Frequently voted the #1 ski destination in the world, Chamonix-Mont-Blanc is undeniably the home of winter sports. This vast mountain town boasts the most diverse ski terrain in the world – a fact that keeps top skiers returning to the resort, year-after-year.
Since hosting the first ever Winter Olympics in 1924, the resort has gone from strength-to-strength. Boasting the mantel of oldest resort in Europe, and sitting beneath the iconic Mont Blanc – on which the highest cable car in Europe ascends to a dizzying 3,842m – it is little wonder this is the most well-known resort in the Alps.
Characterised by stunning views and spectacular mountains, the resort is a ski purist’s dream.
The lower levels are home to a variety of nursery slopes and beginner pistes – ideal for those finding their feet. Ascend into the mountains and discover endless trails of blues and reds that sit beneath the sun and provide the perfect setting for advancing the intermediate’s technique. Then to the advanced…
Chamonix is the dare-devil’s dream with steep powder chutes that flow down from Les Grands Montets and guided off-piste tours through the Vallee Blanche – renowned for being the longest off-piste stretch in Europe. For speed-demons – head to the World Cup piste of Kandahar or the death defying blacks of Brévent-Flégère.
Still hungry for more? Frequent heli-trips depart the centre, while others choose to tackle vertiginous ice climbs or even ascend Mont Blanc itself.
Such is the nature of the town that there is a very established year-round community. This cosmopolitan town is a vibrant mix of locals, young entrepreneurs, international artists and extreme sport enthusiasts. This is certainly the most diverse resort of the Alps.
The single thing that unites? A burning passion for the mountain. With acclaimed Savoyard dining and several Michelin starred restaurants to satisfy the hungry masses as well as a very established après scene, there is a constant vivaciousness to the region that is rare in Alpine villages.
