In Chamonix, France, you can ride a fabled tram to the top of the Aiguille du Midi at 12,604 feet in elevation, where, upon exiting the ice tunnel, precipitous ski lines drop off the Mont Blanc massif and views of France, Italy, and Switzerland spread out before you. Chamonix is known as the birthplace of modern ski mountaineering, and now, it’s become an iconic gathering spot of a different kind, too.
Thanks to Chamonix-based ski company Black Crows, this picturesque French village is a growing epicenter of electronic music. In April, Black Crows will host its fourth annual Chamonix Unlimited Festival, a five-day celebration of electronic music and dance that draws thousands of fans to nine dazzling venues across the valley, with artists like Amelie Lens and Laurent Garnier turning the Aiguille du Midi into a summit party like no other and transforming the Plan Joran gondola station into a 2,500-person concert venue.
This season’s Unlimited Festival takes place from April 4-8, 2018. “The idea [for the festival] was really basic: having good fun with good friends at the end of the season,” says DJ and big-mountain skier Jose Lagarellos. “Then the party became bigger and bigger. It is what it is today: five days of music and skiing. It’s magic here in Chamonix.”
We at evo strive to bring people together through the sports we love. We want to share this amazing community gathering in one of skiing's iconic venues. That's why we've partnered with Black Crows Skis to give away a travel package for the Chamonix Unlimited music festival. Ski, enjoy the music, and connect with skiers from around the globe.
