The Courmayeur-Mont-Blanc area has a very popular freeride route, the Valleé Blanche, which crosses the amazing Mer de Glace. This outing is your chance to ski here under expert guidance, join me for an exciting winter adventure!

The Mer de Glace is a huge glacier on the northern slopes of the Mont Blanc massif, just north of the Aiguille du Tacul. It is around 7.5 km long and 200 metres deep, the largest glacier in France. This awesome spot is part of the Valleé Blanche, which we can access using the Courmayeur skyway cable car

After taking some photos from the panoramic terrace at the top of the cable car, we will begin the descent along the 24 km of the Mer de Glace. We will enjoy between 4 to 5 hours of freeride skiing amongst granite pillars and crevasses, surrounded by breathtaking landscape. At the end of the descent, after a beer in Chamonix, we will return by bus to Courmayeur (30min.).

Please note that this trip is suitable for good off piste skiers with at least a medium fitness level.

So, if you want to live an unforgettable freeride skiing experience in the French Alps, please contact me. Let me take you to the awesome powder of Mer de Glace!

We had a fabulous time with Nicolas. We skied amazing terrain and he found the best untouched snow for us! I am so happy we did this because he showed us parts of the mountain that we would have never known about on our own. He was so fun, personable, knowledge and professional. 5 Stars for sure!

Nicolas was a skilled and knowledgeable guide. We were disappointed that there were not told beforehand that we had to pay for the transport up and down the mountain. We were given the impression these coats were included in the trip. Be prepared to pay 150 Euros more than the quoted price for the tram and train tickets.
