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.

  • Superb, wonderful, the ride by train to access the site and already beautiful but once on place what grand panorama you didn't take full eyes, once the small cable car took a descent of 420 markets waiting for you. Simply awesome, but is useful to maintain an activity of mass tourism by digging into the sea ice which has the effect of accelerating the melting of the glacier said. For evidence they must regularly add markets to access sites. could we not let this great site in the natural state without human activity, just the panorama on already great place.
