Chamonix resort

Chamonix is one of the resorts that could argue it is the home of skiing. As the region that held the first ever Winter Olympics it is a claim that could be upheld easily. But what the traveller will find when he goes to Chamonix is some of the most spectacular regions around. The town is situated at 1100 meters with towering mountains rising up to well over 4000 meters with one of them Mont Blanc at 4810 meters the highest in the European Alps. From the top of the Aiguille du Midi lift it is possible to ride the 20 km world famous Vallee Blanche back to the town. The town itself is a mixture of bars, restaurants and mountaineering shops as this is also the home of mountaineering.
