Vacaciones de Ski en Chamonix

Chamonix está lleno de montañas. Se pueden encontrar a algunos de los mejores expertos de ski del mundo en las montañas y en los glaciares que se elevan a 12,500 pies sobre el valle. Siendo un campo de prueba para los alpinistas y esquiadores de todo el mundo, Chamonix o "Cham" como lo llaman  los locales, puede definirse como un auténtico resort de estilo alpino. Chamonix es conocido como un destino favorito en la montaña, así que es común encontrarse con una gran cantidad de esquiadores y snowboarders avanzados. Situado bajo la sombra del Mont Blanc – tesoro de Francia - de 15,767 pies, el poder y la belleza de esta zona son incomparables.

Chamonix es el resort de ski más antiguo de Francia y es popular tanto por ser un lugar para vacacionar como por ser un destino de fin de semana . El pueblo de Chamonix está lleno de tiendas; desde joyerías y boutiques de diseñador  hasta tiendas para adquirir equipo deportivo. Los amantes del aire libre podrán disfrutar de una amplia pista nórdica, ski de montaña y del parapente de invierno. El casino y los lugares de moda para divertirse por la noche le encantarán. El pase para esquiar en Mt. Blanc también incluye Courmayeur, Italia, Megeve y Les Contamines, Francia.

Ski en Chamonix

Chamonix ofrece cinco zonas principales para esquiar a las cuales se llega a través de pequeñas aldeas en el área de la base; existen 50 lifts que transportan a los esquiadores de todos los niveles a Cham. El lift Le Brevent comienza justo en el pueblo y se eleva a más de 8.000 pies. En Les Houches, Le Tour y La Flegere los esquiadores principiantes y de nivel intermedio encontrarán muchas pistas para esquiar. Les Grands Montets es el área más popular para los esquiadores de nivel intermedio y para los más avanzados. Los esquiadores con experiencia querrán desafiarse a sí mismos en la zona fuera de Aiguille du Midi, a la cual se llega por un lift de dos etapas a 7.000 pies y desciende sobre y a lo largo del glaciar de Vallee Blanche que incluye el espectacular paisaje de montaña dominado por Mont Blanc, la montaña más alta de Europa.

We Are Chamonix!

We had a great week in Chamonix. Our hotel was a great location to town, and to the bus station - which was most important to getting to all the ski areas. Its important to have a guide as soon as you arrive to ski the Vallee Blanche and some other cool parts of Chamonix. While it isn't a beginner mountain, any intermediate and above can enjoy all aspects of Chamonix! The food is delicious, and no need to order special bottles, the house wine is always delish! Stop into Payard for some smoked saussicons! The only negative is it takes effort in Chamonix to get on the mountain, we didn't really have any ski on ski off options. Its a city, and you walk or bus to the mountains.

Memories that will last a lifetime

I have been skiing since I was a teeanger but had always dreamed of skiing the alps. Finally got it together and hooked up with a friend of mine that was living in Zurich. Flew into Geneva from JFK and took a 2 hour bus into Chamonix.

The town is lovely but what really struck me were how truly awe inspiring were the mountains. Jagged peaks of sheer rock, massive walls of snow that surrounded the village on both sides. I have skied alot in the Rockies and thought I would be prepared for how majestic these mountains were, but I was wrong. You can see why these mountains inspired generations of romantic writers and poets.

There are 4 ski areas there for all levels. I am an advanced but not expert skier. Therefore, I skied several days at Les Grand Montets. Unlike US skiing, there are huge wide open areas, similar to bowls in places like Vail, with no trees. Some is groomed, some is ungroomed and you can ski the ungroomed and when you're tired get back on the groomed. Many of the runs were massive and the lines were never bad.

We got lucky with the weather because we got dumped on. Huge amounts of powder. I did not ski La Vallee Blanche but you can see many glaciers from the expert runs.

On the last day, just for a change of pace, we took the tunnel into Italy and skiied Courceval. Besides lots of great terrainm, the food there on the slopes was even better than France. You have not eaten pasta until you've had a warm bowl of carbonara after skiing hard all morning.

As you would expect, the area is very international with people from all over the world. IF the snow is good, I guarantee it will be a ski vacation you will never forget.

Greatest Experience

I have never skiied Europe, but have been to Europe several times. The Hotel Mont Blanc is the best place to stay. Close to the Ski School, the tour office and the bus stop. It has some of the best food I have ever had in Europe and the staff is the best. The terrain is challenging and beautiful.
The Ski Instructors are very friendly and personable
I will return again soon.

Taking two children on an escorted trip was great. We loved the quaint village, eating and skiing with new (and old) friends. The kids loved skiing France, Switzerland, and Italy. Having ski guides and escorts enabled us to not having to read the trail map or bus schedules once. Now that's a vacation!

Chamonix - A skier's delight

Chamonix offers happiness for just about every type of skier. The terrain is abundant and diverse, the village provides post-ski entertainment and the food is very good. I went with an escorted group which facilitated the arrangements for guides (required for certain areas) and decisions about where to ski, but anyone with a sense of adventure will find the effort worthwhile.
