Ready to ascend the highest summit in the Alps? Then join Jon, Spanish IFMGA mountain guide, on this great 6 day climb using your splitboard.

At 4810 meters in height Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in the European Union. Its snow-capped summit guarantees good snow during most of the year, especially in spring, when this 6 day tour takes place.
Touching the top roof of Mont Blanc is definitely one of the things that every skier or snowboarder has in the bucket list. This time I’ll help you make that dream come true on a fantastic splitboarding ascent, tackling the Mont Blanc summit from its French side. Remember that you’ll need to have a very good fitness level and some basic mountaineering skills.
On day 1 day we’ll drive to Chamonix, where we’ll have our first avalanche lessons. Then we’ll take a cable car up to Aiguille du Midi (3800 m) and snowboard down to Chamonix again as part of a training routine. It’s very important to have basic security notions before continuing our adventure.
On day 3 it’ll be time to cross to the Italian side of the mountain and climb up to the Vittorio Emanuele hut, located at 2732 meters of height. That will take us around 3 hours. The following day we’ll try out an easy climb to the summit of Gran Paradiso (4061 m). Once up there we’ll enjoy a fantastic long snowboard run down to the car, and drive back to Chamonix, for the second part (and most exciting) of the journey.
After a resting morning on day 5, we’ll take the ski lift again to the Aiguille du Midi middle station, cross the Bossons glacier with our splitboards and reach the Grands Mulets Hut.
On day 6 we’ll start the ascent early in the morning, snowboarding down to the Petit plateau (3600 m). Then, another climb to our last stop at Vivac de Vallot (4360 m) from where we must face the final ridge that leads us to the summit of Mont Blanc. A fantastic setting will be worth from up there, trust me. Now it’s time to snowboard down to the base.
This 6 day splitboarding program in Mont Blanc has a bit of everything. So, don’t wait any longer and send your request. It’ll be my pleasure to guide you there.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
