Our view on Chamonix ski holidays

We think Chamonix is a special resort whether for ski holidays or for hiking and mountain biking in the summer and one you will go back to year after year.

Very few ski resorts offer such beautiful views of glaciers that flow down the valley slopes and all under the gaze of Europe's highest peak - Mont Blanc. It is one of only a handful of international ski resorts that is busier in summer than in winter making it an impressive all year round holiday destination. In a nutshell, Chamonix has it all!
