Are you one of those people that prefers the snow instead of the Sun? Do you prefer to relax on the slopes instead of the beach? If so, then a skiing trip to the Chamonix area of France could be just the ticket for you.
By coming to Chamonix, you’ll be in great spot for adventure and excitement, but not a world away from home. This is especially the case if you’re coming from the UK or mainland Europe. Winter sports are all the craze here and has been for many a year.
Chamonix has the highest mountain range west of Russia in the form of Mont Blanc. The very first Winter Olympics where held there as well in 1924 and ever since then, flocks of tourists and visitors have been coming to the area for skiing trips.
Obviously, the main reason why visitors come to Chamonix is because of the excellent slopes. There are five ski resorts in the area which provide a total of over 150 km of routes. This gives you a superb choice of routes to spend your days. If you have never skied before, then you can take some group or private lessons in order to whet your feet in the whole skiing experience.
If you are the adventurous sort, then you may consider Heli-skiing! Your guide will go with you as you fly across the peaks in a helicopter. When you arrive at the correct spot, you jump from the helicopter and snowboard or ski back down the slopes. This sport is definitely not for the faint of heart, and apart from the adrenaline buzz, there are some very serious risks associated with the likes of jumping out of a helicopter.
You can get to Chamonix from Geneva airport by using Chamonixfirst, which are a very reputable company and provide some excellent transfer services.
The area is a skiers paradise as it has slopes from easy to extremely difficult. Families and couples come out here in order to get away from all the hustle and bustle back home. The scenery is stunning and the fresh air will do wonders to rejuvenate the body and soul!
Not too many come to Chamonix and go home feeling like the need a holiday to recover from the one they just had. They feel energetic and ready to go.
And that’s the difference between a lot of sun and snow holiday trips. Something to keep in mind.
