Vallée Blanche : ski the vallee blanche with a chamonix mountain guide

The "Vallée blanche" with a Chamonix mountain guide

The "Vallee Blanche" is undoubtedly the finest off-piste glaciar  in Chamonix

Vallée blanche

What is the Vallée Blanche ?  

The Vallee Blanche is an outstanding off piste run stretching over 20 km in the heart of Mont Blanc range, from the top of the Aiguille du Midi (3842m) to Chamonix Mont-Blanc (1050m) or to the Montenvers train depending on snow conditions. If you have no or little experience of backcountry skiing or not a good knowledge on glacier and high mountain terrain, the presence of a mountain guide will be necessary.

Several routes down the Vallée blanche are possible depending on the size and level of the group : the Classic Vallee Blanche, the Petit Envers, the Grand Envers … A choice of itinerary you will make with your guide.

How difficult is the Vallée Blanche?

Without being difficult, the Classic Vallee Blanche is a long off piste run, on a high mountain glacier terrain, which in terms of skiing requires good control of speed and trajectory. In terms of difficulty, it could be compared to a “Red” run in a ski resort, except on a non-packed snow, in a non-securized environment offering no possibility of turning back, and… during 15 km. Even with a mountain guide, the Vallée Blanche presents some objectives localized risks (falling seracs, crevasses,...) requiring group efficiency in skiing. You should be able to control your speed.

And on snowboard?  Vallée Blanche is more difficult to snowboard as some parts are flat or traversing close to crevasses. You should be a very good snowboarder, black run with off piste experience and good fitness. Telescopic poles are  useful.

Do not overestimate yourself !

Contact your mountain guide!

The descent of the Vallée Blanche is possible from mid-December to late April depending on snow conditions.

The Vallée Blanche is not recommended for young children, even very good skiers because of the cold and fatigue. It may be possible only with their parents, in very good weather conditions and if the children are motivated and in very good physical shape (medical opinion advised).
