On ski days in Chamonix we have our pick of five mountains but each time our 6 year old begs us to take her to La Flégère (part of the linked Brévent-Flégère ski area). The lure being the totally brilliant Mont Blanc Legend kids zone. More and more ski resorts are now providing kid friendly pistes and Chamonix is no exception. It's hands down her favourite piste to ski. So if you're on a family ski holiday in Chamonix with kids, be sure to check it out.

With skiing still off the menu for my pegleg, my poles and I, we decided a change of scenery - mountains to city was in order. Italy is bang on our doorstep (15 minutes through the Mont Blanc tunnel) so last weekend we headed to Milan to grab some city culture. I'll be writing in more detail about the highlights of the city but for now let me take you on a photo tour of Milan.
Chamonix is chockablock with fabulous restaurants of every cuisine. Book a babysitter and head to one of these bad boy eateries when you're in town. Tried and tested, here are our top restaurant choices in Chamonix for when you are blissfully 'sans enfants'. Bon appétit!
