Highlights

 
     

    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.

    And if you are looking for more adventures in the Chamonix area, I also offer this rock climbing and portaledge trip, as well as this ski tour.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I grew up far from the mountains, and I didn't imagine what was waiting for me...
    When I was 17, I had the first symptoms: I left without second guessing it my foreign tongues studies and I settled at Briançon, in the Hautes-Alpes, to satiate my passion for snowboarding. I practiced non-stop for some winters, spending the "summers" in the southern hemisphere.
    The virus started spreading: my love for large spaces led me to get certified as a mountain leader.
    During 10 years, I spent my summers taking groups to discover the most beautiful hikes around the Ecrins massif.
    During this time, I discovered alpinism and a there was a new spark in my eyes. The diagnostic came fast: I was severely passionate about the mountains. Since then I never stopped dreaming of every kind of ascent, and I organised my everyday life to try to achieve many of them.
    I learned to appreciate equally the end of the mountain journey and the friend or rope parter with whom I share my trips. After 10 years going through paths with hiking groups and with a fierce desire to go higher, I started studying to become a High Mountain Guide. I became IFMGA-certified in August, 2017.
    Today I propose to travel this path, leading us sometimes to a summit, to admire the vastness of the horizon, taking us to something simple, pure and essential.
    My head is filled with memories and projects, and I would be thrilled to share one with you. But I'm also here to help you turn your own project into a reality.
