Vallee Blanche, Chamonix

4.6
#2 of 7 in Winter Sports in Chamonix
Catch some powder at Vallee Blanche, where the snowboards and skis swoosh by fast on the ground  while the aerial tramway swings overhead. If you're a daredevil, then the slopes offer an off-piste vertical descent of 2,700 m (8,858.3 ft). The terrain here is popular due to an open, wild feeling. After you’ve conquered the runs and explored the Mont Blanc massif glacier, stop by the Requin Hut for a hearty meal and drinks.

  • A superb ride to meet "His Highness" the sea ice by a path most of the time in the ombre(c'est mieux pour marcher). Duration: between 1: 00 and 2:30 depending on your speed. L landscape on arrival is really some effort...

  • If global warming is causing the decline in the sea ice it's desolation. Our planet has experienced different eras such as the cooler then maybe a cycle of warming caught us awareness of mother nature. A good time. Nice walk from Chamonix.

  • Magnificent panorama. It's scary to see how much the sea back up... A must see before it is unfortunately too late...
