Today, Chamonix is a fairly large ski resort. People travel here from all over the world and the occupancy rate is high regardless of the time of year. During peak season, you’ll be sharing the slopes and most other attractions with plenty of other winter vacationers. It never got disturbingly crowded, though – at least not during my stay.
As the village has expanded to accommodate its increased popularity, the coziness factor has certainly taken a toll. However, with the wide range of hotels, restaurants, ski resorts and, above all, the easy logistics getting there and back, makes Chamonix one of the world’s best ski destinations.
