Skiing the Vallee Blanche
If Canmore/Banff are the center of the ice climbing world there is no doubt Chamonix is the cultural, and environmental center of the ski world!
Skiers coming down from the Midi Tram
Imagine skiing down 18km (over 11 miles) and 2800 meters (over 9000 feet) meters from one 30 minute lift ride. Virtually the elevation drop from the top of Mount Rainier to Paradise in one run with "easy" access. The scenery and terrain is second to none. And a chance for you to ski into Italy for lunch and back to France for dinner!
"The Vallee Blanch is certainly one of the BIG draws here but there are 5 other world class ski areas we can easily access on free public transportation. (it is included in your lift tickets) . Any one ski area here in Chamonix would swallow Crystal and Alpental, whole, with room to spare for terrain and acreage."
Dane sez, "I've been lucky enough to heli ski in Alaska and Canada and skied most of the big resorts on in the Western US and Canada. There is simply nothing like and no real comparisons to be made for Chamonix as a skier. You can really enjoy skiing in Chamonix at any skill level. That is part of the real magic here I think. Chamonix will simply change your life, I guarantee it!".
