Skiing in Chamonix
Chamonix, rightly, has a reputation as the freeride capital of the world, with skiers coming from all over the world to take on the famous off-piste, such as the ‘Vallee Blanche’. You don’t have to be a pro though to take advantage, with a large number of intermediate pistes to discover, together with a small number of beginner slopes.
The town itself offers an excellent selection of shops, restaurants and boutiques and has excellent nightlife with numerous pubs and nightclubs.
Skiing & Boarding in Chamonix
There are 2 lift pass options, a Chamonix local pass and a Mont Blanc Unlimited and with 90% of the ski areas above 2000m you can be sure of good snow coverage even during early/late season weeks. The local lift pass covers the main ski areas in the valley, whilst the area pass includes access to the spectacular Aiguille du Midi lift, together with the mountain trains and the top station of the Grands Montets ski area (well worth a look!). The area pass also offers a free days skiing in the Italian ski resort of Courmayeur, a 30 minute free bus ride from Chamonix.
The Aiguille du Midi lift – the world’s highest vertical ascent cable car – is well worth a visit. Not only are the views from the summit (3,842m) spectacular, you’ll also get a great view of the famous Mont Blanc peak.
