The Hotel ski in ski out in Grands Montets selected a list of some of the best winter activities to do in the Chamonix area. As a family, a couple or alone you will find activities for every taste.

The ski areas

It was in 1924, when Chamonix hosted the Winter Olympics, that the town became a must-see destination for ski and winter holiday enthusiasts. With the beauty of the mountains, the picturesque scenery, the Mont Blanc for which the region is famous, and all the activities the town has to offer, you'll be spoilt for choice. However, to experience unforgettable moments, it is wise to prepare your stay well in advance. So for your family holiday, your romantic getaway or your solo trip, think about getting organised to make the most of what Chamonix has to offer.

Accommodation, a must

The quality of your stay in Chamonix will depend above all on the accommodation you choose. Indeed, you will be spoilt for choice among the establishments that welcome tourists who come to recharge their batteries in this mythical place. However, remember to take into account the type of stay you want to make. For example, if you are planning to enjoy skiing in Les Grands Montets, a hotel nearby is certainly the best idea. You'll be close to all the amenities, but on top of that you won't have to take a shuttle to get to the ski area.

Choosing the date

Once you have chosen the accommodation in which you wish to stay in Chamonix, you should also consider choosing the right date to make the most of your getaway. Choose the best time for skiing, sledging and other winter activities by checking out the reviews and forums dedicated to staying in Chamonix. You can also check the weather forecast in advance to get an idea of what the weather will be like during your stay and then plan ahead. Good weather and a good layer of snow are the perfect combination for a successful winter holiday!

Activities to do

When you decide to enjoy your winter holiday in Chamonix, check out the activities that are available near your accommodation but also make your choice according to your desires. Do you want to enjoy your holiday with activities other than winter sports. In addition to skiing, sledging and competitions of all kinds, you can also enjoy a moment at the spa, explore the town, take the cable cars to the mountain restaurants or admire the views or take photos to immortalise every unforgettable moment of your stay. Don't forget to use our concierge service, which will be able to advise you on activities or outings to suit the type of stay you want to make.

Be prepared

When travelling to Chamonix, be aware that the weather can change very quickly. Make sure you bring several layers of clothing. Always bring sunglasses, a hat or cap and sunscreen, even in winter when the sun's rays are more reflective on the snow. The sun at altitude is very strong. Remember that storms are common in the mountains and visibility can be greatly reduced. At the first sign of a storm, get off ridges and away from waterways and try to get to a safe place.
Stay on marked routes when this happens and carry an emergency whistle, maps and a compass, and put the number of the emergency services or the PGHM in your phone. In particularly steep areas, watch out for avalanches.
By paying attention to these few details, you can be sure that your Chamonix getaway will go smoothly.
These are just a few of the things you should keep in mind when planning your stay in Chamonix, whether you are travelling alone or with your family. You will be able to experience unforgettable moments during your stay.
