Chamonix is a winter wonderland! The Chamonix Valley is consistently rated as one of the top ten ski resorts in the world, catering for every taste and ability. Chamonix, site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924, is a city of 10,000 residents and the main resort in a valley dominated by Mont Blanc, western Europe's highest mountain (15,770 feet). Chamonix valley can boast of some of the best skiing and scenery in the Alps and a hard-to-beat list of winter sports activities. One of the world's greatest runs is the 13-mile journey down the Valle Blanche glacier and the Sea of Ice, a drop of 9,200 feet; highest lift-served vertical descent in the world. Chamonix has six separate ski areas in the valley. They have a total of more than 90 miles of prepared slopes and trails and 49 lifts. Particularly popular with powder skiers and snowboarders is Les Grands Montets, which rises above the village of Argentiere which is near Chamonix. Noted for its tough terrain, the area's 20 miles of groomed runs are 50 percent, serious, black and only 10 percent easy. The vertical is just short of 6,800 feet. No one gets bored.

Visitor Reviews of Chamonix

Athan from Belgium writes:

The 'king is naked', and the management has to realize it....
Maybe 100 years ago, when alpinism was an unknown word, the area gathered thrilled pioneers of the mountains and the winter sports. But in the era of snow resorts like Tignes, Trois Vallees or Sankt Anton am Arlberg (AT) this resort seems like an old aristocrat in decadence. The extremely variable weather and the almost always poor snow quality are obvious reasons for not opting for this "famous" resort. Besides, the 50Euros day pass gives access to only one ski resort (of the size of Bansko in Bulgaria) and not to three as the management claims: it requires at least one hour from base-station to base-station to change a station; if you decide so in the middle of the day. All in all, the day pass is overpriced, unless you include in the evaluation the breathtaking scenery; if the weather allows it. The unusual "offer" to cross the tunnel and to ski in Italy requires not only a respectful amount of money and but usually some time spent on the long waiting queues of the tunnel. Local transportation is very poor and a personal car is more than essential. However, the use of public transportation is strongly recommended but never actualized by the local authorities. Above all, in sustainable developed ski resorts of Austria (and elsewhere) the reimbursement of the ski card is self evident. The obligatory possession of the ski card does not influence the will to return back to a ski resort with so many disadvantages.
