Glacier ski voyage
The Vallée Blanche is the longest lift accessible off-piste ski run in the Alps. It starts from the Aiguille du Midi lift station at 3842m. First we descend the ridge which is equipped with ropes in the winter time. This involves roping up with harnesses and making our way down to where the skiing starts.
The descent then follows the 15km long Glacier du Geant through some of the most spectacular mountain scenery. The skiing either ends at the funicular train of Montenvers or, with enough snow-cover, one can ski all the way to Chamonix. Either way, there is a fifteen minute climb up at the bottom of the glacier.
Skiing the Vallée Blanche is generally done as a day excursion with a picnic half-way down. We have all necessary group safety gear and we can advise you on hiring other equipment you may not own yourself.
Typically, we chat the evening before and make a plan for the following day.
Check-out Chamonix off-piste if you’re keen to combine the Vallée Blanche with other off-piste runs or do multiple days.
