Spring skiing is definitely here – and with it comes discounted lift passes! With the exception of a couple of drizzly patches the weather recently has been wall-to-wall bluebird days and we are celebrating by offering a free day with all 6-9 day Mont Blanc Unlimited lift passes.
Take advantage of these great discounted prices and contact us now to book your lift pass:
- 6 days : 262€ (save 23€)
- 7 days : 285€ (save 32.50€)
- 8 days : 317.50€ (save 32.50€)
- 9 days : 350€ (save 32.50€)
The weather is perfect at the moment for ski touring – there’s no better way to explore the Chamonix mountains than to take a hike up and away from the lift system into the backcountry and ski back down off-piste untracked snow in the sunshine. If you go on an all day tour you can pack a flask and some sandwiches to enjoy a picnic lunch in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by stunning views and vast horizons. The best part is that you don’t need to be an amazing skier/snowboarder or gnarly alpinist, you just need a bit of confidence on off-piste terrain and a guide who knows all the best spots!
We’ve also had a heads-up from our mountain guides that fresh snow is on the way with temperatures set to drop on Sunday and Monday, before it clears up again during the week with Tuesday looking like the prime opportunity to ski the Vallée Blanche. This iconic route starts at 3812m at the pinnacle of the Aiguille du Midi, amongst the spectacular summits of the Massif du Mont Blanc. The 23km descent takes you past seracs, alongside glacial crevasses and amongst towering peaks – it really is the experience of a lifetime. Contact us now to book a mountain guide to ski or snowboard the Vallée Blanche.
This week has been a great one for adrenaline addicts, with the Chamonix Adventure Festival showing a packed schedule of films in the cinema, in bars and even on a giant screen in the centre of town. Today there is an adventure film and photo workshop taking place in the Hotel Heliopic, followed by an apres-ski screening of short films and teasers at MBC from 5pm and then full length films and Q&A with the filmmakers from 8pm at Chamonix Cinema Vox.
There are photography exhibitions up round town and another day of films and images lined up for tomorrow. The festival ends with a big party at MOÖ Bar on Saturday night from 10:30pm – check out the full schedule and details of all films here.
Don’t forget that the clocks change this weekend, so from Sunday onwards we’ll have longer days and lighter evenings – perfect apres-ski conditions!
