Julien DIOT : The man behind Ambition Outdoor
Julien was born in Vichy. From sleeping in a tent in his garden at age 6, to testing sports equipment for high-end brands in the mountains all over the world; he has done everything he can to succeed in the outdoor sport industry.
A life devoted to outdoor sports
Once he got his STAPS (Science and Technique of Physical and Sports Activities) Bachelor Degree and his Sport Engineering Master Degree, Julien decided it was time to go for a worldwide adventure during which he shared his World Tour Outdoor Experiences on his blog. Back in France after 3 years travelling on his own, Julien registered the brand name Ambition Outdoor at the INPI convinced he would start his own company one day. In 2015 he fell in love with Chamonix Mont-Blanc. This town at the bottom of Mont-Blanc offers some of the nicest tours in the world, no matter what your outdoor sport activity. This is what Julien needed to start his micro-entrepreneurship.

Les Granges d’En Haut *****
If your tour takes you to Les Houches, it would be a shame not taking advantage of the services provided by the luxurious Granges d’En Haut ***** and their Deep Nature Spa open from 10:00 am to 08:00 pm. Its location slightly remote from the center not far away from the Prarion gondola lift is a privilege to be directly in contact with nature. The view from the patio where are the swedish hot tub and sauna will offer a show you will never forget.
The Refuge des Aiglons ****
Located in Chamonix Sud, le Refuge des Aiglons **** receives you everyday from 10:00 am to 08:00 pm. Besides it is a 4 stars Hotel, you can also come here for lunch or diner.

The Beer O’Clock
The Beer O’Clock opened in July 2017 and is a great success. This bar concept is simple: You transfer an amount on a free card that will allow you to serve yourself to one of the beer tap. The advantage is double: You no longer wait to be served and you can try small quantities. One more thing: the Beer O’Clock serves vegetarian side dish. This place is perfect to gather and chat.
The Jekyll and Hyde
The Jekyll and Hyde is a Bar Restaurant in Chamonix Sud, in front of the Bus station on the Pelerins road. Quite popular for its tapas, the Jekyll offers a more relax and welcoming atmosphere than the city center. Many locals come here to meet.
The Micro Brasserie of Chamonix is located at the end of the town when you go towards the end of the valley. This bar is really popular for English speaking people. Come taste one of the craft beer brew on spot! With a nachos side dish,the white ale “Blanche des Guides” remains my favourite. You can also have an insane burger if you are starving.
