The French Alps are a draw for winter sports enthusiast the world over. With dramatic mountain peaks and endless high altitude skiing opportunities the resorts of the French Alps attract scores of visitors every year for the winter season.
Probably the most famous of these resorts is Chamonix. Basking under the majestic Mont Blanc, Europe's highest peak at 4808 metres, Chamonix is the home of alpine sports and was host of the first ever Winter Olympics back in 1924.
Situated in the heart of the Alps, Chamonix Mont Blanc is a year round resort offering a wide range of outdoor activities; from skiing and snowboarding to hiking and biking, and much more. Chamonix is also a mecca for mountaineering and climbing.
With 90% of the ski area above 2000m, Chamonix has for many years attracted skiers looking for good snow and who also want to ski the famous Vallée Blanche or to tackle the extensive and challenging off-piste skiing.
The highest lift in the valley is the Aiguille De Midi cablecar which brings you to an incredible 3842 metres elevation. The top station of the Aiguille De Midi cablecar has a jaw-dropping panoramic view of Chamonix, the Mont Blanc, the Mer De Glace glacier, the surrounding area, and is the access point to the Vallée Blanche itinerary .
Additionally, Chamonix has five major ski stations with lift systems that operate most of the year, Les Grands Montets, Le Brévent, La Flégère, Le Tour, and Les Houches. There are also several smaller lower elevation ski stations as well, Les Planards, Le Savoy, Les Bossons, Les Pélerins, Les Chosalets, La Vormaine, and La Poya over in Vallorcine.
Set against truly spectacular scenery at the foot of the majestic Mont Blanc, the resort's setting is both unique and breathtaking. The full lift pass includes a day's skiing in magnificent Courmayeur, just a short drive through the Mont Blanc tunnel into Italy and is a treat not to be missed. The full Mont Blanc pass also covers a day in Verbier, Switzerland.
Chamonix is one of France's prettiest Alpine resorts, with an excellent range of sporting and leisure facilities, and unrivalled night-life. In short, a skiing holiday in Chamonix is one of the best all round options. Highly recommended.
Other winter sports include, ice-climbing, cross country skiing, and snow-shoeing. Chamonix maintains two cross-country ski trails, and there are many valley bottom trails that are covered in snow during the winter months.
During the summer season the lifts provide access for climbers, para-gliders, hikers, nature enthusiasts, canyoners, and mountain bikers.
