Lodge in Chamonix


What to expect from a ski a mountain lodge in Chamonix

Originally, a mountain lodge was a log cabin, built for fish or hunting trips, in which people used to settle for the holidays. Comfort was not really an option, unless you considered ice-cold baths in the glacier torrents a relaxing moment.

Although you could probably still find an exact match of this definition among the several hunting shelters hidden in the forest of the Chamonix mountains, the concept evolved and nowadays refers to a very specific type of hotel in the mountains. Today, remote lodges sometimes even offer rental equipment and guide services.
