|Why have a wet weekend in the
Lakes? With cheap flights to Geneva and efficient airport
transfers, Chamonix is easy for a weekend. You can leave
work on Friday eveing and still be in Chamonix before
The extensive Chamonix Valley cablecar system allows you
to get into the mountains fast so you can spend your short
visit skiing or climbing rather than walking or skinning.
You'll also be able to get a day in the mountains on your
last day then be in Geneva for an eveing flight home.
Here are some great weekend routes:
Off-piste skiing from the Aiguille du Midi or the
Day tours such as the Col du Passon.
Heliskiing for the go-getters.
| Ice climbing
on the cascades or in the mountains.
Multi-pitch granite fun.
Big classics like the Frendo Spur.
It's all within easy reach and much more fun than watching
