Chamonix Ski Resort
Chamonix is the go-to destination for expert skiers, mountaineers and climbers. Its name is synonymous over the world with challenging steep runs, extreme off piste terrain, and striking alpine scenery.
The valley is home to four ski areas – the Grands Montets, Brévent-Flégère, Les Houches and the Domaine de Balme – and limitless off piste terrain. Each possess some seriously tough runs, but there are also options for beginner and intermediate skiers and boarders. Getting between them requires using the valley bus service – which could do with some improvement – or driving to the lifts each morning.
Chamonix is a long-established, year-round working town, with a permanent population of around 12000. This in turn means it is lively and is very well catered for in terms of après, restaurants, shops and accommodation.
The resort is home to the second Ski Club Freshtracks Chalet and there are 17 weeks of holidays based here throughout the winter. From All Mountain Development trips to challenging Day Tours holidays, there is something for everyone and this is the best way to experience the best that the Chamonix Valley has to offer. Course only options are also available if you’d rather choose your own accommodation.
You can also take advantage of the Ski Club’s Instructor-led Guiding Service this winter, based just along the valley in Argentière. Sessions can be booked between 22nd December and 13th April.
