Chamonix will be rocking at the end of March when some of the best music acts on the continent descend on the resort for a weekend of great tunes and even greater skiing.

On March 30th and 31st, Chamonix plays host to the Winter Sessions Weekender, when acts including Norman Jay, Zero 7, Trojan Sound System, Mr Thing and Cheeba will be entertaining people on ski weekends in the resort.

The 2012 line-up brings together a combination of world class DJs and bands covering an variety of musical genres to suit every taste, including house, electro, drum & bass, hip hop, disco, dub step, ska, roots and reggae.

As RWD Mag states: "Winter Sessions heart and soul is rooted in creating good-time party vibes with storming line-ups echoing out across the Alps. Chamonix will be taken over at the end of March for two days of partying, winter sports and more partying."

This year, the traditional night-time sessions will be expanded this year to include daytime performances, with the Mountain Sessions event in the snow park at Les Grand Montets mountain celebrating winter sports and music in equal measure.

The daytime event will include Mountain Sessions ski and snowboard competitions, a huge stage, a state-of-the art sound system playing the latest tunes, and a bar and BBQ.

The fun and games will be capped off with a selection of hilarious games and attractions including an iPod battle, the best onesie king & queen, alpine cake bake-off and space turkey wrestling.

"Alongside the sounds pumping out all weekend, Winter Sessions pays homage to the beautiful setting they are blessed enough to access for the masses - the Mont-Blanc Massif mountain range," the magazine explained.

Two of the highlights of the weekend are sure to be the performances by the hip hop ensemble Lazy Habits and Hackney Globe Trotter, who garnered significant critical acclaim in 2011 and will be performing in Chamonix for the first time in 2012.
