Vallee Blanche & Other Activities

Vallee Blanche

Vallée Blanche - It is the longest and probably one of the most famous ski runs in Europe, 22 kms long and 2780 vertical metres of skiing or boarding.  Starting at the top of the Aiguille du Midi, and finishes either at the Montenvers train and Ice Grotto or, weather permitting, all the way down to the Chamonix Valley!

 ** Although the run is not technically difficult, it is on a glacier and is in a high mountain, off piste environment, so we strongly recommend doing this with the help of a mountain guide.**

The best time to do the Vallee Blanche is in good weather and preferably at the beginning of the week to try and avoid the crowds!

The Vallee Blanche can be done on either skis or a board, however there is a longish flat section near the bottom so a well waxed board is highly recommended.
