What's On in Chamonix February 2017

February might be the shortest month, but it manages to pack a lot into those 28 days! Here’s what’s happening in Chamonix over the next four weeks.

Singers & Songwriters Night - 1st February

There’s more to Chamonix than ski bums and seasonaires; there’s also plenty of extremely talented musos hanging out amongst us. Come along to the monthly Singers & Songwriters night to discover original music, written and performed by whoever is brave enough to take to the stage. The venue varies each month and this time it is La Maison des Artistes that has the honour; an historic old house that has been converted into a very hip jazz club. This is always a great nice with a really friendly vibe; come along and check it out. Singers & Songwriters Night

Chamonix Ladies Ice Hockey Match - 4th February

The Chamonix Rebelles will be giving it all they’ve got in their upcoming match against Swiss team Chaux-de-Fonds. Free entry, tiered seating and a bar serving drinks and snacks make this a great night out with plenty of action. Kick-off (or whatever it’s called in ice hockey) is at 8pm.

Paret Sledging - 10th, 17th, 24th February
