No matter what time of year you visit Chamonix, your activities will most likely involve the mountains – if not for the skiing, then a thrilling ride up the cable car at Aiguille du Midi. Back in Chamonix Valley, wander through a museum showcasing the area's winter sports history and culture, strap on some ice skates, or take a swim. Then savor the flavors of the Haute-Savoie at one of the area's many outstanding restaurants.
