ACTIVITIES

Off-piste skiing

Famous Vallee Blanche and powder offpist ski days with experienced mountain guides.

 

VALLEE BLANCHE

 

Vallee Blanche, the most beautiful and famous off-piste route in the Alps. For those who like to ski off-piste close to amazingly beautiful crevasses and seracs,
surrounded by a breathtaking landscape in front of the summit of Mont Blanc!

One of the most famous and most amazing Xperience in Chamonix is the off-piste route Valley Blanche.  All the way from top of Aiguille du Midi, 3842m, to Chamonix valley, 1032m, on a glacier and you get to Xperience the breathtaking view. Several variants and routes to choose from: like the normal Valley Blanche, the Petit Envers du Plan or the Grand Envers du Plan.

This glacial route is very popular, but the presence of a mountain guide is very strongly recommended. Be sure to pay attention to snow conditions and to the weather forecast. Avalanche search device, probe and shovel are necessary.

Meeting at 8:30 in Chamonix and we take the Aiguille du Midi cable car.

We climb down the east ridge equipped to put the skis and then start downski leaving on the right the beautiful red south face of the Aiguille du Midi in the direction of the Giant Glacier.

Passing the spectacular crevasses we reach the Requin refuge for a break. Resumed the descent we head towards the junction of the Vallee Blanche glacier and Lechaux to Mer de Glace.

After a descent developed over 12 km, we arrive at the departure of Montenvers funicular that will take us back to Chamonix.
