Regarded as a legendary ski resort with a breathtaking view of the highest mountain in the Alps, Chamonix Mont-Blanc is a home away from home for adventurists.
With the annual cross-country ski race taking place every Spring, ski racing enthusiasts gather in Chamonix every year to take part in the 3 day competition event.
Dubbed as ‘Coupe d’Europe Ski de Fond’, the competition attracts hundreds of ski enthusiasts from all over the world. The races are free to watch and most often take place around the Desert Blanc area in Les Praz. The competition is usually held in March each year, which is the beginning of the warm period in France.
Chamonix is nothing short of diverse adventure activities. In addition to skiing, you can enjoy other leisure and sport activities such cycling, sightseeing and river-rafting. You can also enjoy the thrill of riding in a cable car- seeing panoramic views of mountains in the area such as Aiguille du Midi, which attracts over a million visitors per year.
Other events that take place in Spring is thee Spring Music Festival and the Chamonix Adventure Film Festival, a film screening and photo exhibition of adventure and mountain enthusiasts. What is nice about Chamonix Mont Blanc is that after an eventful day of activities, for those that prefer peace and quiet, they can always kick back and enjoy a swim in the pool or a glass of wine at the open bars and restaurants.
