Some of the world’s steepest, and most challenging skiing, breath taking scenery, and a rocking nightlife make this one of the best (expert) ski resorts in the world.
Chamonix is not convenient, nor conventional, but it has steep, high, long, tough runs and is perfect for the adventurous and would be expert skier.
Unless you are based next to one of the half dozen separate mountains and stick to it, you will have to drive/bus each day, as the ski areas are spread along a valley almost 10 miles long. Only two of the areas are interconnected. In the shadow of Mont Blanc, it is the most famous ski town in France, and is an experience hard to beat!
