About Chamonix, France

Mountains rule in Chamonix France. Some of the world's best expert skiing can be found on Chamonix’s jagged peaks and glaciers that rise 12,500 feet above the valley. A proving ground for alpinists, mountaineers and skiers from all over the world, Chamonix, or “Cham” as the locals and core skiers call it, has more of an authentic alpine flair than resort glitz and glamour. Chamonix is renowned as an avid mountaineer destination, so you can expect to see a lot of advanced skiers and boarders schlepping climbing equipment around. Tucked beneath the shadow of 15,767-foot Mont Blanc—France’s treasure—the power and beauty of this area are unmatched.

This “bucket list” destination is the oldest ski resort in France, and is popular as both a destination and weekend trip. Chamonix’s village is brimming with tons of stores, from jewelry stores and designer boutiques to high performance outdoor gear shops. Outdoor enthusiasts can also enjoy an extensive Nordic trail, ski touring and winter paragliding. The casino and a variety of nightlife hot spots will fill your evenings. The Mt. Blanc ski pass also includes Courmayeur, Italy, and Megeve and Les Contamines, France.
