Winter in the Chamonix Valley: Chamonix valley is one of the most famous skiing and snowboarding areas in the French Alps. Sat at the foot of Mont Blanc, Europe's highest mountain, Chamonix itself is a vibrant town that swells ten-fold every season with holiday makers keen to take advantage of the valley's easy access to the mountains.
Skiing in Chamonix takes place primarily in five distinctly separate ski domaines. Entering the valley first you pass Les Houches with its stunning views of Mont Blanc.
5km further on you enter Chamonix town and the Brevent lift system that links to La Flegere lifts to create the biggest and sunniest domaine.
Another 5km brings you to the village of Argentiere and Grant Montets. Reaching up to 3,300m the upper area is off-piste heaven and the lower slopes great piste.
At the back of the valley lies Le Tour, renowned as the most 'family' of all the domaines.
For all it's pisted runs Chamonix is just as famous for its off-piste and ski mountaineering.
Summer in the Chamonix valley: Summertime in Chamonix in the French Alps is no less action packed than winter. With Mont Blanc sat right above it the valley is a Mecca for rock climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking, paragliding or just walking in some of Europe's most spectacular mountains.
Chamonix's lift system works through the summer taking mountain enthusiasts high into fantastic terrain. On the south side of the valley the Aiguille de Midi lift takes you in two hops up to nearly 4,000m where you get access to the glaciers and rock faces of Mont Blanc.
Opposite lies the Brevent which offers access to the sunnier side of the valley and brilliant hillwalking and rock climbing.
The halfway stations of both the Brevent and the Aiguille de Midi have world class paraglider launches and tandem flights are easily found in town
Les Houches and Grand Montets are the prime locations for down hill mountain biking and
