Tunnel vision: the top-flight French resort, described by one longtime Chamonix chronicler as possessing ‘a unique atmosphere of relaxed authenticity’, represents the gold standard among premium winter sports venues. The coming of the railways was a transformative influence; trains were portrayed as an object of elegance, elevating the luxury quotient, and significantly expanded horizons for both travel and leisure. A mountaineering centre like Zermatt, Chamonix has attracted the world’s best climbers for decades. Climbing in the Alps, the domain of the hardy and initiated, demands nerve, balance and resilience.
