Ski Area

No other ski resort has quite the global appeal of Chamonix. Located below Western Europe’s highest peak, Mont Blanc, and a favourite with Brits for over 150 years, it’s not only one of the best ski areas on earth, it's also one of the quickest and easiest to reach too!

As well as being one of the world’s great ski areas, Chamonix is one of the best ski towns on earth, with a vibrant mix of shopping, restaurants, bars and nightlife as well as 101 different things to do off the slopes, making it a good choice for couples and groups that include non-skiers.

The skiing is divided into several different sectors which include family and beginner friendly ski areas as well as some of the most exciting and challenging on and off-piste runs to be found anywhere, plus the legendary Vallee Blanche, the world’s longest lift-served descent at more than 20km. The list of superlatives just goes on and on...
