Chamonix Resort

Chamonix Ski Resort Guide

Mont Blanc is an authentic and lively town located one hour’s drive from Geneva (Switzerland). This resort has over 100 shops, 12 bars/nightclubs and 115 restaurants. The town is a great destination if you have non-skiers in your party with a fabulous variety of activities.  Most skiers choose one area to explore each day and those with children in ski school will need to plan their skiing and meeting places accordingly.

Ski buses (free for guests) connect the five main ski areas in the valley, including the 20km long Vallée Blanche mythical off-piste skiing (mountain guide recommended).  Also included on an MBU pass is Courmayeur in neighbouring Italy and if you purchase a pass for 6 days or more, Verbier (Switzerland) is also included. The local Chamonix valley has an abundant variety of slopes, the more adventurous can ski the famous slopes of the Grands Montets area, or the Brevent-Flégère for intermediates and expert skiers.  While Le Balme and Les Houches have some more gentle slopes.   The lower situated beginners’ areas are at La Vormaine, Le Savoy, Les Planards and Les Chosalets.
