The most famous off-piste in the world, that every skier should do. Ascent with the highest cable car in Europe to over 3800 m high Aiguille du Midi. After climbing breathtaking ridge we will put skis on and say: let’s go!

Vallée Blanche is the right ski run for intermediate skiers and snowboarders. Experienced skier who masters red runs will enjoy skiing there. For group of expert skiers, who wants to experience more difficult run, guide can lead over steep slopes away from usual runs and difficulty reach black runs. Breathtaking scenery with 4000m high peaks around you, Mont Blanc, Mont Blanc du Tacul, Dent du Geant, and amazing north wall of Dru will show the way down to Chamonix, almost 2800m lover. Most time in winter it is possible to ski all the way to the valley, if not we decent with Montenveres train back to Chamonix.

Despite skiing Vallee Blanche is not difficult, you will spend all day on glaciers and on altitude over 3000m, so you will be exposed to objective dangers, and it is very important to follow your guides’ instructions.

Our guide will take care for you safety in this high mountain itinerary and you will get most joyful day, full of skiing, training with avalanche kit, lunch at Requin hut and fantastic experience.

We usually do one run that takes 3-6 hours. If the group is very experience and will show interest to ski more than one run your guide will speed up a bit and in couple of hours you will be on your way to Aguile du Midi again!

Vallee Blanche is ski run where also snowboarders are welcome; we recommend them to have telescopic poles for the last – pretty narrow part of Mer de Glace.

If you are planning skiing vacations in Chamonix we recommend you to do this run after a couple of days of skiing, when you legs and skis will warm up a bit and you will be able to enjoy descent as much as possible.
