Esprit Heliski - Valgrisenche




Vallée Blanche - Mont Blanc

Vallée Blanche - from Courmayeur to Chamonix - Mont Blanc

A unique and incomparable glacier ski descent, along the famous "Mer de Glace" and majestic granite peaks.
A fantastic route of 24 km in the middle of the Mont-Blanc massif.
After taking the Skyway panoramic cable car in Courmayeur, the starting point is at the Torino hut at 3,375 mt (Punta Helbronner), to end the day in Chamonix at 1,042 mt.
You will ski at the foot of the most magnificent peaks in the Alps and through breathtaking crevasses and granite seracs.
Required level: you need to be a good skier, but the itinerary does not present any major technical difficulties. The descent lasts between 4 and 5 hours, taking time for picture breaks and for lunch.

Once you arrive by skis in Chamonix, you will have time to enjoy a well deserved beer!
If snow conditions do not allow to ski the last part of the route, you will reach Chamonix centre with the Montenvers train.
Return to Courmayeur by bus or private minibus through the Mont Blanc tunnel.
