Ride THE LEGEND ...
Aiguille du Midi : altitude 3 842 m ... All around is immense, pristine and wide open.
The famous Aiguille du Midi ridge is just in front of you, with its legendary run starting just below …  
It is a skier’s wonderland, a 23 km run, through incredible glacier bowls and slopes. A magic ski experience, around seracs and crevasses until the welcoming break at the Requin hut (optional).
A breathtaking panorama : Mont Blanc, the Chamonix Aiguilles, the Grandes Jorasses, the Drus, and the Verte. A must in a skier’s life !

DISCOVER EXCLUSIVE ROUTES ...
Ski routes vary and are chosen to fit skier’s technical skills : the classic route, Envers, Petit or Grand Envers.

Once at the end of Mer de Glace, skiers need to carry their skis during a short hike (20 min) in order to reach the Montenvers cog train, or to get to les Mottets refreshment hut before skiing back down to Chamonix.

TIMING :
From the departure in Chamonix to the return down into the valley, you should allow 4 to 6 hours depending on the conditions and the route taken.

GUIDING :
Vallée Blanche is an off-piste and ungroomed ski run on glaciers, where caution is necessary.
Taking a qualified moutain guide is then the best way to fully enjoy the activity.
From his experience and local knowledge, he will know how to choose the appropriate route enabling you to enjoy this magnificiant scenery in total security.
The maximum number of persons per guide is 8, this number can change depending on the snow conditions.

TECHNICAL LEVEL REQUIRED :
The classic way down Vallée Blanche is not very steep, and therefore not recommended to snowboarders (long flat sections).  There are yet several steeper options, such as Petit and Grand Envers du Plan. To enjoy a safe run down, snowboarders should be skilled to ride off piste black diamond runs, involving steep and changing snow quality. Expert level.
We more that strongly recommend the use of a telescopic single pole for help on the long flat glacier section of Mer de Glace.

SKI EQUIPMENT & CLOTHING :
Normal ski equipment is fine, however have your bindings checked. Your guide will provide the necessary safety equipment.
Clothing must be warm and wind-proof. You will also need gloves, a hat and sunglasses.
A ruck-sack is useful to allow you to carry a picnic and of course your camera !
