For those of you who double black diamond your way through life, I’ve created my first Bite-Sized Bits. It’s Best Bits without the chat, just the facts.
First out of the gate is Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France, known as the resort for real skiers. Resort is probably the wrong word because Chamonix was a thriving village long before it was a haven for winter sports enthusiasts. Climbing Mont Blanc was the draw as early as the 1700’s. Snowboarding came much later.
Chamonix’s reputation is Caveat Inceptor (Let the Beginner Beware!), but, even I, a green piste-r found load of other activities to fill my day. Needless to say, drinking cocoa and eating cheese were two of those seasonal pursuits I performed to the best of my ability.
Don’t worry there is something for everyone, sometimes too much. Your time will fly in the blink of a snowflake.
For all those who don’t feel satisfied, more Chamonix posts to come.
NB: I was the guest of the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Tourism Board and I can’t thank them enough. My opinions are always my own!
