“Great place to ski”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Choice of ski areas,offering great variety of difficulties, from off piste to green runs. Wide slopes, well looked after, although some of the lifts are rather slow !!

“Most beautiful area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

As a special treat, it snowed the two days we were here and the town looked like a post card. While we did not ski, the town was charming with its beautiful Christmas lights and decorations. We have also been here in late summer, and the town is charming in all seasons. The trip through the Mont Blanc tunnel is also a must, the views are stunning.

“Not for the faint hearted but wicked!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Chamonix is without a doubt the greatest ski area in the world if you are handy on skis or a board. Not a great resort for beginners or families as the runs are very challenging but if you like the tricky stuff, you will love Chamonix. The town itself is absolutely stunning and loads to do after you come off the mountain. I will go back again and again and again!

“Best vacation ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This place is magnificent!
Skiing is wonderful for all ability levels. Highly recommend ESF Chamonix for ski instructions, no matter how well you ski. There are multiple mountains and snow conditions may vary - the instructors will take you to the best snow.
If you do not ski - just enjoy the scenery and a ski town atmoshere.

Awesome bar - the atmosphere, the friendly bar staff and the amazing happy hour prices! Perfect bar for après ski - for groups of friends, families and couples! There's always loads going on with live music and quizzes etc throughout the week! Many thanks to all the staff for making us feel so welcome! See you next year!
