Chamonix

The tradition of fine skiing combined with the diversities this town can provide

The oldest ski resort in France

The main ski areas through the valley offer 50 lifts and varied terrain for skiers of all abilities. Le Brevent cable car begins just above the town and climbs to over 8,000 feet.

Les Houches, Le Tour and sunny La Flegere is where beginners and intermediates will find many trails to ski. Les Grands Montets is the most popular area for the intermediate and the more advanced skiers.

Strong intermediate and above skiers will want to accept the challenge of the Aiguille du Midi, reached by a two-stage cable car. This 7,000 foot descent on and along the glacier of Vallee Blanche includes spectacular mountain scenery dominated by Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain.

For non-skiing hours, shops brim with crafts, fine clothing and perfumes. Horseback riding, swimming, tennis and ice skating are available. The casino and a variety of night spots will fill your evenings.

Your Mt. Blanc ski pass also includes Courmayeur, Italy, Megeve and Les Contamines, France.
