Chamonix

A ski tour to France

Chamonix is one of the most popular resorts in France for skiing. When you’re in the town centre, wherever you are look up and you will see the beauty of Mont Blanc, the highest summit in the alps!  4,810 metres of rock, snow, ice… a skier’s dream! 

RESORT-

One of the oldest resorts in France and famous for hosting the first ever Winter Olympics in1924, it’s close proximity to the boarders of Italy and Switzerland (In-fact Mont Blanc is of such a hight it can be seen from both Italy and Switzerland!) and of course most importantly for its cheese fondue! This classic traditional European ski resort has everything a school group could ask for and more. 

 

GB Sports provided an outstanding tour experience. They went the extra mile to make sure all ours students had a once in a life time experience and the level of preparation they did before the tour was outstanding. I highly recommend GB Sports to any school and club looking for a tour company
