One of the worlds most famous resorts, Chamonix today is a mid-sized town that offers half-a-dozen separate ski areas on slopes above the length of its valley with spectacular scenery above, including Mont Blanc, Western Europe?s highest peak. Rated as one of the top ten ski resorts in the world, catering for every taste and ability. Chamonix, site of the first Winter Olympics in 1924, is a city of 10,000 residents and the main resort in a valley dominated by Mont Blanc, western Europe's highest mountain. There?s everything here from the world?s longest lift-served off-piste run to Michelin starred restaurants. Chamonix valley can boast some of the best skiing and scenery in the Alps and a hard-to-beat list of winter sports activities. One of the world's greatest runs is the 13-mile journey down the Valle Blanche glacier and the Sea of Ice, a drop of 9,200 feet; highest lift-served vertical descent in the world. They have a total of more than 90 miles of prepared slopes and trails and 49 lifts. Particularly popular with powder skiers and snowboarders is Les Grands Montets, which rises above the village of Argentiere which is near Chamonix. Noted for its tough terrain, the area's 20 miles of groomed runs are 50 percent, serious black and only 10 percent easy. The vertical is just short of 6,800 feet. Chamonix has been famous for centuries thanks to its proximity to Mont Blanc, towering above the town. Western Europe?s highest peak (4807m), first attracted summer climbers, then for the past century every serious snow sports fan has wanted to ski Chamonix, drawn to the world?s biggest lift-served vertical and the planet?s longest ski run, the spectacular Vallee Blanche. a great range of shops and restaurants and lively apres ski.
