"Almost always good skiing" in Chamonix

"Almost always good skiing" in Chamonix A number of European ski resorts were recently listed by the Guardian in a top-ten list of locations for the best pre-Christmas skiing.

And for those who seek some autumnal snow action, France could be the destination to head for ski holidays in Chamonix, with the resort listed at number two in the rankings, right behind Val Thorens ski holidays at number one.

The Guardian reports that in the Chamonix valley there is "almost always good skiing" thanks to a variety of eleven ski areas which are covered by its lift pass.

Furthermore, it notes: "If the weather socks in, there is the insurance of woody Les Houches for piste and tree skiing."

Also, the publication adds, ski holidays in Chamonix also benefit from a sociable atmosphere during low ski season as it is an actual town rather than simply a seasonal ski resort - meaning that it boasts a permanent populous.

Chamonix could also appeal to those on family ski holidays thanks to its three smaller valley ski areas, which it claims are "ideal for children [and] beginners".
