Trip Description and Mountain Information When I think of extreme skiing, I think Chamonix. Mont Blanc has been leading the world in off piste skiing for decades. This area of the French Alps has been the center of ski videos since Warren Miller featured the area all the way back to the 1980's. (Website: Click here)
The Chamonix-Mont Blanc area boasts 11 ski areas. 5 Resorts at high altitude, and 6 in valley ski areas. This area will provide EVERY type of skiing and riding you can imagine. It's known to have some of the biggest, steepest couleurs as well as the most mellow bunny hills leading into the valley. Don't be scared off by the extreme stuff, there are more than enough mellow runs to keep anyone entertained for this long weekend trip.
This year we are staying at a hotel in the center of town.
I cannot say enough how amazing this valley is. For those who just want to enjoy the mountains and beautiful scenery, you can go sledding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, and as always APRES SKI!
Equipment Rentals: For Equipment rentals you can always check out Outdoor Recreation on Ramstein, or you can easily rent on the slopes at one of their many retailers. You can check here to start: https://www.oshopchamonix.com/fr
