Welcome to


Chamonix is a lively town, known as a world-class ski resort drawing an international crowd. It is consistently rated as one of the top ten ski resorts in the world and is bordered by Switzerland and Italy with vast snow-capped mountains towering above it.

The resort itself is made up of six ski areas with a bus service required to travel between them. It is worth noting that Chamonix is not a ski-in/ski-out destination, but do not let this put you off, the ski terrain on offer here makes the little effort getting to the slopes worthwhile. With 150 kms of piste you’re unlikely to get bored. The area is best known for its intermediate and advanced terrain, but there are a few great spots for learners too, particularly in the Les Planards area.

Flying - There are a few options when it comes to your destination airport; but Geneva is the recommended option because of greater flexibility for transfers and car hire to take you onto Chamonix. The transfer is 101 kms and takes around 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Train - The Eurostar glides through France directly from London St Pancras to Bourg-Saint-Maurice in a little over seven-and-a-half hours and, from there, it’s 77km on to Chamonix with transfer options available.

Driving - Drivers will find the roads through France faster and emptier than those in the UK and this is largely down to them being toll roads…so there is a price to pay! London to Chamonix takes around 11 hours and 10 minutes without stops and this includes the tunnel crossing.
