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.

    Really beautiful, a unique place which can be reached by train and that gives way to see a fantastic show. It is on the lap of a glacier, you are in contact with high mountains I recommend it to everyone

    When we advocate ecology against global warming and the melting of the ice, sad markers along the course speak for themselves, "tarpaulin" to protect the gallery... How can we dig into the glacier, and put heating (beings humans) that he founded as soon as possible and hope the reverse? A shame to silver... except this desolation always stingy man, the ride by train is fun and the trail offers a nice view although disturbing! To do to become aware!

    Very nice place, with a cog train that you go up to the top - plenty of world weather, which strike a little everything, rate of 31,5e for adults and € 26,80 for the 5-14 years, not given to everything everyone we there came 20 years ago, the sea ice has really declined. In the tunnel, we found the yeti, good for children, but the music don't we are not appropriate for the place. Everything is done to attract tourists, damage while it's magic to see. Keep the nature as it is.
