La Vallée Blanche
La Vallée Blanche information
This jaw-dropping 2800m descent is the off-piste ride of a lifetime. Beginning at the Aiguille du Midi, zipping over the crevasse-riddled Mer de Glace glacier and returning to Chamonix through the forest, it can only be tackled with a guide de haute montagne (specially trained mountain guide). Skiers should be red-piste level and in reasonable physical shape.
