A high-standing modern hotel with a lively atmosphere and excellent facilities, the Hotel Alpina faces one of the most exciting panoramas of the world: the Mont-Blanc massif and its glaciers. The hotel offers a restaurant on the 7th floor with panoramic views of the Mont-Blanc, a piano lounge bar with an open fireplace, a billiard room, fitness center and Jacuzzi, sauna and steambath.
Situated beneath the shadow of 15,767-foot Mont Blanc—Europe's highest peak—are three legendary ski destinations: Chamonix, France (home to five unique ski resorts); Courmayeur, Italy and Verbier, Switzerland. Some of the world's best expert skiing can be found among these jagged peaks and glaciers that rise 12,500 feet above the valley. All three resorts are perfect for advanced to expert challenge-seekers and all three are available on the Mont Blanc Unlimited Pass.
Basing this tour out of Chamonix ensures the quickest travel time from airport to hotel room. The ski resort is just 88 km (under 55 miles) from Geneva International Airport, which is serviced by 50+ airlines. Travelers can get to Chamonix in about an hour and half after landing via our pre-arrange–and included–ground transportation.
From Chamonix's famed Vallée Blanche, a 12-mile long glacier route, and Verbier's big-mountain lines to Courmayeur's expansive off-piste options, the terrain experiences can be summarized as adventurous. Expect plenty of steep pitches, varied terrain conditions, technical features, traverses and options to ski couloirs and chutes.
A proving ground for Alpinists, mountaineers and skiers from all over the world, Chamonix, or “Cham” as the locals and core skiers call it, has more of an authentic Alpine flair than resort glitz and glamour. Expect more international cuisine and culture in Chamonix than you might experience in other Alpine villages.

Winter in the French Alps is comparable to winter in the Western U.S. Temperatures range from 40°F to 31°F, so it's imperative to pack and dress appropriately. Layers are key so you don't overheat or get cold. If you tend to get cold easily, boot heaters, hand warmers and face protectors, like Buffs, are highly recommended. See our full packing list.
