    I love the Vallée Blanche, and I know after spending a day skiing off-piste there, you will love it, too.

    To start, we will meet at the cable car at the beautiful Aiguille du Midi (3,842m). From there, we will descend into some of the most beautiful glacial valley area you will ever see. Along the way, you will get to admire all the Mont Blanc Massif has to offer. From the famous Mont Blanc mountain (4,810m), and the Dent du Geant, to the Grandes Jorasses, you will get to see it all. Furthermore, you will also get to see the stunning Le Mer de Glace. There is just so much to see that it is difficult to put the skiing at the forefront.

    However, no matter how much the stunning scenery may try, it is simply too difficult to overshadow the amazing skiing in the Vallée Blanche. It is just too thrilling, and too much fun to not be the true highlight of this trip. The Vallée Blanche is also enormous. I cannot state that enough. It is so big, you can easily finding yourself skiing right into Italy if you are not paying attention! And with scenery this beautiful, and skiing this enjoyable, paying attention to details, like which country you are in, may be your biggest challenge.

    Contact me if this is the kind of day trip you are looking for in the Chamonix area. I promise a day of skiing off-piste in the Vallée Blanche will be a day you will be talking about for years to come.

    And if you are looking for a different kind of adventure, but you want to stay in the Chamonix region, I can also guide you on an ice climbing trip as well.

    About the Guide

     
     

    The Jura massif is an ideal place to learn and grow your experience in alpine techniques. I practice mountaineering, ski touring and ice climbing in the winter. I am also located very close to the Swiss and French alpine massifs.

    First, I started as a ski rescuer. My passion for skiing and climbing helped me discover the classic routes in the mythical summits of the Alps. The first mountain courses I went on with friends as a guide - which I did with a lot of effort, doubts and perseverance - were much needed to build my experience. Still, they also gave me a lot of joy, and I was able to pursue them while laughing and creating beautiful moments shared.

    My experience and terrain knowledge will allow you to move safely and enjoy your time, without a promise of the summit but of sharing a privileged and unique moment in the mountains.

    Finally, I'm a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide.

    I am really, really happy with both Explore-share.com’s service and their recommendation of guide Benjamin Souflot. Benjamin was extremely personable, and more importantly knowledgeable. Benjamin recommended where to rent ski gear and the proper gear for the day. He had crampons for my boots, ropes and other safety gear needed. I showed up at the meeting spot early, and Benjamin was already there waiting. On the gondola ride up to Aiguille du Midi, he talked safety and what to expect. When we got up to the top, it was very windy and intimidating. As Benjamin prepared the gear for our descent, he talked safety, strategy and was reassuring that it would be a fun, safe adventure. As I look down the face of the Ridgeline, I became nervous and anxious. Benjamin was very reassuring that it was going to be OK, that I was safe with him and we would make it down. Sure enough, Benjamin literally “talked me off the ledge” and we proceeded down. Benjamin was focused & guided me the entire time. Once we started skiing, Benjamin gave great instructions as to where to ski, what to expect ahead, etc. He was very knowledgeable about the mountain. When we took breaks, Benjamin shared with me interesting facts about where we were, in the mountains France, Italy, Mount Blanc, the crevasses, various peaks, history of the glacier, etc. I had a great experience! I would definitely do this trip again with Benjamin. I would also recommend this trip to anyone else with Benjamin and your company, Explore-share.com. Thank you again! -John
