Chamonix is one of the oldest ski resorts in Europe and France. This resort, which is more than 200 years old, is famous for the first in the history the Winter Olympics (1924). Moreover, this place is the ancestor of skiing in general. Skiing started here in 1893.
One can confidently say that if the visiting card of France is Paris, then in relation to the Alps it is Chamonix. If we talk about the possibility of rest at this resort - in Chamonix, prices are such that it can be afforded both by very well-off people and by fans of mountain landscapes of medium-level prosperity.
The resort is deservedly considered one of the best ski resort in Europe. For two centuries Chamonix was the cradle of the mountain skiing, remains so nowadays and does not intend to take off its positions.
Chamonix is located at the intersection of the mountain tunnel under the massif of Mont Blanc (Italy) and the Monte Pass (Switzerland), at an altitude of 1010 - 1200 meters.
Chamonix is circled by the mountains from all sides - it's hard to find a place from which one of the peaks would not be visible. The most majestic view opens from a height of 3842 meters with Aiguille de Midi, where in 20 minutes you can climb by the cable car (one of the highest in Europe). It is not only the opening of a panorama of mountains, of valleys, of glaciers but also of a huge structure. And, of course, Chamonix is Mont Blanc: the highest mountain of Western Europe is visible from different points of the valley, and especially well from the slopes over the resort.
