Winter in Argentière and the Chamonix valley: skiing, snowboarding and climbing Mecca.

Home to the first Winter Olympics, a pioneer in snowsports holidays and the place where man first considered that mountains had any recreational use:  the Chamonix valley has the pedigree. It exerts irresistable magnatic pull for people shredding winter sports’ boundaries and those who want to see if their skis, or board, or ice axes, can keep up.

For winter holidays these ancient and modern traditions combine with the best mountain scenery in the world to offer an unforgettable trip whatever your age, ability and preferred sport.
