Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Chamonix Season Pass (Unlimited) Question

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi,

Me and a friend will be doing a ski season next winter and staying in Chamonix, we will be purchasing an unlimited season pass which includes all areas in the valley and free access to Courmayeur. I've emailed the tourist office and found out that the last early bird unlimited season pass was 1,014 Euro. So I expect next season early bird to be a very similar price.

A couple of things I'm unclear about which I hope someone on here has experienced in...

Does the season pass include Verbier and to what extent (it's a little confusing on the websites i've found)

Is the chamonix leisure centre included in the season pass? On websites it states with 3-21 day unlimited passes but no mention of what's included in season pass.

Thanks for your time.

I'm also spending (most of) the season in Chamonix and my understanding is that it includes a 50% discount to 4 Valleys area to a limit of 6 days in total for the season limited to 1 use/week.

What @Gustavobs said Smile

It's great value for all the areas covered.

I'm planning to be there most of the season again too - see you there!

I was planning to do Chamonix this season but couldn't justify it based on the costs. Am getting 3 months in BC, for the price that 2 months in Chamonix would cost. Even with the flights, much cheaper accomodation and lift pass makes BC much more affordable. Combine that with much more snow in an average year in bc, the issues Chamonix has been having with their lifts, and the inbounds set up for when I don't want the hassle of carrying avy equipment/have a partner/avy risk is high etc. and it was an easy decision.

It's not really possible to compare directly, but theres an argument to be made that the likes of epic and ikon passes offer much better value for money than Chamonix.

This isn't a knock on the quality of skiing to be had in Chamonix. It's clearly one of the top ski destinations in the world, and I hope to spend some time there in the near future. However, I can't say for me personally it offers good value for money.

Like I said I wasn't trying to put down Chamonix. I'm sure it's awesome and there's obviously a reason people are willing to pay. Will probably bite the bullet and go the winter after next.

Thank you for replies so far.

Does anybody know about the sports centre there, if it's included in unlimited season pass?

You get 6 free days in Verbier with the ANNUAL pass only and you can only use 1 a week. With just the season pass you get the same days but at 50% off.

Richard Bozon sports centre is not included and this winter I paid 100 euros for a 4 month membership (I just paid 200 euros for an annual membership)

You do get a free go in the spa with an MBU pass though which is definitely worth a visit.

If you plan to do any more seasons the annual MBU becomes much cheaper as a repeat customer and if you buy as a couple (or are under 25).

Out of curiosity how much cheaper are we talking?

Also when does the season pass end?

 You know it makes sense.

I think I paid 1200 for my first annual pass and then 820 ish for my 2nd year. No idea when the season pass ends I'm afraid.
