the vallée blanche
The holy grail of glacial off piste itineraries and arguably the most famous in the world.
Come and experience all 22km of the breathtaking Vallee Blanche, accessed via the Aiguille du Midi 3842m cable car and under the supervision of one of our fully qualified and experienced high mountain guides.
A guaranteed day to remember, so don't forget your camera!
PER PROFESSIONAL AND PER DAY
ATTENTION! The Vallee Blanche is a completly un-patrolled, and un-marked off piste itinerary starting at very high altitude 3842m - We therefore recommend that you save this experience for either the middle or the end of your ski holiday, so that you will have had some time prior to the experience to warm up your legs and perfect your off piste technique. If you have any doubts as to whether you have the required ski/snowboard ability to undertake the challenge, we would prefer that you take at least a half day ski instruction beforehand, so that you can be assessed by one of our qualified professionals.
Up to 5 people per guide - depending on conditions.
Good ski or snowboard skills required.
Children are welcome from 12 years old with the required level.
Good physical condition required - when leaving the Mer de Glace, allow about 30 minutes walking with skis on your back - depending on the itinerary you will have to climb more than 500 steps to reach the Montenvers station (opening of the new lift to avoid the steps scheduled for the winter, to be confirmed).
Ski down to Chamonix is possible depending on the conditions and participants' fitness level .
