Chamonix, the International Capital of Skiing and Mountaineering...


Chamonix Mont-Blanc, the internationally known capital of skiing and mountaineering, is also above all a ski resort with many different facets.

Chamonix, which is among the highest towns in Western Europe, is a very lively resort in winter and in summer.


A whole range of events take place throughout the year, including both cultural and sports events, such as the Freeride World Tour (in January), the Climbing World Cup, and the Cosmo Jazz Festival (in summer)...

Whether you are with family, friends, or as a couple, Chamonix offers endless possibilities for you to enjoy the mountain in all its forms, and dozens of activities await you on bad-weather days (library, swimming pool, ice climbing, casino, cinema, fitness centre, art gallery, climbing walls, museums...).

Chamonix has a multitude of sensational views for you to admire from the ski lifts and walking trails.


On the two main mountains, the Aiguilles Rouges and the Mont Blanc, you can discover these incredible panoramas by foot if you are feeling energetic or by ski lift if you like to enjoy the dizzy sensations...!





6 major ski areas are accessible from Chamonix Valley—Les Grands Montets, Brévent/Flégère, Domaine de Balme, and Les Houches.

The Intersport 4810 by Pitte shop is located in the centre of Chamonix town, near the Post Office, just a stone’s throw from the Brévent/Flégère ski area (locate the shop on a map of Chamonix).
