Description

The Vallée Blanche in France is a gorgeous area for skiing of all kinds. However, on this trip I will guide you for a thrilling day of off-piste skiing.

Beginning in the beautiful town of Chamonix, we will make our way up the Aiguille du Midi ski lift. After that, we will have a variety of choices as to which off-piste route we can enjoy. Depending on your skiing ability, glacier and weather conditions, we will choose the best route for you. Some of the routes include the Classic route, the Petit route, the Moyen route, and the Grand Envers route.

After you enjoy your run at the end of the Mer de Glace, which rests at the bottom of the Vallée Blanche, we will take a short, 20 minute hike to the Montenvers cog train or to Les Mottets hut. From there we will ski back down to Chamonix.

The total time for this trip can be from 4 to 8 hours, depending on which route you choose. Midway through the day, we will stop for lunch at the Requin hut, or at the Montenvers hotel. Once there you will get to enjoy wonderful views of the Vallée Blanche.

In order to participate in this trip, you must be able to control your speed, side-slip, ski at a safe speed, and follow existing tracks. You must also have some prior off-piste skiing experience.

Vallée Blanche is a beautiful place filled with amazing glaciers, peaks and slopes, and on this trip you will get to ski off-piste on ungroomed terrain in the crisp, high altitude air of the French Alps.

Send me a message if that sounds like something you want to be a part of. I will be more than happy to guide you.

About the guide

Based in Chamonix, I am in love with the Alps because of everything they offer me: great off-piste skiing, perfect granite climbing, superb peaks and ridges in high altitude.

I love to work with people, share my experience with them and guide them with passion.
