Description

If you are after a spectacular adventure, join me on this wonderful 7-day freeride skiing trip around Mont Blanc. Our base will be the charming alpine village of Courmayeur, in northwest Italy.

Mont Blanc, with its large glaciers, high peaks and wild and spectacular scenery is considered one of the best freeride spots in the Alps.

I will take you through the best runs during this incredible week, from Vallon de Arp to Col de Tour. Our tour will start in the charming village of Courmayeur, at the Cresta Youla. From there, we can choose to go downwards through either the north or the east part. We will enjoy over 1500 vertical meters of amazing skiing.

We will also spend one day at the Funivia Monte Bianco cable car. And no matter if  we ski Glacier Malbret or Col du Tule, we will always ski over 2000 vertical meters downwards up to the floor of Val Ferret.

On our fourth day in the mountains, we will explore the northern part of the Mont Blanc, at the Chamonix valley. The Grand Montets, and its enormous glacier fields, offer the perfect setting for freeride skiing.

And, we will ski one day from the Aiguille du Midi for sure. The majority of skiers tend to take the gentle Valle Blanche route. However, we will guide you through a terrain full of glaciers: the Glacier Enverse.

If it rains, you can profit from it and explore the close-by area of La Thuile.

Please note this freeride skiing trip in the Alps is aimed at people with previous freeride skiing experience, especially in deep powder snow. You need to be able to ski in all type of snow conditions and in open terrain.

Also, we may climb on skins up to 1 hour per day, or maybe longer in rare cases, depending on the conditions. Besides, you need to wear a harness on glaciated terrain. Don’t worry if you don’t have one, we can provide you with this.

So come with me to this fantastic tour in the Alps. Send me a request, book your spot and let’s start planning this great trip together.

I also offer this 7 day freeride skiing trip in La Grave. Check it out!
