Non-Ski Activities

From sledging to helicopter flights… try something different in Chamonix or nearby in the Aosta valley, Italy!

While we believe that the skiing in Chamonix is not to be missed, there’s still loads to do if you’re not a skier, want to try something different or take a break from the slopes.

Everyone will love an evening in an igloo, or treat yourselves to a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter flight. Or for a change of pace, try snow shoeing, parapenting or an indulgent trip to the Italian thermal baths. Read on to get inspired and really make this trip a ski holiday with a difference.
