1. Chamonix France Really Does Cater For All Levels Of Skiers
As the ski resort really is vast, it really is best to read the overview of the Chamonix ski resort. It really is a world class skiing experience and the expansive terrain has more than enough variety for beginners, intermediates and advance skiers.
2. The Regions Are Not Interconnected
Chamonix, France, like Aspen Colorado, runs along a valley with a commune of ski regions working in concert as a resort. However the 5 main skiing regions being so vast, are not lift interconnected. Transport is only by road and rail at the bottom of the valley.
3. Free Transport For Skiers
4. Chamonix, France Is NOT Chamonix Mont Blanc
Don't get confused with the names.
Chamonix is a collection or a commune of little villages that run along the Chamonix Valley. The page, Chamonix France gives an orientation of the commune of villages.
The main town in this valley is Chamonix Mont Blanc. This is THE happening place in the valley with restaurants, supermarkets, clubs, bars, open air parties, charming little coffee shops and tea houses, excellent shops and high end retail shopping.
5. The Resort's Major Regions
6. The Two Types of Ticketing
Try to figure out which of the passes is best value for you before you get to the ticket office. It's a little complex and you'll need to do some research as to where you'd think is the best skiing and best fun to be had.
7. Book Ahead
Trust me...the guides to Vallee Blanche are booked out early, the free buses to Courmayeur are filled to capacity in no time, and the bus to Verbier may be close to full... So, plan and book as soon as you arrive in Chamonix!
