Ski holidays in Chamonix

At the foot of the majestic Mont Blanc is one the world's biggest names in skiing. With a traditional, alpine aesthetic, ski holidays in Chamonix are markedly different to the archetypal, purpose-built, French resorts.

The slopes here have a deserved reputation as one of the best places in the world for advanced skiing and snowboarding. Those of the highest standard can come to Chamonix and be tested to their limits. The vast slope area is spread along a 20 kilometre' valley and exploring it will require extensive use of the bus and lift systems. Off-piste skiing in Chamonix is some of the most exhilarating you will find and a guide is mandatory. Nearby Les Houches is linked by the Chamonix lift pass, offering further wonderful off-piste skiing opportunities and alternative accommodation. Chamonix offers wonderful French cuisine for a variety of budgets and some of the most vibrant nightlife in the Alps.

Skiing for beginners in Chamonix

Chamonix certainly has enough terrain to keep beginner skiers and snowboarders occupied, however, Chamonix is not an ideal beginner ski resort. When good snow falls low in the valley, beginners can enjoy the nursery slopes of La Vormaine, Les Chosalets, Le Savoy and Les Planards, though the latter can suffer from a lack of sunshine at times. Tuition here is good - English-speaking instructors are plentiful - but Chamonix's strength is in teaching new, specialist skills to those who are already comfortable on the snow.

O fim de semana de esqui perfeito

Passar um fim de semana nas pistas de neve é plenamente satisfatório; terá tempo suficiente para esquiar e divertir-se, mas também é ideal para espantar os seus males. Quando entrar no escritório na segunda-feira de manhã, não só será invejado(a) por todos na sala de reuniões, como também terá o seu subsídio de férias intacto, afirma Gabriella Le Breton, perita em esqui e escritora de viagens.
