Ski the Iconic Vallée Blanche
21 March or 25 March

Join us to ski the Iconic Vallée Blanche

21st March or 25th March

Enhance your Summit of Minds on Snow by adding the thrill and challenge of skiing the iconic Vallée Blanche, in the heart of the Mont-Blanc mountain range. Ski in the company of other MB community members, led by our friends and partners Mountain Path.

Your Trusted Companions

Expert mountain guides will ensure your safety and enrich your Vallée Blanche experience with their local knowledge. As part of a small group of fellow Summit of Minds members, you will enjoy an inspirational outing, chosen to meet your skiing level and expectations.

When, Where and How?

Pre or Post Summit (21st or 25th March) weather permitting. The Vallée Blanche is accessed via the Aiguille du Midi cable car, climbing to a height of 3,842m. It is one of the finest off-piste glacier sites in the world and early spring can be one of the best moments to ski it. However, it remains a high-mountain venture and to make the most of the experience, despite what you might hear about it being an ‘easy red run ski’, you must be a very competent skier, not suffer from any form of vertigo and feel completely at ease with the equipment essential for your security.

What to Expect?

22km off-piste skiing amidst glaciers, crevasses and seracs
2800m vertical drop starting at 3842m
Depending on snow conditions finish either at le Montenvers station and return by train or ski all the way back to Les Planards in Chamonix
A round trip of between 4 to 6 hours
If weather or snow conditions prevent skiing the Vallée Blanche, the guide will choose another destination
