A Perfect Winter Day in Chamonix

Iconic Mont Blanc, the tallest peak in the Alps, is the star venue of wintertime pursuits in Chamonix, but there are plenty of other cold-weater activites, too: Try climbing (and then rapelling) a frozen waterfall or ice-skating as the sun sets over Chamonix Valley. End your day with dinner – perhaps a hearty fondue – enjoyed beside the fireplace in one of the area's many outstanding restaurants.
