    Mountains rule in Chamonix, France. Some of the world's best expert skiing can be found on Chamonix’s jagged peaks and glaciers that rise 12,500 feet above the valley floor. Chamonix, or “Cham” as the locals and core skiers call it, has more of an authentic alpine flair than the glitz and glamour you’ll find at some European resorts. Chamonix is renowned as an avid mountaineer destination, so you can expect to see a lot of advanced skiers and boarders schlepping climbing equipment around, many of who have traveled to experience the revered terrain from all over the world.

    Tucked beneath the shadow of the 15,767-foot Mont Blanc—France’s treasure—the power and beauty of this area are unmatched. This “bucket list” destination is the oldest ski area in the French Alps and is popular as a destination and spot for a weekend getaway. Chamonix’s village is brimming with tons of shopping too, from jewelry stores and designer boutiques to high-performance outdoor gear shops. Outdoor enthusiasts can also enjoy an extensive Nordic trail network, ski touring and winter paragliding. As far as your evenings go, be sure to check out the casino and the variety of other hot spots for nightlife. The Mont Blanc ski pass also includes access to Evasion Mont Blanc Megève, Courmayeur, Italy and Crans Montana, Switzerland. Please note that access to these areas is only available with an Unlimited Mont Blanc Pass for 2 or more days. With a pass for 6 or more days, you'll also have access to Verbier, Switzerland.
