Chamonix Car Hire

The Chamonix Valley is approximately 20 kilometers long and lies between the towering Mont-Blanc range to the south and the Aiguilles Rouges mountains to the north. The community of Chamonix nestles in the heart of the Northern Alps at the crossroads of the three frontiers separating France, Italy and Switzerland.

It is in winter that the resort really comes alive Chamonix Mont-Blanc and the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc offer unrivalled sensations for skiers and snow-boarders of all levels - sunny slopes, high altitude skiing in the major areas for the more advanced skier and accessible slopes on the valley floor for the beginners and intermediates. Some examples of the range available include Les Grands Montets Partially located on a glacier this, the most famous ski area in the valley with a 2100 m vertical drop offers 2800 acres of skiing possibilities both patrolled and off-piste. The snow quality and the variety of ski runs and off-piste trails will delight the most demanding skier. Beginners will enjoy the sunny slopes of les Chosalets, located 500 m from the Grands Montets cable car.

At the northern tip of the valley, the less experienced novice will thoroughly enjoy the long blue and green runs of Le Tour / Vallorcine. This huge range of areas makes it the ideal choice for family skiing as well as for the novice. All this variety ensures the Grands Monts' reputation as a world-famous ski area remains unchallenged - season after season. But don't just think of Chamonix as a winter ski destination.
