Let’s discover together the thrill of La Vallée Blanche in Chamonix on an exciting off-piste skiing adventure. This tour is a haven for backcountry skiing enthusiasts. Join me for an invigorating experience that offers breathtaking views on the Mt Blanc range and exhilarating ski descents.

During winter, Chamonix's popular spots can get quite crowded. Opting for off-piste skiing allows you to escape the masses and enjoy the pristine surroundings of Vallée Blanche. Notably, the descent here boasts an impressive vertical drop of 2,800 meters, making it one of the most exciting skiing descents worldwide. You'll have 2-3 hours to soak in the remarkable sights of glaciers and high altitude peaks.

The ski journey kicks off at the picturesque Aiguille du Midi lift (3842 m) and concludes in Chamonix. The added convenience of the Aiguille du Midi cable car makes accessing this backcountry skiing adventure all the more hassle-free.

This trip is best suited for individuals with prior off-piste skiing experience (you need to be comfortable skiing down black slopes on any kind of snow) and a reasonable level of fitness to handle up to 3,000 vertical meters in a day.

Get ready for an unforgettable ski tour that promises a unique winter experience. Book your Vallée Blanche with me now and gear up for an exceptional tour of skiing. You’ll find all the details of this tour in the FAQ section.

What happens if the conditions are not good to ski down La Vallée Blanche?

In case of bad weather or bad conditions, I'll propose an alternative off-piste skiing program in the Chamonix Valley.

I recommend you to go to Concept Pro Shop located in Chamonix (610 Route Blanche). They have all what you'll need and you'll get a 10% discount.

What ski equipment & safety gear will I need to have with me?

To ski down La Vallée Blanche, you'll need SAFETY GEAR (avalanche transceiver, shovel, and probe) and the necessary MOUNTAINEERING EQUIPMENT (harness, crampons, ice axe, and a backpack that can carry your skis/snowboard). If you need to rent any of the above you can do so at Concept Pro Shop located in Chamonix (610 Route Blanche). Don't forget to bring some food, water, your sunglasses or goggles, and sun protection.

Do I need to buy a lift pass?

You need to buy your "Mont Blanc Unlimited" lift pass, either online or directly at the desk of Aiguille du Midi cable car in Chamonix. If you buy it online, you'll send me the ticket number so I can do the booking in advance, otherwise, we will do it on the spot when we meet.

What is included in the price I'm paying here?

The price includes my guiding fee. On top of this, you'll need to buy your lift pass ("Mont Blanc Unlimited") and the ski/mountaineering and safety equipment you might not have. You can rent these at Concept Pro Shop located in Chamonix (610 Route Blanche).

How experience do I need to be to ski down La Vallée Blanche?

You need to be comfortable skiing down black slopes on any kind of snow.

I'm alone, is it possible to join a group?

I am not running any open groups. You'll go on a private tour with me which maximize the chances to have a great and safe experience.

I'm a snowboarder, can I do the Vallée Blanche?

We need to safely navigate across all kinds of terrain. The challenge is not to lose altitude or fall. While we ride on a glacier, we cannot take off the snowboard. Also, as the final part of the descent is long and flat, we need telescopic poles and crampons. These ones have to fit our snowboard.

About the guide

Mountain Guide

I am an IFMGA mountain guide living in Cyprus. I have a passion for exploring the mountains since I was child. Kyperounda, the town where I was born and raised, was my first playground, the place where I started practising different outdoor activities.

First I learnt skiing. Then, I started training and taking part in races and competitions, traveling extensively in Europe. As I am very curious, I kept trying all kinds of sports until I discovered climbing and all its exciting possibilities.

I also developed both my academic and my practical skills in the university, where I studied Outdoor Studies and Sport Science. During that time, I obtained qualifications as a Mountain Leader and a Climber.

Teaching other people is one of the things I like the most. I find a deep joy in helping others to enjoy the mountains as much as I do.

The experience of all these years as well as my technical skills, have taken me closer to my goal: becoming an IFMGA mountain guide.

What people are saying about this trip



Our giude Kyriakos Rossidis was excellent.



We very much appreciated Kyros’ professionalism and knowledge of the area. We’re fairly adept skiers but were not all that familiar with the mountaineering gear or protocol - Kyros was very thorough with his directions and making sure we were all safe. I had a 12 and 13 year old with me and he gave me a lot of confidence with his skills without being patronizing. ( Plus...he found us the goods!) We all had a great day. Happy to recommend him for or offer other intel.



Kyriakos was awesome! Very knowledgeable but didn’t push or feel like a lesson. If we asked a question he’d answer but we never felt like he was trying to teach. I was extremely happy with how we saw every other “group” going down more or less the same route and he brought us over to a spot that was untouched.



My Son and I we're absolutely delighted with our day out skiing the Vallee Blanche. Our guide Kyriakos was friendly, helpful and extremely professional. We really felt that we were being looked after by one of the best. Kyriakos also shared his knowledge of the route, the mountains and he even gave us some tips to improve our skiing. An absolutely fantastic experience that we will never forget.



We were expecting to be taken somewhere that we could not have gone ourselves. One of the members of our group was a very experienced skier and we did not need to pay to have a guide take us to ski somewhere we could have skied on our own without paying.
