The Off-Piste routes of the Vallée Blanche

The Vallée Blanche is an off-piste which does not require you to be an expert in skiing off-piste. As the descent is physically and technically demanding, you will need to be an experienced and confident skiing on off-piste terrain. The Vallée Blanche has several routes for descent. The routes of the Petit Envers du Plan, Grand Envers du Plan and the true Vallée Blanche are the most challenging, requiring more technical off-piste control and experience. The classic Vallée Blanche and Grand Rognon descents are more open and are less difficult.

Off-Piste Ski equipment needed for the Vallée Blanche in Chamonix:

Off-piste in the Vallée Blanche requires a little more specialised equipment that a traditional day of freeride. The descents here comprise of not only off-piste but also mountaineering.  Along with the essential off-piste equipment; airbag backpack, transceiver (DVA), probe and shovel, helmets are also required. You will also need a harness, rope and crampons. Our mountain guide team can provide this equipment should you require it.  We highly recommend that you have an airbag backpack which allows you to carry your skis, in the event of needing to climb or traverse on foot.
