Chamonix: Powder

Arguably the best (expert) ski resort in the world, with epic off-piste, awe-inspiring scenery and a brilliant party scene.

Chamonix is a large yet attractive town incorporating several satellite villages along a 12km-long glacial valley. It has a long mountaineering history thanks to its location at the base of Mont Blanc and its bars buzz with happy, modern-day mountain-lovers from 1600 onwards. Yes, there's a Chanel shop but don't expect glamour - locals and regular visitors wear climbing harnesses and carry ABS rucksacks, and there's accommodation and dining to suit all budgets.

Opening times


  • 13 Dec to 6 May: 0800-1700 (peak); 0830-1630 (off-peak)

Getting there


  • Geneva airport - 1.5 hours

Pros

Cons

 

Some of the world's steepest, most challenging and most scenic skiing.

Skiing is spread across five separate mountains - prepare to commute.

 

Accommodation to suit all budgets.

Not ideal for beginners or intermediates.

 

Rocking nightlife.

The mountain gets tracked out quicker than you can say 'powder'.

 

Easy to reach from Geneva.

You have to pay for the second stage of the Grands Montets cable car.
