Chamonix-Mont Blanc is one of the most iconic destination for skiers and mountain lovers.  The wonderful accommodations, fine dining and epic terrain and landscape, brings people back every year. This world renowned ski resort is made up of actually 5 ski resorts and one famous off piste lift access (the Aiguille du Midi).  

It’s no secret that Chamonix is one of the world’s most well-known ski resorts. It receives an average of 18.25 inches of snow per month, making it one of the most dependable snow resorts in the area.

You will find the best skiing in Europe here with off piste skiing a plenty and super challenging terrain.  Just be sure you hire a guide and have avalanche gear just in case if you choose to go off piste.  The most novice and advanced skiers will find suitable terrain amongst the five resorts that can be reached through free bus system.

The picturesque town of Chamonix has lots of cute shops, all of the best ski gear shops, restaurants, and cafes where you can enjoy various styles of cuisine.  I highly recommend trying the local favorites escargo, raclette cheese, fondue, crepes, French onion soup, local cheese and meat dishes.  Don't forget to leave room for the most amazing desserts and pastries from 5 star bakeries that you will find on every block.

Chamonix is famous for having an off the charts Apres Ski' scene  reminiscent of a spring break party. La Folie Douce- a luxury hotel at the base of the Brevant resort is the king of après ski across the Alps!  You will find live music, circus performers, outrageous outfits and some serious table stomping.  There are also night clubs, breweries, lounges wine and cocktail bars all within walking distance.


The weather in Chamonix is usually cold and snowy and winters can be bitter cold with day time temperatures in the 20's.  But the weather can be unpredictable so you will want to be prepared for whatever comes your way.   Follow our winter fashion packing guide to guarantee a more pleasurable vacation.
