Winter in Chamonix
Gateway Geneva: 2 hour bus transfer
Exceptional, from day to day!
High mountain scenery, the sheer beauty of which will take your breath away, majestic ice falls and glaciers, one of Europe's highest cable cars, cog railways that take you on a journey through time, a beautiful alpine town, witness to 250 years of mountaineering history, traditional villages and hamlets scattered along the 20km long valley and above all a heart and soul, beating to the rhythm of all those that live and love Chamonix !
Your're a snow rider... If you ski or snowboard you will enjoy the tremendous variety of terrain that the Chamonix valley has to offer. Gentle family runs through the trees, immaculate cross country pistes, amusing snow parks or mythical glacier descents such as the Grands Montets and the Vallée Blanche (guide recommended). If you're looking for new sensations, the mountain professionals also offer their services for ski touring, free-ride, ice climbing, and paragliding.
And besides skiing... Many of the lifts and cog railways also give access to exceptional viewpoints and mountain restaurants. There are marked winter hiking and snowshoeing trails, a tremendous sports complex including 2 indoor heated pools, an ice rink, keep fit and spa facilities, tennis/squash courts and indoor climbing walls...
