A Ski and Travel Club in San Antonio, TX

Chamonix-Mont Blanc Trip, January 31, 2019 – February 8, 2020

CHAMONIX-MONT BLANC

January 31 – February 8, 2020

How about a ski vacation in the land of Europe’s highest peak and the world’s first Winter Olympics? Chamonix, France, practically invented our favorite sport. This area is home to Europe’s highest peak, Mont Blanc. Today this fantastic area attracts skiers, hikers, tourists, and, need I say, shoppers, from all over the world. 

Chamonix is in the French Alps on the border with Italy and Switzerland. In fact, in addition to enjoying the four resorts right in Chamonix, you may find yourself skiing at nearby resorts in these other Alpine countries. This will be an international experience of a lifetime!

This area boasts everything from beginner to expert ski runs. Our hotel, located right in the heart of Chamonix within minutes of some of the world’s greatest terrain, boasts its own ski school, guides, and pro shop. The full price includes not only air, lodging, and great amenities, but, also breakfast and dinner in one of the hotel’s four restaurants.

So, you want more adventure? Consider dog sledding, fat tire bicycling, paragliding, Nordic skiing, paragliding, and more. So much awaits the adrenaline junkies amongst us.

How about culture? Many museums and art galleries await your curiosity. History buffs will enjoy touring old churches and homes. Our tour operator will be offering day trips to Annecy, France; Montreaux and Lake Geneva, Switzerland; and Aosta, Italy. You may arrange your own transportation – buses and trains abound! – around town and throughout the area.

Après ski is a way of life in winter in the Alps. Chamonix is well known as THE place to play after hours. Our hotel offers nightly shows, there’s a casino right in town, and the village’s discos and bars offer lively fun times each evening.

Finally, in addition to the world’s best peaks and glaciers, Chamonix offers the world’s best shopping! The village is stocked with high end jewelry, clothing, and designer boutiques. And, for serious adventurers like us, we can shop to our heart’s content at some of the world’s greatest outdoor adventure stores. This is the place to find the best ski equipment and clothing.


After a week in the mountains, how about a week in the Mediterranean? Holidaze is offering a six day post-trip to Sicily.
