Ski Weekend Blog

Chamonix has always been at the forefront of the drive towards sustainability in the mountains.

Earlier this month, we hosted our 22nd ‘Warm Up Weekend’ in Chamonix. 

It was a chance to be the first to enjoy the winter’s snow and despite Chamonix coming in as a late replacement for Val d'Isère (whose winter opening was delayed), there were no disappointed faces among our guests.
