Description

The descent of the Vallée Blanche is a mythical route of the Mont Blanc massif. This ski touring trip is your opportunity to explore it under expert guidance. Join me!

A 30-minute cable car will take us to the summit of Aiguille du Midi (3842m). After crossing the famous ridge and putting on our skis, we will still have a long walk surrounded by stunning landscapes. Then we will be ready for a magical off-piste itinerary!

Depending on the snow conditions, your technical level and your wishes, we offer several possible routes:

  • The Classic White Valley is the longest route but also the most affordable one. It has steep slopes and crevasses that can be challenging.
  • The True White Valley is a historic route that crosses ice formations, crevasses and small seracs, before joining the Classic White Valley.
  • The Petit and Grand Envers are routes located on the left bank of the Aiguille du Midi glacier. Steep slopes, crevasses, seracs, and jumps are on the menu!

These different routes may be similar to a red track when conditions are optimal. However, the technical difficulty may increase depending on the conditions of the moment. Sometimes we may have to deal with difficult snow, ice, crust, or bumps. So a very good ski level is needed. Furthermore, the altitude requires a good fitness level!

We can descend down to Chamonix or end at Montenvers station, where we will take the train. It all depends on the snow conditions.

So, if you want to experience one of the most exciting and breathtaking skiing descents in the world, please contact me. Let’s spend an unforgettable ski touring trip in the Vallée Blanche!
