Chamonix, the high resorts with massive vertical descents, often glaciated, are renowned throughout the ski world as off-piste classic. Chamonix and surrounding areas, Italy and Switzerland, will be the destinations of our freeride and off piste adventures. Join us for some incredible untracked skiing in the world.
Through the ski-touring and the off-piste tour, it is possible for anyone with a technical basis of skiing to be guided on the most beautiful peaks of the Alps. Participating in one of our courses you will learn how to manage your off-piste skiing and ski-touring trips in autonomy and security.
How about famous Vallee Blanche and powder off-piste ski days with experienced mountain guides.
Vallee Blanche, the most beautiful and famous off-piste route in the Alps. For those who like to ski off-piste close to amazingly beautiful crevasses and seracs, surrounded by a breathtaking landscape in front of the summit of Mont Blanc!
This is one of the most famous and most amazing off piste experience in Chamonix. All the way from top of Aiguille du Midi, 3842 m, to Chamonix valley, 1032 m, on a glacier and you get to experience the breathtaking views. Several variants and routes to choose from: like the normal Valley Blanche, the Petit Envers du Plan or the Grand Envers du Plan.
This glacial route is very popular, but the presence of a mountain guide is very strongly recommended. Be sure to pay attention to snow conditions and to the weather forecast. Avalanche search device, probe and shovel are necessary.
