Skiing in the Alps

When I was a kid I used to ski a lot. Of course, since I was born in Sweden, the land the World's Largest Cross-Country Skirace, called "the Vasaloppet". When you're born in Sweden you have to know how to ski cross-country. It's an essential part of the culture and, at least when I was a kid, a way of life.

One of the most popular winter sports resorts in Europe is Chamonix in eastern France. It's situated at the foot of Mount Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps and Western Europe, situated on the border between France and Italy.

Chamonix is famous for its spectacular cable car. People from all over Europe go there to do advanced skiing and snowboarding. There are several ski area and some of them offer off pists. Chamonix also has a lot to offer in summer. It's a mecca for alpine mountaineers and hardcore mountain bikers.

FSI Property are specialists in ski chalets and apartments across the world. They offer a great deal for those interested in owning a Chamonix property. Like the traditional chalets of the Alps. They are so cute! If you've ever watched "Heidi" you know what I'm talking about. I would love to have one of those and be able to go to Chamonix whenever I felt like it.
