Description

La Vallée Blanche, the can’t miss ski descent of your life, offers a great freeride skiing / off-piste skiing experience in the breathtaking panorama of the Mont Blanc Range, above Chamonix and Courmayeur.

La Vallée Blanche is one of my favourite ski descents, mainly because of its length and the beauty of the views surrounding it. We have the chance to admire Monte Rosa, Matterhorn, les Drus, les Grandes Jorasses, along with several other of the most iconic mountains of the Alps.

La Vallée Blanche can be skied down through different routes. We can leave either from l’Aiguille du Midi above Chamonix or from the Helbronner cablecar above Courmayeur. The possible routes include Le Petit Envers du Plan, Le Grand Envers du Plan, La Vallée Noire, Le Gros Rognon, etc.

It is a fantastic 22 kilometre long ski descent. In fact, it’s one of the longest in the world, lasting from 4 to 6 hours.

The best time to ski la Vallée Blanche is from January till May. The best time to do it will of course depend on the snow and weather conditions.

For the more experienced skiers, we can combine the Vallée Blanche with a descent of Val Veny or Glacier du Toula. I particularly like this last one because very few people go there. In addition, it’s quite wild and it goes through a forest where the snow can be very deep.

If you are around the Mont Blanc range during the coming winter and if you wish to live something very different, please send me a request and let’s plan this fantastic ski day together.
