Vallee Blanche, Chamonix

#3 of 11 in Winter Sports in Chamonix
Mountain · Ski Area
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. Make Vallee Blanche part of your personalized Chamonix itinerary using our Chamonix day trip app.

  • Wonderful! It is one of the most beautiful and famous glaciers (it is part of the most famous "Mer de glace"..). You can ride on skis, in about 5 hours (better if you have off-piste experience and, perhaps with driving...), starting from the Aiguille of Midi, at 3842 meters high. The route, in the glacier, between incredible views, can end, with good snow, even in Chamonix or using the montenvers train.
