Chamonix is one of our favourite ski towns for short breaks, and there are a number of reasons why. For starters, it’s one of the easiest and quickest ski resorts to get to, about 80 minutes from Geneva Airport (GVA), 90 minutes from Chambery (CHF) and a couple of hours from Lyon Airport (LYS) and Grenoble (GNB).
Once you get here, you’ve over a hundred kilometres of pistes to explore, and on top of that some incredible off-piste like the Vallee Blanche. So although you’re only here for a little while, you can still get a lot of miles under your belt (and some bucket-list runs too). There are restaurants, cafes and shops to suit anyone, plus all kinds of non-ski activities (from swimming to snowshoeing) if you’re bringing along friends who don’t ski.
Most of Cham’s short break accommodation comes in the form of hotels offering B&B – getting you fuelled up first thing, then giving you the freedom to explore the town come lunch and dinnertime. Some have spa facilities, to make your short time away super relaxing, while others are simpler 2 and 3 star lodgings if you’re skiing on a budget.
