Skiing And Snowboarding in Chamonix | Frozen Mind


Snowboarding in Chamonix should be on the wish-list of any serious shredder. If you prefer skiing the same holds true. Chamonix, France is incredible. 

Chamonix, France is the birthplace of mountaineering in many ways. For hundreds, if not thousands, of years, the locals of Chamonix existed in the mountains. In the shadow of Mount Blanc, these simple farmers learned to survive in the rugged French Alps. Eventually, they climbed the slopes and braved the treacherous, crevasse-laden terrain. Perhaps fueled by a need for thrill, perhaps a need for survival. Regardless, so began the early stages of mountaineering and, later, alpine skiing and snowboarding.
