Who wouldn't enjoy a day of off-piste skiing in the absolutely breathtaking settings of Vallée Blanche above Chamonix?
An iconic descent, this is one of the must do off-piste ski runs in the world. Technically moderate, but nonetheless serious, it meanders among crevasses and hanging seracs, along slopes and valleys under imposing granite peaks.
The day starts, in the morning, at 1000m in downtown Chamonix. A 20 minutes' cable car ride will get us to the top of the majestic Aiguille du Midi (3,842m) mountain. Afterwards, we will go off the beaten path, down an impressive snow arête, immersing ourselves in the mind blowing alpine scenery of the Mont Blanc Massif. At the end of the ridge, we'll start skiing down Vallée Blanche, an enormous snow covered glacier (23km long, with a 2000m elevation drop), with lots of variations for all levels and abilities.
Half way down our route lies the Requin Hut (2516m) where we can stop for a lunch break, enjoy the sunshine and admire the impressive seracs of Glacier du Géant.
To exit the Vallée Blanche we can either take the Montenvers train or, if the conditions allow, ski all the way down to Chamonix. Either option will require a 20-30min walk with skis on the pack.
So come and join me for an amazing off-piste skiing adventure on the Vallée Blanche in Chamonix. You will get the chance to ski wide open spaces, in a breathtaking Alpine setting, on an ancient glacier resting beneath the snow for thousands of years.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

A fresh mountain guide living and working out of Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, I am curious individual with an incurable passion for vertical movement in the mountains, which I have done obsessively since 2005.
In the meantime, while learning the mountain guide's trade, I discovered the pleasure of sharing this passion with others.
Looking forward to seeing you in the mountains
