Photographer's Note

Beautiful houses covered by the snow. A pleasant place to visit

I hope you like it !

The Chamonix Valley stretches from Servoz to Barberine on the Swiss border. The main towns (working up the Valley from Servoz) include Les Houches, Les Bossons, Chamonix, Les Praz, Argentiere, Mont Roc / Le Tour, and Vallorcine.

Ski areas: Chamonix is not a ski in - ski out purpose built resort, but rather a town which became the world capital of mountaineering and developed into a world re-knowned ski resort. It is actually 5 ski resorts and one famous off piste lift access (the Aiguille du Midi).

The main ski lift areas (working up the Valley) are:
* In Les Houches = Les Houches,
* In Chamonix = Le Brevent and the Aiguille du Midi (off piste only)
* In Les Praz = Flégère
* In Argentiere = Les Grands Montets
* In Le Tour/Vallorcine = Le Tour/Balme Header...
Flégère is interconnected with Brévent. Le Tour/Balme is connected by lift to Vallorcine. The snowpark is in Les Grands Montets. There are other smaller beginner lift areas including Les Planards in Chamonix.
