    Known as ‘The capital of the Alps’, Chamonix really is every back-country skiers dream, offering an off-piste mecca and wonderful traditional town for those looking for real French authenticity. Its also the gateway to the phenominal Vallee Blanche!

    Sitting at the base of Mont Blanc, it has six large ski areas spread across the whole Chamonix valley. With its lively nightlife and huge array of restaurants, it really is a super choice!
