Chamonix | Ski Resort | My Swft Snow



Set beneath the stunning cliffs and glaciers of the Mont Blanc massif, Chamonix is a charming and lively ski town just an hour’s drive from Geneva airport.


Considered by many to be the birthplace of alpine skiing, Chamonix first went up in Victorian times before hosting the 1924 Winter Olympics, the first of its kind. The resort itself bustles with activity and a pleasant pedestrianised centre-ville is home to a range of bars, restaurants and mountain-technical shopping. Smaller neighbours Argentières and Les houches offer a quieter base with no less spectacular skiing.


Throughout its existence, Chamonix has been the benchmark for challenging ski terrain in Europe and with the village at just over 1,000m and the peak over 3,800, there is plenty to keep the knees warm. La Vallées Blanches, the famous 20km glacier run, takes the headlines and the best can push themselves to the extremes in a number of locations, but there are plenty of beginner slopes lower down and wherever you are, the scenery is spectacular. This is one of the few resorts with hotels geared towards a shorter stay, ask your travel concierge for more details.
