The Chamonix Valley is a truly unique ski area in the Alps. Unlike many other resorts, Chamonix was not a purpose-built resort, constructed purely for ski holidays.

All varieties of accommodation can be found here, our speciality is in luxury ski chalets with a wealth of amenities & services.
The Chamonix Valley ski area benefits from having skiing on both the north and south facing sides of the valley. It also has an area of skiing at each end of the valley. The valley is 23 km long and 2 km wide.

There is access to 5 different ski areas as well as options to ski the most famous high mountain off piste itinerary, the Vallee Blanche Chamonix neighbours the incredible Italian resort of Courmayeur.
