Vallee Blanche, Chamonix
(4.6/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Skiing the Vallee Blanche in Chamonix was a dream come true. You have to have a level of very good ski and mountaineering broad knowledge or go with a guide, as it was my case. Hire Cosley houston alpine guides. They are extraordinary, super professionals and great people. From the moment you take the cable car and visit the aiguille du midi, with its terraces and its 'step vacuum' until the arrival to Chamonix by train is a fantastic experience. To begin to make the descent on skis, down walking with crampons and in general with strings by a steep, up to a surface journey more flat where already shod the skies begins the maximum enjoyment. Depending on the quality of the snow, the enjoyment is greater. To my I touch a perfect snow, and could take advantage of this famous off-piste all the way. We stopped for lunch in a mountain lodge, and continue until you reach the part more flat of the glacier, up to a point where there is could advance more in skis, so we ended up walking a path up steep stairs to finally take the train back to Chamonix. If you're a fan of skiing, and you like the adventure, the Valley Blanche is your destiny

  • Visited as the end point of the hike. Far to see three great north walls Grand chorus, the scenery is stunning. But glacier itself are impressive Aletsch Glacier and glacier in St. Moritz.
