Highlights

 
     

    The Tour des Periades (Periades Route) is one of the most beautiful alpine routes within the Mont Blanc massif (4,808m), located in the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc region, on the border between France and Italy.

    The trail is also a perfect destination for off-piste ski touring and snowboarding enthusiasts. It features great snow conditions and backcountry terrain, plus panoramic views to red-orange sharp rugged peaks, glacier fields, and vast snow-covered mountains. Along the way, it offers stunning views to the north face of the Grand Jorasses (4,208m), a group of granite peaks on the northern part of the Mont Blanc massif.

    Our trip will begin and end in the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (France) or the Courmayeur (Italy) ski areas, at the base of Mont Blanc (4,808m), the highest peak in the Alps and in the whole western Europe. We will start by checking the group’s technical equipment and then taking the Giant Glacier cable car uphill.

    We will first splitboard down a part of the Vallée Blanche, one of the most scenic slopes in the Alps, and then skin to the summit of the Périades Glacier. We will traverse along the steep, glacial Brèche Puiseux passage using crampons and ice axes, and then splitboard across the magnificent Mont Mallet glacier. Finally, we will begin our descent down the Vallée Blanche, back to Chamonix or Courmayeur.

    Don’t miss this fabulous splitboarding experience in the heart of the Alps! Book your trip now.

    I also offer a ski touring version of this program. If you are looking other adventures in the area, I recommend the 1-day heliskiing tour in the Aosta Valley and the 2-day mountaineering trip in Grandes Jorasses by the normal route.

    What People are Saying about Peaks Hunter Mountain Guide Team

     

    I want to post my review on Peaks Hunter Mountain Guides ( see below).I climbed Mont Blanc in September 2019 with Peak Hunter Mountain Guides. The service I received was excellent. They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

    We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we\'ve experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you.
