Chamonix

Ski holidays in Chamonix take place in a charming old village at the foot of the majestic Mont Blanc. Chamonix is a fairly large village with a remarkable history as skiing in Chamonix was first made internationally famous in 1924 when it was home to the first ever Winter Olympics. Today Chamonix consists of a combination of rustic and traditional hotels as well as modern recently-built complexes. There are plenty of activities other than skiing in Chamonix, such as ice climbing, shopping, lively bars and excellent restaurants. Chamonix ski holidays are not to be missed.

Chamonix Mont Blanc

The beautiful ski resort Chamonix Mont Blanc is situated at the foot of the mighty Mont Blanc which is one of the highest peaks in Europe. It is known as the "gateway to the European Cascades." So if you are looking for breathtaking views and perfect runs, you have made the right choice.

The lessons start on Sunday.

When selecting your lessons you will be asked for your level:

Beginners: Select beginners if you have never skied before.

Average: Can you already turn and break? Chose average lessons.

Advanced: Can you already ski well yet wish to improve your technique? Opt for advanced.

2. Ski and snowboard rental can be specified immediately upon booking.

When you book Gold or Diamond ski equipment you can exchange it once a week for free, for snowboard equipment or freeride skis (unavailable on weekends).

The following types of material can be booked:

Bronze

This material is ideal for beginners and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. This material is particularly agile, so it makes turning and breaking easy. Parallel skiing is also possible with these skis.

Silver

This is ideal material for intermediate skiers and snowboarders. The material is agile, but also suitable to cut corners sharp. Even at high speeds these skis provide great performance.

Gold

These skis and snowboards are made of high quality material, and are perfect for experienced skiers. This comfortable material is suitable on all track types and snow conditions.

Diamond

These are high performance skis and snowboards with the latest technology, and are suitable for the most experienced skiers.

TIP: Tell our rental partner your exact requirements (eg off piste skiing) so they can help you select the right material.
