Conquer the slopes and aprés ski in Chamonix
Adventure, and après-ski, awaits you in this quaint French village at the base of Mont Blanc.
Over My Head
Chamonix is home to two world-renowned cable cars, the Brevent line and Aiguille du Midi line. Both offer stunning 360° views of Mont Blanc and the valley. While the Brevent is often less crowded, the Aiguille du Midi is the highest point reachable by cable car in the area and holds the world record for highest vertical climb.
Alpine skiing isnt the only thrilling activity that Chamonix offers. In the winter, adventure seekers can find whatever their heart desires, from cross-country skiing, freeriding, snowshoeing, snowboarding, or if you want to get real fancy, skiing while being pulled by a horse, also known as skijoring.
There's no better place to get your European winter vibe fix than Chamonix, a quaint little village right at the base of Mont Blanc. You’ll be skiing down Western Europe's tallest peak; talk about big mountain energy. The Chamonix Valley contains multiple slope areas, making it one of the most popular destinations in Europe for powder shredders of all levels and an ideal location for a bumping daily après-ski.
For those of you looking for a serious challenge, it’s a legendary location for some of the toughest off-piste skiing around the world. And if you’re a beginner snow bunny, Chamonix offers a few areas to hone your craft, one even including the famous magic carpet. With over 105 miles of terrain, no matter which trail you decide to take, the ride will be one to remember.
We'll be spending our days knocking back brew-skis with our fondue. It’s all about warming comfort food in the chilly Alps. The variety is almost as large as the different slopes. Feeling fancy? Check out some Michelin-star establishments. Or hit up a local French restaurant for their 'Plat du Jour' (dish of the day), usually made up of meat, potatoes, and veggies. The building blocks of every hearty meal.
Looking for a refreshing beverage post-meal? Good thing this is après-ski central. We wouldn’t be surprised if Chamonix invented the après-ski -- it’s that good. Expect tables to be danced on, drinks to flow freely, and a party scene that goes well into the wee hours. It’s a bad place to be a beer.
With the tallest mountain in Europe waiting for you to tear up, slope-front accommodation, lift tickets at the ready, fitness programming by some of the best coaches in the industry, spa access to relieve your sore muscles, and much more included in our Chamonix ski travel experience, there is no need for you to look further for your once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Chamonix is where nature and tradition blend with sports and leisure. It offers you the opportunity to take a step back, connect with your inner adrenaline junkie, and create moments you’ll share around the dinner table for years to come. It’s a place that reminds you that there really can be more to life than the 9-to-5. And who doesn’t need a little break from reality once in a while? Join us. The slopes are calling; will you answer?
