Description

Famous with skiers the world over, the Vallee Blanche is as beautiful and fun as it is popular. And during this full-day ski touring adventure, I would like to guide you on skiing adventure in the valley that you will never forget.

Our trip will begin in Courmayeur. There, we will meet at the Skyway ticket office. After that, we will make our way to the top of the Punta Helbronner on a cable car. During the cable car ride, you will be able to admire the gorgeous Vallee Blanche area. You will get to marvel at the area’s collection of peaks, glaciers and sensational landscape. After the cable car ride, we will then start skiing. You will have several kilometers of great descents to choose from and enjoy during this trip. At the end of the trip, we will make our way to Chamonix in France. In the case there is insufficient snow, or tiredness after a long day of skiing, we can take the Montenvers train to Chamonix. From Chamonix, you can take a taxi to Courmayeur.

In order to participate on this trip, you should have prior ski touring experience. It is also important that you are in good physical condition as well.

Ski touring in the Vallee Blanche is a fantastic opportunity for anybody who loves great skiing in a gorgeous natural area. To join me on this trip, please send a request. I know you’ll have a great time.

I can also take you on this ski touring trip in Courmayeur that can last for one or several days.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
