As the name suggests, the Vallée Blanche translates to The White Valley.
In the company of your professionally trained esf instructor, you will discover the glacial slopes of the Mont-Blanc Massif in all it's glory.
The routes and descents of the Vallee Blanche start at the top of the Aiguille du Midi (3812m) where, after exiting the ice tunnel, you are straight onto the ‘arête’ (a mountain ridge). It is here you will experience one of the most treacherous but exciting points of the route as you make your way along the ridge, which has a 50-degree pitch on both sides. By this time your adrenaline will be pumping and you will be making memories that will never leave you.
A safety rope is placed along the descending path during the busy parts of the season as an element of safety, however, looking down at the miniature houses and town below, it hits home as to what you are experiencing and achieving as a skier.
An enjoyable and adrenalin fuelled 23km descent then awaits you!
Enjoy the beauty and sheer vastness of the panoramic views from the Aiguille du Midi on the Mont-Blanc side, the Aiguilles du Diable, the Jorasses, the Drus, the Aiguille Verte and many more spectacular scenes.
