TYPES OF CHAMONIX LIFT PASS - CHAMONIX SKI AREAS
There are two main types of 'Chamonix Ski Area' passes: the Mont-Blanc Unlimited (MBU), which gives you access to the widest range of ski areas possible in the area that being all the lifts and ski areas of the Chamonix valley as well as some neighbouring resorts and highest lifts. The MBU pass gives you unlimited descents from Chamonix's highest lifts namely the world famous L'Aiguille du Midi Cable Car (with peerless views to Mont Blanc and the alps in every direction and the top cable car at Les Grand Montets which gives you access to the terrain of the Argentiere glacier. Please be safe though and always hire a mountain guide when you intend to ski off piste and/or on any of the glaciers.
The local pass is called the Chamonix Le Pass (CLP) and is restricted from the highest lifts and Les Houches. It is well suited to beginners/intermediates and short breaks.
The most popular ski passes are the 6 day Mont Blanc Unlimited ones, which are suitable for most visitors to Chamonix. Please check the area validity before booking your passes to confirm which Chamonix Lift Passes are suitable for everyone in your party. In short the MBU covers all the ski areas of the Chamonix valley with some additional skiing possibilities in Megeve (Evasion Mont Blanc), Courmayeur and Verbier (subject to change). The CLP does not include Les Houches and the extra destinations or L'Aiguille du Midi and there are various other options to consider.
