Ski Chalets In Chamonix

Chamonix, the site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924, is the main resort in a valley dominated by Mont Blanc, western Europe’s highest mountain peak. It boasts some of the best skiing and scenery in the French Alps, and a hard-to-beat list of winter sports activities. One of the world’s greatest downhill runs is the 13-mile journey down the Valle Blanche glacier and the Sea of Ice, a drop of 9,200 feet; the highest lift-served vertical descent in the world. Chamonix has six separate ski areas within the valley, offering a total of more than 90 miles of prepared slopes and trails and 48 lifts.

Les Grands Montets,which rises above the village of Argentiere near Chamonix, is particularly popular with powder skiers and snowboarders.
