1 Day

Jan, Feb, Dec




Home to the most famous off-piste skiing descent in the world, there is nothing quite like the Vallee Blanche.

Situated within the Mont Blanc massif, this valley is both gorgeous and perfect for off-piste skiing. The valley is nearly 20 kilometres long, and the descent is a thrilling, nearly 2800 vertical metre drop. Starting at the amazing Aiguille du midi (3,842), we will make our way all the way down to Chamonix.

The descent itself it not only thrilling, but is also an incredible journey down the white valley. You will be constantly surrounded by snow covered wilderness and some of the Alps‘ most impressive peaks. They include Mont Blanc (4,808m), Mont Maudit (4,465m), and an assortment of others. Also, as you make your way down the valley, you will get to see several incredible glaciers. The most famous glacier being the Mer de Glace. This amazing glacier stretches over 7 kilometres long and is 200 metres deep, and it will be in full view as you make your descent down the Vallee Blanche.

Skiing down the Vallee Blanche is an unforgettable experience. Even if it were just an off-piste skiing route with nothing around it, you would love it. However, when you add the stunning landscape of the Alps, from its wilderness to its peaks and glaciers, it transforms the Vallee Blanche into something truly special. And on this trip, I want to guide you from the top to bottom, so you can enjoy every second and every metre of it.

Mountain Guide

I am a native of Chamonix, France. It is there I developed a motivation to discover the various winter sports within the valley. After participating in snowboarding competitions, I enrolled in a mountain guide course, which I completed in 2013. On top of my passion for guiding, I am also passionate about audiovisual art, which I try to incorporate in the framework of my profession.

What people are saying about this trip



The one day we had with Nicolas was excellent max. We toured the Vallee Blanche and it was an outstanding tour and he was an amazing guide!  Thanks again Nico!



I initially was not planning to submit this review but after much thought, we (the four of us who participated in this activity) feel it is important for others to know the experience that we had. In addition, Nicolas was the organizer but not the guide that took us on our skiing descent so I would like to make sure that is reflected in the review. Jean, the guide that accompanied us, lacked diplomacy, did not treat us with respect and did not respond to a difficult situation as you would hope that a guide would. In this business, I imagine tricky situations occur with some frequency. In our experience when dealing with an undesirable situation with our guide, Jean, we were cursed at repeatedly, and treated in a way that compounded the situation, making it worse. This happened in front our two teen children and the only redeeming part of the experience was providing an example of how NOT to act in a difficult situation. Our recommendation is that you provide training in how to deal with situations that are challenging with diplomacy as they happen continually in life and on the mountain.
