Chamonix Resort Info
With its proud position along side magnificent Mont Blanc, Chamonix offers awe-inspiring scenery as well as amazing skiing. Chamonix's skiing does favour more advanced skiers, providing access to the Vallée Blanche, off-piste terrain to test the very best and the Grands Montets in Argentière, so beginners might feel a bit left out on Chamonix ski holidays. It is also disjointed, being made up of a series of smaller bus-linked resorts so getting about can be difficult if you're without a car.
Chamonix ski resort
Chamonix itself is a beautiful town that provides everything that you could want and more; rocking nightlife, plenty of good restaurants, things to do all year-round and it's just over an hour from Geneva airport. On the down side however, Chamonix is also pretty expensive, with shopping nearly toppling skiing as the favorite pastime.
Even so, Chamonix is one of the great resorts, one that attracts the best skiers - people who really want to challenge themselves. It retains a special aura - one that only a few resorts in the world manage to create.
