Postcard of the Week: Chamonix

Chamonix           Chamonix is one of my favourite resorts for several reasons. First of all, it’s huge and has great links to other resorts in the valley such as Argentiere. Secondly, it’s only a short drive away from Courmayeur through the Mont Blanc tunnel, where I spent 4 months doing a ski season during my Gap Year, so I have fond memories of that. Thirdly, you’re right next to Europe’s highest mountain, Mont Blanc at 4,810m, and you can ski the Vallee Blanche, on the glacier. Fourthly, there is a huge amount of off-piste. And last but not least, the nightlife is pretty good from what I can remember!

I’ve never been in Summer, but like most Alpine resorts, they have plenty of summer sports to entertain you, from hiking to mountain biking, to paragliding…
