Chamonix is a destination popular the world over. In the streets of this high-mountain town you’ll hear languages from every corner of the globe. But the people who come here share the same way of thinking, the same love for mountaineering, its legends and its ethics.
When you’re out shopping in the town centre, wherever you are look up and you’ll see ‘it’ there… 4,810 metres (15,781 ft) of rock, snow, ice and dreams of things to come.
The Vallee Blanche is probably the most famous glacier skiing route of all time.
There is also plenty to do here in summer.
