Having hosted the first winter Olympics in 1924, the Chamonix valley is considered by many to be the home of alpine skiing. Located at the foot of Mont Blanc, the drastic yet beautiful scenery attracts a wide diversity of international visitors. However, the resort is perhaps best known for the more challenging summer and winter activities on offer. With five ski areas to choose from and with an altitude of 3,275m, there is no shortage of terrain for all levels of skier. The famous 20km Valley Blanche off-piste run presents a test for the more advanced. The views from the Aiguille du Midi and Grands Montets are both stunning and unique.
Unlike some prime resorts across The Alps, Chamonix is hugely popular in the summer months. While many visitors flock to the resort for the Marathon du Mont-Blanc each year, trail running is just one of the many activities to choose from. Some of the lifts operate in the summer allowing for hiking, mountain biking and parapenting for the more daring.
Chamonix is a traditional alpine town, but has an abundance of up-market shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. 100km from Geneva airport, the resort is easily accessible and continues to invest in its infrastructure in order to maintain its position as one of Europes top alpine destinations.
