A backcountry beast

By Nicole Harris

Chamonix may be known as death-sport capital of the world. Backcountry skiing and off piste snowboarding is as exhilarating as it is risky, but the journey up the mountain can certainly be made in safety and style when you hire a Mercedes Benz in Chamonix Mont-Blanc.

Start your drive up the mountain from Geneva Airport, the closest airport to Chamonix, on the limited edition G63 AMG 6x6 and find out how far you can push this luxury SUV. With the capability to cross water up to a meter deep and jump across and climb hills, don’t be fooled by the ruggedness of this beastly car. The G63 AMG perfectly combines the ruggedness of an off-roader with the finesse of a Mercedes Benz.

Off piste skiing is extremely popular and easily accessible in Chamonix. Every year, skiers and snowboarders come to the Chamonix Valley to enjoy its vast glacier systems, wide powder slopes, steep passages and tree skiing, backdropped by the spectacular Mont Blanc massif. When the thrill of the mountain calls, beyond your skis, boots and poles, some items can prove to be essential in transforming you from a man of civility into a safe and stylish backcountry creature. From utility straps that can be used to lash skis, fix skins or take the place of a missing upper cuff buckle, to a Gerber Crucial compact multi tool, a Tikka Plus headlamp or the Nano Striker fire maker, some tools can make the difference between conquering the mountain and having the mountain defeat you. Back in civilization, the comfort of the heated seats and wealth of hi-tech assistance systems on the Mercedes Benz GL SUV will welcome your tired feet.

Hire a Mercedes Benz in Chamonix and conquer the mountain in comfort, safety and style.
