Ski the Vallée Blanche with a guide
Of course, we will also be offering our fully guided Vallee Blanche ski trips on the most mythical off-piste ski run in Europe.
A fantastic day out in one of the world's most famous off-piste ski areas, you'll start from the very top of the Aiguille du Midi at 3842m then ski down past stunning seracs, ice falls, crevasses and towering peaks back down to Chamonix.
Although experienced off-piste skiers will enjoy an incredible outing, this route is also open to less confident off piste riders thanks to our Vallée Blanche preparation course. This one day course, usually held at Les Grands Montets, will help refine your off-piste skiing and get your skills up to scratch so that you will be fully prepared for your descent of the Vallée Blanche.
Whether you're an expert or an intermediate off-piste enthusiast, skiing the Vallée Blanche is a "must do" Chamonix experience - come and join us!
