Skiing in Chamonix
Steep big mountain terrain, epic freeriding, glacier skiing and pumping après, Chamonix is a powder hound’s dream!
Situated at the base of Mont Blanc, which at 4807 m is Western Europe’s highest mountain, the skiing is split across five distinct areas serviced by a free ski bus. A huge variety of terrain is on offer from beginner slopes to tree runs and some formidable off-piste. It’s safe to say that on its day Chamonix boasts some of the best off-piste skiing in the Alps.
