Chamonix: the birthplace of alpine skiing

Your go-to place for legendary skiing experiences

Skiing in Chamonix is the stuff of legend – and rightly so. After all, the famous ski resort in the shadow of Mont Blanc is regularly rated among the world’s best ski resorts. What’s more, it is considered the birthplace of alpine skiing because it hosted the first ever Winter Olympics in 1924.

The ski area encompasses the five mountains of Grands Montets, L'Aiguille du Midi, Le Brévent, La Flégère and Le Tour and spans across six separate ski resorts

The legendary ski resort is particularly popular with extreme skiers and powder heads as it boasts perfect opportunities for pushing your limits. Steep runs, deep crevasses, mind-blowing clifftops and caves: Chamonix is every freerider’s dream come true!

But rest assured: Chamonix also offers plenty of opportunities if you’re not into extreme skiing. Why not ask our RENTertainers on site for the resort’s best spots for mid-level skiers, first-timers or families? They’re sure to know the answers – and have the perfect rental equipment to go with it!

INTERSPORT Rent tip

Our RENTertainers recommend

You’re looking for a thrill to spice up your stay in Chamonix? Then you should consider tackling the famous Vallée Blanche! The 20-kilometre descent is the world’s longest and most famous off-piste run. Boasting 2,800 vertical metres, the run has several variants, including the Normal Valley, the Petit Envers du Plan and the Grand Envers du Plan.

Safety first: Keep in mind that the Vallée Blanche is only suitable for experienced skiers! Ideally, you should tackle the notorious run only together with an experienced mountain guide.
