Description

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!

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
