Quick Guide to Chamonix
Chamonix has made a name for itself as the most adventurous and extreme skiing there is, there are plenty of steep and challenging runs and of course - off piste runs well known the world over. The Mont Blanc Pass offers access to 952km of pistes, so it's no wonder they hosted the first ever Winter Olympics back in 1924. Alternatively you can get 157km access with the basic Chamonix pass.
Mont Blanc itself reaches 4,800 meters, making it the highest mountain in the French Alps. To experience it in all its glory you can ride the Aiguille du Midi Cable car, which takes you up to 3,482 meters. From here you’ll get a breath-taking 360 degree view as far as the eye can see (on a clear day) great for skiers and non skiers alike, this is a trip of a lifetime.
From the top of the cable car you can also access the legendary Valley Blanche, a 20km off piste trail down the glacier, it’s enough to thrill anyone from intermediate level to even the most advanced skiers and snowboarders. (A guide is recommended!)
The centre of Chamonix is partly car free with cobbled streets, old buildings, a beautiful river running through it and pavement cafes and restaurants. In addition to this visitors can enjoy a hoard of fantastic shops, with anything from Instersport for ski and snowboard hire, to big names such as Northface, Patagonia, Swarovski and Chanel even making appearance in this classic ski resort.
