Ski Weekend in Chamonix, France!

Skiing the slopes of the French Alps is one of the most amazing experiences. You feel so small amongst the peaks around Mont Blanc. A few friends and I had a ski weekend in Chamonix recently.

Also I’ve highlighted the best places to ski within the resort, something we couldn’t find when we were preparing. So hopefully this will prepare you more than we were.
