Buying your Chamonix lift passes or lift tickets in advance of your holiday completely makes sense. Firstly, you don’t have worry about queuing to buy them over the counter or figuring out how much cash you need for your holiday, but also you will have the passes delivered to you in time for your first day of skiing in Chamonix to where you are staying.
DELIVERY IS FREE IF YOU BOOK YOUR PASSES ONLINE
We also drop off ski maps and Chamonix local guides to ensure you have all the information you need to ski in Chamonix and the connected ski areas associated to the Chamonix lift pass type you wish to use. Remember you always need to bring your lift pass voucher with you if you have bought a Mont Blanc Unlimited pass to other ski areas outside the Chamonix valley. We give you the best prices we can get given the complicated schedule that the lift company publishes and changes.
We cannot though change the prices once you have purchased your Chamonix pass with us. We also have a lot of local knowledge about the ski areas and the associated safe places to ski although if you plan to ski off piste, do please book a high mountain guide to keep you as safe as can be.
We advise you book a guide for any off piste skiing and always have a
full avalanche pack (transceiver, shovel, probe & airbag) as well
as the appropriate training to reduce the risks typical of high mountain
off piste terrain.
This pass gives access to the ski areas of Courmayeur, Verbier (one half price day pass per week – conditions apply), Megève and St Gervais/Les Contamines. This lift pass gives you more than enough skiing and variety for any level of skier.
Even for the beginner skier it is a good idea to take the excursion to see the view from the L’Aiguille du Midi cable car on a sunny day and even a day trip to the other resorts. Chamonix Lift Passes do offer the different options though particularly if you are wishing to minimise the costs of your holiday!
Either way do give us a call to discuss your requirements, experience
and objectives for your holiday in Chamonix. As they say around here,
“have lift pass, will travel…”
