Description

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.
