In 2016 and 2017 CHX have partnered with a number of charities who want to come to the French, Swiss and Italian Alps to challenge themselves on two feet, and raise as money as is humanly possible to support their causes.

In order to help charities maximise revenue CHX aims to make them the very best charity fundraising events on the planet!  We do this by investing and ensuring that the all-inclusive experience is first-class, whether it be in terms of escapism in the mountain refuges, or staying in the best accommodation in the valley. The real value however comes from the intangible, what we simply describe as "the magic of the mountains", and it is this that makes people forge unique friendships and to want to keep coming back! 

Upcoming events



May 29th to June 4th - Gran Paradiso - A six night trip in total luxury, culminating in the ascent of the highest peak within Italian borders - the stunningly beautiful Gran Paradiso which stands at 4,061m (13,300 ft).  This is a brilliant opportunity for someone who wants to try mountaineering, without the need for technical experience. This is also a fundraising event for Streets of London, our homeless charity partner. Please contact alison@chamonixhardcross.com for more information on this event.
