Vallée Blanche

Vallée Blanche, one of the longest and most famous glacial ski descents in the world. A 23km ride with 2800m of height lost from the Aiguille du midi (3842m) to Chamonix (1050m). The views are spectacular, surrounded by the towering snow covered rock and spires of the Mont Blanc range, and the skiing features everything you could possibly want; powder, slopes of varying degrees and couloirs. All this within a cable car ride from Chamonix! Find out more here …

Off-piste ski & snowboard

In search of perfect powder, or after a steep couloir descent, or perhaps just some beautiful skiing away from the crowds?

The Chamonix valley has an abundance of off-piste possibilities. Skiers and snowboarders come here year after year to explore all that is on offer. With a choice of Grand Montet, La Flegere, Brevent and Le Tour, as well as the extensive Vallée Blanche descent the possibilities are limitless. Find out more here …


Ski-touring in the Chamonix valley allows you to reach remote slopes, making it is easier to seek out fresh natural snow. It is also a nice way to find some quietness, away from the crowds and pistes. Find out more here …

Ice climbing

From December to March, cold temperatures after rain or snow falls will be at the origin of beautiful icefalls. There is a huge range available in the Chamonix area from single-pitch to long routes of several pitches, some accessible to beginners and some steeper ones. We often climb in the shade, and occasionally in the sun when it’s very cold. Find out more here…
