The Chamonix Resort Guide

Chamonix is a vibrant ski resort town located at the foot of the famous Mont Blanc – the highest mountain in the Alps standing 4,807m high. The lively town is pedestrianised so you can enjoy a scenic stroll through the streets whilst enjoying the huge range of sunny terraces, stylish boutiques, gastronomic restaurants, bars and museums. From arts to sports, there is no shortage of activities for both skiers and non-skiers in the party to get involved with.

Skiing in Chamonix
If you’re a ski enthusiast, Chamonix has a variety of slopes suitable for all levels of skiers. For the intermediate skier, you can ski the famous slopes of the Grands Montets area, or the Brevent-Flégère. For the less experienced who would prefer some of the more gentle slopes, Le Balme and Les Houche are ideal. However, if you are an absolute beginner, you can have a go at some of the lower situated areas at La Vormaine, Le Savoy, Les Planards and Les Chosalets.

We recommend getting the Month Blanc Unlimited ski pass for access to the ski areas of Chamonix, Les Houches and Megève-Evasion Mont-Blanc. This ski pass covers some of the most challenging skiing in the Alps with over 470km of slopes, and a range of options for beginners as well.

Eating and drinking in Chamonix
Le Fer à Cheval has an extensive wine list for your perusal and serves fantastic French cuisine.

The Monkey Bar is ideal for its apres-ski ambience with live music, happy hours, ping pong and food.

Facilities in Chamonix
The sports centre ‘Centre Sportif Richard Bozon’ includes 2 indoor heated pools, gym, spa, ice rink, indoor climbing walls and tennis and squash courts.

You can also find other activities in Chamonix including snowshoeing, paragliding, cog-railways, husky sledding, and snow trails. The lifts and cog railways can also give you access to beautiful viewpoints and mountain restaurants.

For families staying in Chamonix, there are ski schools available for children aged 3-12 years old. You can find a list of babysitters available in the Tourist Office. We recommend MeriNannies for a first class, professional and flexible childcare service.

Travel in Chamonix
Chamonix is a one hour drive from Geneva airport. From Calais it’s about an 8 hour drive.

Once you’re in Chamonix you can get around the town easily on foot. There’s a free bus and rail service throughout Chamonix Valley making it easy to visit the villages and hamlets nearby.

Reflect To Refresh Your Brain & Life

Success Thoughts

“Power is so characteristically calm, that calmness in itself has the aspect of strength.”

Edward George Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873)

Daily, multiple times per day we need to take a mental break. It doesn’t matter if you are twelve or ninety-two, we all need this.

It is a simple process. I know you are busy and have a lot on your mind. There are many important personal and professional things to attend to. Yet you need a moment to relax, refresh and feel the good that surrounds you.

It’s good for your mind and body to reflect. Take a few seconds to reflect on each of these thoughts. It will add some lift to your day.

–What is something near you that you appreciate having?

–Who is someone who loves you and is there for you?

–What about your health is good?

–What is something you recently did that you enjoyed?

–What is something you find humor in?

–What can you do to help someone, and how would you feel when you do it?

–Relax your mind and body and notice how peaceful that is?

–What do you have coming up that you are looking forward to?

–Who do you get to see today at home or work that you really like?

–What contribution have you recently made?

–What vacation did you take that you greatly enjoyed-and why?

–What is one thing you can do today to take even better care of yourself than you usually do?

If you don’t take exquisite care of yourself–who will?

Take a moment to reflect on one or more of these positive focused thoughts regularly. Print this list out and keep it where you will see it daily. Choose one and then spend a little time thinking about it and the richness these types of thoughts bring in to your life.

Take a moment today to pause and reflect.

Yes, there is covid in the world.

Yes, you could have more money or toys.

Yet life still has richness, beauty and wonder.

Take the time to notice all the good surrounding you.

It may not be perfect but there is still much to feel gratitude for.

As you go through your day today take pauses to reflect.

Don’t live today accidentally. Intentionally look for the good in your life.

When you see it, pause for a moment and feel gratitude for the good

Make today a great day! Dr. Larry
