Indoor Sport Centers
Chamonix and its surrounding areas are brimming with indoor sport centres, so if you still want a good workout there’ll be no stopping you!
Just a short 10 min taxi ride away, in Les Houches, you’ll find one of France’s largest indoor climbing walls, with enough climbing surfaces and routes to keep everyone entertained for hours. Opening times are extended on rainy days, and there are plenty of kids’ courses available; so keep the little ones entertained while you tackle those grade 9 overhangs! You can hire all the equipment you’ll need, and the Mont Blanc Escalade also offers a refreshment area and showering facilities.
The Centre Sportif Bozon is Chamonix Centre’s ice wonderland and home to a fantastic ice rink. Catch a local hockey game if it’s on, or simply hire some skates and swirl your hours away. The rink opens daily from 2pm and offers a late-night skate on Wednesdays. The city’s bowling alley is also a great way to use up some pent-up energy on rainy days in Chamonix.
Now here’s a great way to make use of a rainy day! Head to one of Chamonix Centre’s fabulous health spas and indulge in a few hours of total body relaxation; particularly blissful if you’ve just spent a few days on the slopes or hiking around. There are over half a dozen fantastic health spas in Chamonix; most are affiliated with 5* resorts, but open to the public. The Deep Nature Spa, is a haven of steam rooms, swimming pools and offers innumerable massages, facials and relaxing full-body treatments.
A rainy day in Chamonix is also a great excuse to indulge in the other attractions in town…eating and shopping! The local cuisine is an absolute highlight of Chamonix; as is the epitome shopping experience, yet most tourists are simply too busy running from peak to peak to ever really enjoy either one leisurely. Apart from the obligatory sportswear joints, Chamonix Centre is also home to some pretty nifty craft shops, gift shops and salivatingly delicious home-made chocolate shops too. Take advantage of the lunch-time siesta and settle into one Chamonix Centre’s brilliant eateries for a long lunch or, better still, fill up the pantry of your self-catering holiday rental apartment from one of the many gourmet food stores in town, and spend your hours preparing a delicious French inspired meal at home.
