At up to 17km long (if skiing to Chamonix) the Vallee Blanche is a wild experience. If you enjoy skiing
off-piste, then this is a trip not to be missed.
Level of skiing: Skiing on glaciers requires caution, and you must be able to ski in control at all times.
If you are not an experienced off-piste skier please contact us to confirm current conditions. You will be
skiing for a long time and you must be fit enough for a hard day of skiing. In optimal conditions the
Vallee Blanche is like a red/black piste, however for 95% of the season it is much harder - if in any
doubt please contact us before booking.
Equipment: If you don't have your own, we will equip you with a harness, rucksack and avalanche
transceiver. NB - If you need to borrow equipment, please type it into the remarks section on the booking
form. You must bring warm clothing, sunglasses and goggles, packed lunch (unless on a Private Trip), scarf
or facemask (in case it is very cold). If you don't have a duvet jacket these can be rented from us on the
day for 10 euros.
Meeting: We normally meet at 09.00 inside the Cafe Vertical at the Aiguille du Midi lift station. You will
need an MBU lift pass for the day. Please purchase this in advance. If the meeting time is any different
to this you will be contacted in advance.
