Chamonix is one of the most famous ski resorts in the world, and has been pioneering winter sports since the 18th century. In the valley below the towering Mont Blanc, it remains a compelling winter sports destination, a must-see for mountain lovers, and a must-ski for skiers and boarders. The towering Alpine peaks around the town and their glaciers guarantee some of the best snow in the world, and some of the most challenging skiing in the off-piste capital of Europe. There's a good variety, though, spread across a range of separate ski areas, each with their own character. All those skiers mean lots of snow services, entertainment and distractions, but it's a busy place, which hasn't been a quiet mountain village for decades.
Chamonix is really a complex of resorts these days, and if the busy main town itself isn't your cup of tea you can find quieter and more traditional accommodation in many satellite villages and hamlets. From Michelin-starred dining to the golden arches, Chamonix has everything, and lots of it. The piste skiing is divided into three main areas spread across the valley and the off-piste options are endless. This is why people come: Le grand ski.
