputation as an expert’s ski area couldn’t be more wrong, many of our clients who stick to blue runs love the skiing here and the atmosphere that Chamonix creates. But if you are an expert, you will love it here too.
The scenery is spectacular, the mighty Mont Blanc dwarfs everything and the glaciers look wonderful in both summer and winter.
The skiing is a little different than in many ski resorts with the access lifts spread along the valley all connected by a regular free bus, so if you are looking for convenience, don’t come here! The way to get the most of a skiing trip to Chamonix is to ski a different sector each day, sectors include Aiguille du Midi (3842m) Grands Montets (3275m) Le Tour (2770m) Le Flegere (2415m) and Le Breent (2525m).
The snow reliability is good in Chamonix, especially on the higher slopes, the lower runs can suffer, but these can be avoided by using lifts to return to the town.
We offer a good choice of ski chalets, some with excellent childcare, hotel and apartments to suit all budgets. Club Med also have an all-inclusive hotel here, which is our top seller. Many will offer short break stays too, which considering it's less than an hour from Geneva makes Chamonix an ideal choice for stays of less than a week.
