Customer Travel Tip: Do check the weather and snow conditions before planning your visit.

Liked: No need to give Chamonix an introduction as its the French Haven for Skiers and Snowboarders for Off-piste Skiing. Always a pleasure to be here either to Reach for the high mountains or visit the Glacier. Skiing has always been the favourite thing to do for this town

Disliked: Given the laid back atmosphere it is known for, can't complain much about this lovely small town
