Vallee Blanche
Chamonix Ski Chalet Chamonix The Vallée Blanche is one of the most famous off-piste areas in the world, and because of the choice of routes means that it is within the capabilities of the average skier.   The 20 kilometre off-piste experience beings at the L'Aiguille Du Midi cable car that will take you to 3842 meters after a look at the surrounding views. Your guide will point out peaks and interesting information about the area.   It is necessary to walk down a ridge for about 10 minutes.   Your Guide will rope you together for the walk down the ridge, which takes 15 to 20mins, and is there to provide assistance on your way down.   The guide will then assess your skiing level and the mountain conditions before choosing the route.   You will be able to get out of the guides tracks in the areas where there is no risk but you will be required to follow him when the crevasse danger is greater.

There is a lunch stop at the Requin hut half way down, bring your own sandwiches or eat the food prepared by the owners of the hut.

The Vallée Blanche is a full day and there is no race so you may stop for photos and to enjoy the views when you want.

When your group reaches the point where you leave the Mer De Glace and make your descent down to Chamonix there are two ways, either by the forest tail which needs to be well covered or in some places it will mean taking off ski's for a few metres, the tail also requires some care as people are starting to feel tired.   If the snow cover is not good enough then the gondola and Montenvers train will get you down to Chamonix without any effort.   And so ends a unforgettable day.
