Chamonix, France

Home to mountain extremes, Chamonix lies at the foot of Mont Blanc the highest mountain in Western Europe with a summit height of 4808 meters (15,774 ft). The Mont Blanc massif is enormous. At its widest point it’s about 10 miles across and some 25 miles long. It straddles the French-Italian border and stretches into Switzerland.

The resort of Chamonix is popular all year round, attracting mountaineers throughout the year and winter sports enthusiasts between November and May. It has earned the reputation of being both the climbing and skiing capital of the world. As such many of the worlds top mountain guides operate out of Chamonix and some have made it their permanent home. They share the beautiful valley with roughly 15,000 local inhabitants that reside in the many villages and hamlets between Les Houches at one end and Vallorcine at the other.

“Chamonix Town” was at one-time a farming village. The original and now pedestrianised village square still exists. Today it forms part of a vibrant town centre servicing the cosmopolitan crowd that flock here year on year. While sampling the local tipple you could be rubbing shoulders with anyone from Joe Tourist on a ski holiday to Edmund Hillary types back in town after five nights spent out on a freezing glacier enduring sub zero temperatures 3000 meters above the valley floor.
