I come from Chamonix valley. This is an ideal base camp for an off-piste week or weekend in some of the mythical places of the Alps, as Les Grands Montets, above Argentière.
Les Grands Montets offer numerous descent possibilities, accessible through cablecar. We reach the valley by different routes (including the famous Pas de Chèvre). They mostly cross glaciers like the Rognons.
La Vallée Blanche is the most famous descent of the massif for the beauty of its landscapes and the amplitude of the itinerary. We can also go to the beautiful off-piste slopes in Brévent and Flégère. They tend to be less frequented than the Grands Montets when it has just snowed.
Courmayeur, in the Italian side of Mont Blanc, offers a good fallback in case of bad weather on the French side.
The Swiss Verbier station isn’t far either. It offers fantastic freeride options.
In short, all of these options allow us to easily fill a fun off-piste skiing week in Chamonix. We will discover the freedom of skiing in wild spaces leaving from the ski lifts. We will also enjoy the best snow away from the crowds.
Once in Chamonix, you can certainly include an off-piste day in your skiing holiday week. You can also plan a weekend or week fully dedicated to off-piste. It can either be in one resort, or exploring different areas.
It may also be interesting to take advantage of an off-piste ski week to do ski touring for one or two days.
Level: it is ideal to be comfortable in red pistes and in good physical shape. You don’t need to have off-piste experience.
We can leave together for a day, a weekend or a full week. We will ski in the best off-piste spots in and around Chamonix.
Off-piste ski is practiced on unmarked and unsecured terrain. Snow conditions vary at each outing. Each participant will have an AVD and a harness for glacier skiing. The risk of avalanche and moving in cracked routes justify the presence of a guide and require your full respect of some safety rules.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you are planning to come to Chamonix next winter. I can guide you in the discovery of new places, far from the crowds, with the best snow!
