Chamonix may well be famous for its world class skiing and snowboarding, but this just the tip of the iceberg in terms of its winter offering. An all year-round resort, Chamonix has something for all, whether taking a short break from the slopes, or enjoying a winter holiday as a non-skier or snowboarder. In fact, we think it is the perfect location for both mixed ability, and mixed interests groups.
Famous for its world class skiing and snowboarding, visitors are surprised to find that it offers so much more, even in winter, including non-skiers alike. So if you can prise yourselves away from the hundreds of kms of pistes, the virtually limitless skiing and snowboarding off-piste, or you want to join friends but without skiing part or all of the time, you may well find, regardless of preference, that just one week really isn't enough!
Whether you are super active, or prefer your activities a little less energetic, you can enjoy the winter snow, sports and activities. Horse drawn and huski sleigh rides, gentle walks arounds snowy meadows, snowshoeing on higher pastures, ice skating, l'Aiguille du Midi with the Void (glass platform) with great views of Mont Blanc, ice caves, train rides, swimming, indoor tennis courts, climbing (ice and indoor), the luge, and cross country skiing to name just a few!
