What’s New in Chamonix this Winter?
Winter is coming, and Chamonix is gearing up for a good one!
The team here at nidski are checking out what’s new in the valley this winter, and there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Chalet Hotel Le Castel
Already open, the 11 room Chalet Hotel Le Castel, is the latest venture from the team who run the Cap Horn (amazing sushi!), the Caleche and the Cabane. Offering fresh interiors, a far cry from the usual chalet chic, the hotel's location can't be beaten for golfers in the summer, and the Flegere base station in the winter season.
It's Ski Pass Time!
From October 1 – October 16, the Compagnie du Mont Blanc have their annual ‘early-early-bird’ sale on seasonal and annual ski passes. You can save over €1000 depending on which pass you are looking for. From October 16 – November 30, the ski pass prices increase slightly, and go up to full price on December 1st 2016.

Rocky Pop Hotel, Opening December 2016
The latest addition to the Chamonix hotel line-up, the Rocky Pop Hotel, is set to open in December 2016. Located in Les Houches, the Rocky Pop is the low-budget traveller’s answer to the luxury chalets and 5-star hotels that we are growing more used to in ski resorts. With amazing design details, great facilities and private rooms from just €60 a night, this 3-star hotel is a fantastic place for everyone from solo-travellers to families at an unbelievably reasonable price. Visit their website here for more details or to make a booking.
Soft Play For Kids
Fancy a day off skiing and not sure what to do with the kids? La Petite Folie soft play café in Chamonix Sud is a great to entertain the kids whilst you sit back and relax with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake. Located just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Chamonix’s main pedestrian street, La Petite Folie also offers organised activities for the kids and a delicious menu with healthy breakfasts, lunches and afternoon tea snacks for kids and adults alike. To keep up to date with their activity timetable and menu, follow them on Facebook here.

In 2017, QC Terme Centres (owners of the famous Pre St Didier Spa just beyond Courmayeur) are opening one of their luxurious spas in Chamonix. Nestled beside a lake, with views of Mont Blanc, the new QC Terme Centre will offer a relaxing experience surrounded by nature, just minutes from the centre of Chamonix.
