Clip up your boots, grab your poles and jump into your skis, here are our last minute ski holidays for Christmas and New Year! The snow is tipping down and the season is well and truly under way in Chamonix.
Chamonix Current Conditions
A staggering 1m of snow has already covered the resort and what's more, there IS still some very last minute availability on private hire chalets in the area... Tempted yet? There is also lots of excellent terrain for ski-touring on skins and some fabulous and challenging runs. Chamonix is renowned for its extensive steep terrain and deep snow and to get the best out of the area a local guide is certainly something to consider.
For après ski head to the Swedish-run Chambre Neuf, which is fun but not rowdy and usually has a live band from 5pm if you're into dancing on the tables. Elevation 1904, opposite, is a bit quieter and there are also some excellent restaurants.
And just in case you weren't already convinced Chamonix is one of the most convenient locations in the Alps, being just an hour's drive from Geneva airport.
