Here’s a resort that is as cool as it sounds – Chamonix in France. This is a long standing resort and dates back all the way to 1907. Through the turn of the century and beyond, it has garnered a reputation as one of Europe’s finest skiing resorts. Anybody that has a love for the mountain and iced slopes should pay Chamonix a visit. Many consider it the informal snow capital of the world and it is a haven for skiers and snowboarders. There is a lot of terrain for you to christen with your equipment. An incredible 80 pistes and trails which loosely translate into about of 762km of ski runs is a mighty large play area for you to run wild. Visitors are able to ski in winter or summer thankfully. The ski trails are kept snow kissed thanks to the awesome snow cannon of Chamonix – over 96 of them! Unfortunately you can’t ski at Chamonix after dark but the daytime splendour certainly makes up for that.
