Ski Holidays in Chamonix

Chamonix, rightly, has a reputation as the freeride capital of the world, with skiers coming from all over the world to take on the famous off-piste, such as the ‘Vallee Blanche’.

You don’t have to be a pro though to take advantage, with a large number of intermediate pistes to discover, together with a small number of beginner slopes. The town itself offers an excellent selection of shops, restaurants and boutiques and has excellent nightlife with numerous pubs and nightclubs.

There are 2 lift pass options, a Chamonix local pass and a Mont Blanc Unlimited and with 90% of the ski areas above 2000m you can be sure of good snow coverage even during early/late season weeks. The local lift pass covers the main ski areas in the valley, whilst the area pass includes access to the spectacular Aiguille du Midi lift, together with the mountain trains and the top station of the Grands Montets ski area (well worth a look!). The area pass also offers a free days skiing in the Italian ski resort of Courmayeur, a 30 minute free bus ride from Chamonix. Lift pass prices

The Aiguille du Midi lift – the world’s highest vertical ascent cable car – is well worth a visit. Not only are the views from the summit (3,842m) spectacular, you’ll also get a great view of the famous Mont Blanc peak.

Self catered chalets

Chamonix offers a wide range of ski chalets that can be reserved on a self-catered basis - these can be seen at the accommodation tab or, look at Self catered chalets for a full list of our self catered chalets.

The town has a large number of supermarkets, café’s and banks, with internet access available from the local tourist office. The sports centre has an excellent swimming pool, ice rink, climbing wall, squash courts and fitness room, and there are a huge number of other activities to explore such as paragliding, snowshoe walking, panoramic flights, dog sleds, trips in a barouche cart and icefall climbing.

Whats new in Chamonix

First on the list is the new mini-funicular, called Funi 2000, that is currently being built at Brevent The new lift will allow beginner skiers and snowboarders easy access to the Planpraz plateau and the Téléski 2000 poma from the Planpraz gondola station. 

The new Melezes Chairlift in Les Houches will replace the “La Cha” and the “Chamois” drag lifts. Not only will the new chair be faster and more efficient, it will also be safer and will slow right down at the top and bottom to make getting on and off a lot easier. It will open up a completely new area for skiers.

Les Grands Montets will see a new Snowsports Area for snowboard and ski cross, with two routes: one “BMW” recreational route with video system and stopwatch, perfect for family souvenirs; and another route that meets FIS standards for enthusiasts and ski and snowboard clubs.

The BMW route will be 400m in length and include 3 jumps, 8 whoops and 2 banked turns. While the Enthusiasts route will be 800m with 5 jumps, 10 whoops and 8 banked turns.

For the first year ever the MONT-BLANC unlimited pass  will give you access to the Chamonix Valley, Courmayeur… and Evasion Mont-Blanc!

The result of closer relations between the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc and Megève, the MONT-BLANC Unlimited (MBU) pass, from this winter, allows ski access to Courmayeur as well as the Mont-Blanc Evasion area of Megève, Saint Gervais, Les Contamines. Offering you one of the biggest and most stunning mountain playgrounds!

And finally a very new, very sparkly and very exciting Chamonix Snowpark! The 1000m long and 100m wide area will be situated to right of the “Téléski du Col” at Le Tour and will in fact be one of the biggest in Europe. The new freestyle area will  be served by a dedicated téléski and a 4 person chairlift and situated between 1900 and 2100m of altitude, benefiting from the significant natural snowfall. There will be several runs to cover various levels of skiers and snowboarders from beginners to advanced users. In addition a “Cool Zone” for relaxing will be be available, complete with sound-system!
