Hotels in Chamonix
Chamonix – full name Chamonix-Mont-Blanc – is a world-famous destination for skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports. It's appropriately twinned with Aspen in Colorado.
The Alpine fresh appeal of Chamonix
Chamonix Hotels tend to get booked up well in advance of the ski season. Alongside the trademark ski chalets and apartments, accommodation options include those with Michelin-starred restaurants, all-inclusive stays, boutique hotels and budget hotels.
Skiing and snowboarding
The first ever Winter Olympics were held here in 1924. The quality of the facilities at Chamonix is world class – this is where ski instructors come to get fully trained and qualified.
Everyone can have a go, whether it's your first time on a nursery slope or you feel the familiar rush of a cruising piste. There are several ski schools in Chamonix, with summer courses and private lessons on offer. If you need to hire equipment, at least 20 rental and hire shops operate in the town. Local CHX Ski Rental will even deliver.
The north side of the summit at Mont Blanc is technically part of the town. It's the highest mountain in the Alps, on the invisible line between France and Italy.
Gouter Hut and Cosmique are the two most popular routes used when climbing Mont Blanc. Both involve stops at a refuge along the way – for Gouter Hut, this must be booked in advance. These are typically open from early summer until September, and this period is the ideal time to go climbing.
During the summer, the majority of hiking trails through the nearby mountains become more accessible. Take a ski lift up to base camp, admiring the breathtaking panoramic views along the way.
Things to do in Chamonix
The ‘après-ski' entertainment can be found in the town's many bars – as can cosy log fires and live music performances. Visitors to Chamonix aren't short of places to grab a drink and a bite to eat.
Chamonix also boasts an art gallery, bookshops, souvenir shops and an Alpine museum. The museum is inside the former Chamonix Palace, built at the turn of the 20th century.
Wander around the very walkable centre of Chamonix, or buy a ticket for the mini tourism train. The guided tour takes place in six languages, including English, and aims to show you all of the important local sights.
