chamonix in june

by ellieharris

We will be in Chamonix next June. As it is low season do many places close ? Also will the wildflowers still be out? we are interested in nice walks, scenery etc - not skiing

by JLBG

It is not really the low season. Almost everything will be open.
A bit early for many mountain flowers but it depends when in June. Late June begins to bloom everywhere.

Hi Ellie,

Some gondola/lifts are closed until about the middle of June, ie. Mt. Blanc Tramway opens on the 14 June while some others won't open until end of June, beginning of July!
I mention this as some hikes require the use of the lifts to get to the starting point.
Anyway, some nice hikes which are not too strenuous are:

1) Le Lac Blanc. About 2 hours from the top of the Flegere cablecar.
2) The Grand Balcons, again about 2 hours each (two walks).
3) Le Chalet des Pyramides. 1.5 hours with lovely views of the Chamonix valley.

You should ensure you have good footwear (hiking boots) and wear layered clothing as the upper areas may still have snow. A backpack with plenty of water, a small first aid kit and a mobile phone which works in the area is also a must.
Go to the tourist office who will provide you with hiking details.

You should be able to see some flowers in June.

Have a lovely and safe trip,
John

Travel Tips for Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

Aiguille du Midi - 2 section...

by sandysmith

Aiguille du Midi - 2 section cable car trip in Chamonix, which starts from the valley floor and climbs to the summit at 3842m (12,605ft ). Visit the summit’s terraces, the tunnel of ice, the lift to the summit, giving exceptional views over the Mont-Blanc massif.

Skiiing, the NOT industrial way

by mariev

For some people Chamonix may be considered a "not good station" for skiing, for some others, it's fabulous.

Why those conflicting opinions ? It depends about how you want your ski holidays :

- if you want to go directly fro your hotel to the slopes, to have an unique ski pass for the complete resort, not to have to walk or to take the bus, to be sure the weather will be fine, to have a restaurant a each stop : Chamonix is not for you.
- if you don't mind a bit of walking (and, i must admit a bit of waiting while you are in the valley) but want long, long slopes, good snow, gorgeous sights when sunny, a tiny bit of adventure then it's another song.

For instance the Brévent - Flégère gondola lead you to an extraordinary panorama of the Mont-Blanc range (Mer de Glace, Glacier d'Argentière,Grandes Jorasses, ...) and in summer you can hike to the Aiguilles Rouges from there.

The reformed Compagnie du Mont Blanc is (in 2005) revisiting the lift plans and this may lead to some transformations, their goal is to retake the title of 'one of the 5 luxury stations in France' Skis and what goes with...
sunscreen, glasses, HAT , energy bars, water

Local Extreme Skiers and Boarders show their stuff

by firechick

UPDATE: Sadly I have found that the Cham Jam on year 15 is being moved to Andorra. There is talk that the moguls competition will still be held, but we shall see as the main organizers are not involved.

This is happening mainly because last year the local authorities closed down the Cham Jam final party, costing the promoters a lot of money (they had all the proper permits and were within agreed noise levels - but someone at one of the hotels complained of noise). It is too bad the officials in this town don't see the value in offering events like this to the youth of Chamonix as this event had been getting international coverage as a music and ski festival!

EVERYONE IN CHAM WOULD BE VERY HAPPY IF SOMEONE ELSE WERE TO ORGANIZE A NEW MUSIC/SKI FESTIVAL IN TOWN!!! BUT MAYBE THIS TIME TRY TO INCLUDE BOTH FRENCH AND UK COMMUNITIES IN THE EFFORT ** END OF UPDATE

The Cham Jam was held each year (for 14 years previous) in early March. It started out as a moguls competition between resort worker/skiers from various area ski resorts (Meribel, Val D'Isere, Chamonix etc.) and became a multi-day music festival and 'extreme' ski/board event. Some of the events held qualified skiers and snowbarders for the Winter X-Games competitions.

There was skier-cross, boarder-cross, moguls (boss des bosses) and a big air competition.

There also was a music festival held in various bars around town each evening.

Fear of height?

by chuying

Take the cable car, in just 10 minutes, you ride up from the ground to the mid point (plan de l'aiguille) where is about 2317m. The second stage of the cable car ride will take you to 3777m (aiguille du midi summmit). If you take the lift, you can reach the terrace at the summit (3842m, see the sign in the picture). The terrace named for the best view of Mont-Blanc., not to be missed!!

Chamonix Town Center

by chuying

At the base of the Mont-Blanc. the town village is close to train station, post office, tourist centre, many shops, restaurants and affordable hotels. It's good to relax in this pretty village after a day of hiking.
