#Chamonix Ski Resort Info


Chamonix Ski Resort is rated as one of the top ten best ski resorts in Europe. Tucked beneath the shadow of Mont Blanc - a french treasure - it has 5 separate ski areas (There are over 90 miles of groomed slopes and 49 lifts):  


Chamonix MontBlanc Ski Resort


1. Les Houches Ski Area (beginners - intermediate)

2. Le Tour Ski Area (beginners - intermediate)

3. La Flegere Ski Area (beginners - intermediate)

4. Les Grands Montets Ski Area (intermediate - advanced)

5. Aiguille du Midi Ski Area (experts)


This ski resort is ideal for intermediate and advanced skiers. However, there are also some areas for beginners and, if you’re travelling with kids, there are also nursery and kiddies programmes for them while you’re having a blast on the slopes!


This ski resort is rated as one of the top ten ski resorts in Europe for skiing in 2022 and is a fantastic ski destination for both week ski holidays and short ski breaks. 


On Esquiades.com you can choose between 2 types of ski pass when booking your ski holiday to Chamonix: 


1. Ski Pass for Chamonix Le Pass

2. Ski Pass for Chamonix Mont Blanc Unlimited. 



What’s the difference? 


The extensive Mont Blanc Unlimited Pass covers more slopes than the other option, Le Pass, including resorts such as Courmayeur through the Mont Blanc tunnel in Italy and Verbier in Switzerland. 



#Activities for non-skiers in Chamonix

What is there to do in Chamonix if you don't ski? There are other things you can do besides skiing and snowboarding.


- Snowshoeing


Anyone who enjoys being outside and surrounded by nature will enjoy this activity. Snowshoeing is a great way to explore the beautiful scenery and stay active during your vacation!


- Dog sledges


This is a nice activity if you are travelling with kids. The husky sledges can be driven by anyone over the age of 8 so that you can give your children a try! The dogs are super friendly and love it!


- Spas and massages


If you feel like taking a break while the rest is skiing, treat yourself to a day of wellness. There are tons in Chamonix ;)




#Après-ski in Chamonix


People go to Chamonix town for dinner and drinks and there are also clubs open until the early hours in the morning. 


There’s a night bus called “Chamo’Nuit” that does 4 services per evening between 8.50 pm and midnight, from Les Houches to Argentière, via Chamonix. So, you can book your accommodation at either of these 3 villages. If you are planning on staying out until late, you should probably book your accommodation in Chamonix town.


If you are planning on having a few drinks and some food, you should head to Avenue Michel Croz where you’ll find bars with food and outdoor tables and music. 


If you are more into the party scene and want to experience an authentic après-ski party, then you should definitely go to La Folie Douce hotel and it starts at 4 pm until 8pm. If you want to continue with the party, then you should head to Le Janssen Cocktail Club which is open until 1 am.
