I'm going to Chamonix, France, in February with a group of friends. They will be skiing/snowboarding most days, but I will not.
Are there any suggestions on what else there is to do in or around Chamonix?
I don't have a car, but I would be happy to catch public transport for a day trip or to somewhere nearby.
There is a gondola at the center of the village going to the peak of Aiguille du Midi... this is a must do. Absolutely breath taking view from up there. You go down in the gondola, so no skiing! Search for 'aiguille du midi' on the internet, that will give you an idea of what to expect.
