Chamonix-Mont-Blanc OVERVIEW

It's here at the foot of Mont Blanc where the serious Alpine action takes its kicking place! Chamonix is a legendary French winter sports resort where world-class skiers, maniac boarders and indefatigable climbers swarm in for the best of adrenaline powered slopes, pistes and rock faces. No wonder. The somewhat Himalayan scenery is spectacular, the cable cars or a little red mountain train take you up for some mind-blowing vistas of the glacier valleys and back in town, with the perfect après-ski facilities and delectable cuisine, you feel blissfully tired and relaxed. With Western Europe's highest mountain, Mont Blanc, rising up high over the site, the skiing here will surely be of a challenge to the very best. No sweat, the lesser mortals will find some less demanding slopes as Chamonix is in fact a series of separate resorts - Les Houches, Le Brévent, La Flégère, Grand Montets, Balme,  Le Brévent and La Flégère, ready to provide loads of snow fun for everyone.
