In the French Alps, the most famous ski venue is Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, though skiing is by no means the only attraction. Chamonix is the oldest and biggest French winter-sports resort and site of the first Winter Olympics, held in 1924.
The world's highest cable car soars 12,000 feet up the Aiguille du Midi, for stupendous views of 15,700-foot Mont Blanc, Europe's loftiest peak. Throughout the year, visitors can partake in the music and folk festivals, conferences, a science fair, an alpine museum, wood sculptures, fishing and hunting (in season), an 18-hole golf course, 3 movie theaters, 5 discotheques, a casino, games of boules, bowling and bridge, and a library....france ski resorts
