Cool free ride, but in a sporty way! An unusual, gentle and offbeat concept that lets you enjoy the most beautiful descents of the valley without any transports issues.

We will use the train for our trips to the different ski areas of the valley. Transportation is free thanks to the host card delivered by your host in Chamonix. A different way of going skiing, more relaxed and above all more efficient than regular transportation. The program is a combination of off-piste and ski touring at the most beautiful spots of the valley, punctuated by the free appreciation of the landscapes during our journey.     

No collective session. Only with a private guide, dates are up to you and dependind on vacancies.

Program

Day 1 : Domaine de Balme
Leaving Chamonix, we go to Vallorcine and its ski resort Balme/Vallorcine. Close to Switzerland and with a breathtaking view of the valley, this playground offers a multitude of different off-piste routes … in summary, enough to award our spatulas!    

 

Day 2 : Domaine des Grands Montets
Towards Argentière and its mythical Grands Montets resort! In a high altitude atmosphere, magnificent itineraries and more than 2000 height difference, we find ourselves in an incredible setting under the eye of the famous Aiguille Verte (4122m) between glaciers and forests … a pure delight!     

 

Day 3 : Domaine des Aiguille Rouges
Arriving at the Praz station we take the Flégère lifts for a day of ski touring in the Aiguilles Rouges. Located on the opposite side of the Mont-Blanc massif, it offers an ideal panoramic view and perfect terrain for the practice of ski touring. Several routes are offered to us for this day of escaping our daily lives, with a descent to the Buet hamlet through the Bérard dale. Peaceful return to Chamonix … by train!
