Description

Chamonix is the place to be if you want to enjoy the best steep slopes for freeride or off-piste ski. Indeed, the area offers many possibilities, and we will explore several great spots. For example Grands Montets, Tour and Brevent.

Exciting couloirs, both short and long, of up to 40° are in our program!

This 5-day course is open to people who already have a good level of off-piste skiing.

During the week, we will see how to:
– Progress in steep slopes
– Assess and manage the risks associated with this practice
– Use the transceiver, shovel and probe
– Get someone out of a crevasse

Each morning, we meet in Chamonix at 8:45AM and leave for a new and exciting adventure.

Itinerary

Day 1: Brevent

This will be a day of off-piste skiing in Brevent. The area offers short slopes of up to 35°. It’s therefore ideal to learn how to turn in steep slopes without being afraid.

Day 2: Tour

Today we go to Tour, where the objective is the Posettes couloir, 800 vertical meters with 35°-40° passages.
Depending on the conditions, we may go to the corridor twice during the day.

Day 3: Grands Montets

A beautiful day of backcountry skiing in Grands Montets. This off-piste ski area is huge and it is known worldwide. The snow here remains very fresh, sheltered by the north face of the Verte. We can descend many short couloirs with 45° slopes.

Day 4: Grand Envers

A perfect time to discover the steepest itinerary in the famous Valée Blanche route: Grand Envers. With 2800 m of negative vertical drop, this descent offers two difficult passages at 40° as well as a fabulous journey in the midst of immense crevasses.

Day 5: From ENSA to Brevent - Grands Montets

For this last day in Chamonix, I propose to do two mayor couloirs: the couloir from ENSA to Brevent and the straight couloir in the Grands Montets. A total of 3500 m of negative vertical drop, averaging 40° in the couloirs. Not to mention the superb slopes at the foot of the Drus.
