Type of Trip
In the heart of the Mont Blanc massif, the Vallée Blanche is an exceptional option for an off-piste ski descent. Join us for an exciting ski day this winter or spring!
Over 20 kilometers long, this descent starts at the summit of Aiguille du Midi (3842m) and ends in Chamonix-Mont Blanc (1050m) or at the Montenvers train, depending on the snow conditions.
If you are not a very experienced off-piste skier, a certified mountain guide is essential for this adventure! We will be on high mountain and glacial terrain.
We will choose the best itinerary depending on the number of participants and their level, as there are many possibilities. Some options are the Classic route, the Petit Envers or the Grand Envers.
The Classic route of the Vallée Blanche takes about 4-6 hours. This descent is long and, although it is not difficult, you need to be able to control speed and trajectory. If we had to compare it to a run, it could probably be a Red. But keep in mind that here we are off-piste, without organized safety measures.
At the end of the descent, we need to ascend by foot for about 20 minutes to reach the Mottets chalet and then Chamonix, or the Montenvers train.
Please send us a request if you are interested in this off-piste descent, one of our favourites in the Alps. We would love to guide you!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
- Not included in the price : the lift, lunch and transfer back to the starting point (depending on the itinerary we choose).
- Equipment: normal ski equipment with fat skis if possible, normal ski clothes, backpack with ARVA, shovel and probe.
- I can help you renting the equipment (please inform me prior to arriving as to what you will need).
