Nov. 24, 2010 - PRLog -- The prestigious Kandahar Men’s Alpine World Cup event in Chamonix Mont-Blanc is back in January 2011, attracting some of the World’s top skiers following a two year break.

With past winners including Bode Miller, Stefan Eberharter, Alberto Tomba, and Ingemar Stenmark, the downhill event, which is on the World Cup circuit, will be held on Saturday January 29 and the super combined (downhill and slalom) on Sunday January 30, 2011.

Free to watch, the event takes place on the Verte piste in Les Houches, with skiers including Benjamin Raich, Didier Cuche, and Daniel Albrecht set to take part in this 17th Kandahar event.

Hotel Les Lanchers, one of Chamonix’s most popular hotels, is now offering three night ‘Kandahar Breaks’ from just €240 per person, including bed & breakfast accommodation from 29 January 2011 and a two-day Mont-Blanc Unlimited ski pass, enabling visitors to watch the experts compete and get in some practice themselves.

Transfers can be arranged for 30 Euros per person from Geneva airport, which is one hour away.  Flights are not included.

Just two minutes walk from the Flégère cable car, Hotel Les Lanchers dates back nearly 100 years and has a reputation for fine food, comfortable accommodation and personal service.   Following a €1.3million refurbishment completed last month, Les Lanchers now offers 19 en-suite bedrooms, including five superior rooms with bathrooms, and a specially equipped disabled bedroom, with lift access to all rooms.  

Facilities at the hotel include a lounge bar, sauna, terrace, boot and drying room, and ski storage room, as well as the renowned Rendezvous Restaurant, which is popular with locals and guests.  With a reputation for fine food made with fresh local ingredients, Rendezvous serves traditional French, Savoyard and vegetarian dishes daily.
