Ski Weekend Blog

It was back in the ‘Golden Age’ of mountaineering in the mid-nineteenth century that Britons first began to discover Chamonix.

As Mark Twain famously noted:

"Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated."

Although it’s great to see that infection rates are going down in Europe and life is returning to normal, at Ski Weekend we are taking our own additional steps to assure the safety of our guests this winter.

Join us in Chamonix this summer and extend your stay in Europe’s adventure capital completely free of charge.

This has been a year unlike any other for travel and tourism. We saw the ski lifts in France finish early for the season, but the last few months have seen a recovery to the ‘new normal’.

Chamonix has been leading the way. It was the first resort in France to re-open its lifts and has just announced another great innovation for tourists for this summer.

More good ‘déconfinement’ news from Chamonix as the mountain refuges have started to reopen, with new health and hygiene protocols in place.

The Haute Route is one of the world’s most famous high-altitude trails, taking you from Chamonix in the Mont Blanc valley to Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn in Switzerland.

Book now to join our Val d'Isère ‘Warm Up Weekend’, which will take place from Friday 27 November to Tuesday 01 December 2020.

While Chamonix is best known as a ski and summer adventure destination, with a list of activities to get your adrenaline pumping, the rich variety of styles of architecture in Chamonix might surprise the casual visitor.

This weekend the Aiguille du Midi cable car and Montenvers train in Chamonix both opened. They became the first lifts to start again since all ski resorts in France closed down due to Covid-19 in March 2020.
