Chamonix is like no other ski resort; it is a year round living and breathing town with an electric atmosphere and an adventurous outlook on life. It was one of the first ski resorts in the world and it still excites even the most celebrated skiers. The ski area is extensive and it never feels overrun by tourists. It is host to the highest lift in Europe but it is also a suitable ski area for all levels.

The restaurants in town are abundant and feature a few Michelin star gems. There is a lot of choice and you are not stuck with the usual alpine fare if you would rather dine on something rather more exotic and creative. The eateries on the mountain, however, lack a little imagination and none of them really stand out.

The bars and night life are always energetic and you can surround yourself with a wonderful mix of clientèle. Chamonix really does attract some extreme adventurers who also have an exciting story or two to share. This may not be for everyone and Chamonix does perhaps lack the glamour of other resorts such as Aspen or St. Moritz. However, if you are after incredible skiing and a good time, you will not be disappointed.

What We Like

A trip up Aiguille de Midi

The tramway up to Aiguille de Midi takes you a breath-taking 9,000 vertical feet high in under 20 minutes. The views from here, especially on a clear day are completely unbelievable.

The Freeride World Tour

Seeing the best freeride skiers in the world hurtle themselves down a mountain, trying their best to impress the judges with back-flips off vertical faces, this event needs no explanation as to why its one of the most awe-inspiring things you will ever see.

Lunch at Auberge du Bois Prin

The best combination of spectacular views and michelin-star quality food, will make this a lunch to never forget! Hidden away from the hordes, stop in here to warm yourself in front of a blazing log fire.

Après Ski at Chambre Neuf

For the ultimate experience of après ski, pop in here if you want to know how skiers really party in the French Alps. Prepare for mess and muss, no fine dining and fancy cocktails here.
