What is there left to say about Chamonix? Site of the world's first winter Olympics, home to the Kandahar men's world cup ski run, and boasting the Vallee Blanche, a stunning 16kms of off-piste heaven set in the shadow of Europe's largest mountain, the Mont-Blanc. You could be forgiven for thinking that Chamonix is just a winter paradise, but it is far from that; a thriving, year-round town with 10,000 permanent inhabitants, it really offers something for everyone, from the adrenaline junkies out there to those just looking to experience some of the finest scenery they are ever likely to see. In addition to this, being just an hour from Geneva airport, it is also one of Europe's most accessible four-season resorts, so whatever it is you are looking for, visit the Chamonix Valley, you will not be disappointed.
