Chamonix

With a reputation for challenging skiing, Chamonix lies at the foot of Western Europe’s tallest mountain, the 4,810-metre Mont Blanc. The first winter Olympics were held here in 1924, and it is home to the highest vertical ascent cable car in the world, which takes passengers from the bustling town of Chamonix at 1,035 metres to the summit of the Aiguile du Midi at 3,842 metres.

Season

December 16, 2017 – May 1, 2018

Ski area

Chamonix consists of five resorts spread out over 150 kilometres – Grands Montets, Les Houches, Le Tour/Balme, La Flégère and Le Brevent. The latter two are linked by lifts, while free shuttle buses connect the others. There are 65 lifts, with 16 green runs, 27 blue, 25 red and 12 black, plus two terrain parks. The Mont-Blanc Unlimited Lift Pass is valid in all five resorts, as well as Courmayeur in Italy, the 4 Vallées in Switzerland, with one visit to Evasion Mont-Blanc (St Gervais or Megève) also included.

Accommodation

Stay in the historic town of Chamonix to be close to shops, bars and restaurants, or choose the quieter village of Argentière, family-friendly les Houches, authentic Servoz or the more remote Vallorcine, near the Swiss border.
