Chamonix is considered the best French resort for skiing. The town is tucked away in the scenic French Alps surrounded by stunning views of soaring snow-capped mountains and pristine glaciers. Chamonix exudes a warm, low-key atmosphere and offers a host of amenities to visitors and locals alike. Boutique shopping, wonderful restaurants and bustling bars keep the town abuzz with activity. Nearby Mont Blanc on the French border with Italy is the highest peak in the region at over 15,000 feet. Be sure to visit Mer de Glace, the Sea of Ice, one of the largest glaciers in Europe. Visitors are attracted to Chamonix for exhilarating outdoor winter sports including dog sledding, ice climbing, paragliding, snow kiting and tobogganing on rails. While Chamonix is not considered a “ski in/ski out” destination, it is one of the easiest French ski resorts to reach. Travel by plane via Geneva, by the Chamonix Express rail line that runs from St Gervais les Bains in France to Martigny in Switzerland, or drive to your Chamonix destination.
