Why Chamonix?

Because this is 'The Capital of the Alps' and a world-renowned French town attracting millions of skiers from around the globe. Chamonix is less a ski resort than an actual town. With a base population of 10,000, Chamonix attracts visitors all year round; extreme skiers, alpinists, trail runners and holiday makers alike. It offers some of the best expert skiing in the world as well as a variety of slopes for beginners and intermediates, with visitors able to enjoy the ski areas spread out along the 12km long valley. Resorts included on the ski pass are Les Houches, Vallorcine and Argentiere - some of the top names of French Alpine skiing. Awe-inspiring scenery, very lively nightlife and a huge choice of restaurants, shops and other amenities all add to Chamonix's appeal as a top winter sports destination. And the biggest appeal of all? This is the gateway to the infamous Vallee Blanche - something everyone should ski once in their lifetime... if you've got the guts to walk the ridge at the start!

Pistes in Chamonix

Chamonix has six different ski ares which means there is something for everything however it is quite a rugged resort with less (and older) lifts than many other resorts in the Alps, leaving much of the mountain untouched by pistes. There is a slight lack of beginner pistes and an abundance of steep skiing meaning it may not be the ideal destination for beginners.

We know how valuable your skiing time is to you so that is why we can to pre-book your lift passes for you, to save you the time and hassle of doing it once in resort. No additional charge!

The lift passes will be ready and waiting for you in your chalet/hotel/apartment, so you can hit the slopes immediately! You can book these at any time after you've booked.

Ski & equipment hire

The last thing you want to do at the start of your holiday is queue up in a crowded ski hire shop. We understand this and that is why we offer to pre-book all your equipment so that it is ready and waiting for you. You can either collect it from the shop yourself or some shops even offer a chalet fitting service, where all the equipment will be brought around to the chalet, thus avoiding the ski hire shop completely.
