There are lots of pros with Chamonix but also a lot of cons For the pro-there is a great town centre, good shopping (albeit very expensive) and it is near to Geneva airport. The result of Gran Montes is really interesting-this is essentially one big salute playground on a mountain. The red one is amazing as you can do off and on the piste with relative ease. I followed a intermediate group down and they went off and around the back on to the pi is really interesting-this is essentially one big salute playground on a mountain. The red one is amazing as you can do off and on the piste with relative ease. I followed a intermediate group down and they went off and around the back on to the red run. Now for the code now for the cons - went as a group of three families and you need to drop your kids off at the ski school office for them to be picked up. The lessons take place at La Plante note is i The lessons take place at Les Planards. This brings me to my main point about Charmonix - you may have heard of ski in ski out but Chamonix is ski and commute! It is not unheard-of to spend 40 to 50 minutes getting to another ski area. As they are all separate and only have a few runs each you will spend time getting about and for the skier to spend all the time skiing it can feel a bit of a drag For families it is really difficult as you will be in the position of having to walk with your ski boots on and carry your children's skis with them moaning as they will have been at school for a whole day (If they choose not to take the ski coach)
