Description

Mont Blanc-Vallee Blanche is a high altitude off-piste route on a crevassed glacier. On this day long excursion I will take you on an unforgettable ski touring experience in the region.

The descent of Vallée Blanche starts from Punta Helbronner (3,462m) and traverses 24km through the heart of the Mont Blanc massif. It is a fantastic route that crosses glaciers, granite spiers, crevasses and seracs. We will get the chance to enjoy superb powder and fresh tracks. Furthermore, we will also catch unique views of Mont Blanc, Mont Blanc du Tacul, Les Drus and the Grandes Jorasses.

First, we will begin our tour by taking a 15-minute cableway ride in La Palud to  Rifugio Torino Vecchio. From there, a 10-minute walk will get us to Rifugio Torino Nuovo. Then, we will set off on our 4/5-hour ski tour from Col Flambeaux to Chamonix. Finally, after a traditional beer in this French town, we will head back to Courmayeur.

So, if you are ready for this amazing ski touring adventure in Mont Blanc-Vallée Blanche please contact me! I am sure that you will never forget the experience!
