Here's a quick overview of what else you might need during your ski holiday besides Accommodation and a general idea on how much it costs.

Prices will vary according to the provider and the service included. This is for a general idea only.

Ski Lifts Prices

A 6 day adult Chamonix Le Pass costs €230.

A 6 day adult Mont Blanc Unlimited pass costs €280.

The basic difference between the two passes is that the Mont Blanc Unlimited Pass allows you to go up the Aiguille du Midi and the top of the Grands Montets as well as over into Italy.
