The highest mountain in the Alps at 15,782 ft above sea level, Mont Blanc ia a popular destination for those seeking adventurous pursuits such as hiking, snowboarding and skiing. Around 20,000 mountaineers climb one of the several routes to the summit every year, with the first recorded ascent on 8 August 1786 by Jacques Balmat and Michel Paccard. By reaching the top, they claimed prize money offered by Horace Benedicy de Saussure in 1760.
Mont Blanc is close to both Courmayeur in Italy, and Chamonix in Haute-Savoie, in the Rhone-Alpes region of France, which are linked by the 11.6km Mont Blanc Tunnel, completed in 1965. Premiere Classe Hotels serve as a perfect base for anyone wanting to explore Chamonix, which is well-loved by winter-sports enthusiasts and was the location of the first Winter Olympics in 1924.
