Near-ver­ti­cal peaks rise from a 10-mile long val­ley and reach for the skies around the most iconic and old­est ski re­sort in the Alps: Cha­monix Mont­Blanc. Nes­tled at the base of Mont Blanc in the French Alps, Cha­monix is a mag­net for ex­treme sports en­thu­si­asts from around the globe all year round, who are drawn by its chal­leng­ing runs, dan­ger­ous off-piste ar­eas and su­perb land­scape. Said to be the birth­place of Alpine ski­ing, the first ever Win­ter Olympics was held at the Cha­monix, back in 1924. One of Europe’s most snow-sure ski spa­ces, Cha­monix of­fers high-alti­tude ski­ing be­tween late Novem­ber and May on its four alti­tude ar­eas—Brévent-Flégère, Les Grands Mon­tets, Balme-Val­lorcine and Les Houches—and sev­eral val­ley ski ar­eas be­sides, in­clud­ing Le Savoy, La Poya and Le Tourchet. Each ski area, how­ever, comes with its own set of chal­lenges. Après ski par­ties at Cha­monix are both bois­ter­ous and en­gag­ing.
