Cheap ski hire Chamonix
Chamonix Mont Blanc is considered by many to be the mecca of extreme winter sports, boasting iconic steep slopes and some of the best off-piste in the world. As such a popular and well celebrated resort, Chamonix visitors need to be prepared to spend a certain amount of their time queueing and travelling – the slopes are spread between 5 mountain tops – but the reward is a long descent down some of the most breath-taking scenery. Though usually shortened to just Chamonix, the town of Chamonix Mont Blanc owes a huge amount to its spectacular mountains namesake, which combines striking magnificence with serene landscapes and views. The atmosphere in the town mirrors this; while the 10,000 inhabitants and countless winter sports enthusiasts ensure that Chamonix is a large town in constant growth, its old buildings have kept their sedate Victorian look and the traffic-free centre offers very pleasant walking.
Chamonix's après ski starts before the lifts closes and goes on until the early hours of the morning, with a lively and very active mix of bars, pubs, and clubs. The restaurants here are of top quality too, with Bistrot and Albert Premier both offering superb in-resort eateries with a combined 3 Michelin stars between them. Off-mountain pursuits include ski jeering, dog-sledding, snowshoeing, ice skating, and a host of indoor activities besides.
The skiing in Chamonix is renowned for extreme off-piste, near-vertical descents, and high-altitude Alpine slopes. Made of four mountains and with a total on 155km of pistes, Chamonix has both fantastic quality and enormous quantity; the Vallée Blanche is well known as one of the best off-piste runs in Europe, taking advantage of the spectacular scenery from the Aiguille du Midi Mountain. Don’t be intimidated though, the intensive reputation hides a host of more varied slopes. The vast range covered by Chamonix allows it huge versatility, and the lower level slopes are numerous enough to keep less advanced skiers well occupied until they’re ready to take advantage of the 3853m high top lift.
