My name is Iain and my wife, Penny, and I have have lived in the Chamonix Valley for 5 years and enjoyed every minute of it. As keen skiers we attempt to maximise the quality of our time on snow. The purpose of this site is to provide unbiased information about skiing in the Chamonix Valley and surrounding areas both on and off piste. The blog will not be dealing with the “radical” end of skiing so if you are looking to jump off a cliff or ski a 55 degree slope this is not the site for you. I will also try to link in advice on equipment, safety and snow conditions.
