Fantastic scenery, great powder, good guides and plenty of sun. A perfect way to spend a full day skiing!

Okay the view is nice, but really no skiing. Two third of it is flat, the rest is very basic (green / blue level...)... And then you have to walk up to Montenvers.

Superb day out. The scenery is fantatstic. You need to be a good competent skier but not expert. The guide will pick a route according to your ability. Don't put it off any longer - just do it.

My first visit to Chamonix. Very happy that I chose this hotel. Friendly service. Centrally located, convenient to restaurants, shops, etc. Recently renovated room, nicely decorated. Small, but not cramped like my room in Paris. Very convenient to have breakfast in the bar on site. Ma première visite à Chamonix. Très heureux que j'ai choisi cet hôtel. Le service est... More

We went with a guide from Compagnie des guides de Chamonix-Mont Blanc. A fabulous day but you must be able to ski moguls!

A fabulous experience & the most amazing scenery, you get visual over load as it is just so amazing. I was nervous about the walk down the ridge, but Nicolas was so professional, yet warm & friendly that I totally trusted him. He knows the area like the back of his hand & without a doubt he added to our... More

If you can confidently ski black runs then hire a guide and get out into the Valley Blanche for a superb off piste adventure. The adrenalin kicks in as soon as you step out onto the ice ridge at the top of the Aiguille du Midi, crampons on, roped together, skis on your back..... Just do it!

Desiree, Fiona, and the highly professional staff make this cozy hotel - in the most idyllic location in the gorgeous Chamonix - a very pleasant place to stay. You will be thrilled to awake to the sight of Mont Blanc, and eat breakfast while looking at the rippling mountain stream below. This is a rare and wonderful place to stay.

We skied the Vallee Blanche from Courmayeur. We had an outstanding guide named Anna from the Courmayeur Alpine Guide Society (office is near the church in Courmayeur village). Anna picked us up and drove to the Funivie Courmayeur Hellbron where we were given safety harnesses and avalanche beacons. a very cloudy day in the valley, going up the Funivie, we... More

Please do not do this excursion unless you are an expert skier and in tremendous physical shape. I consider myself an above average skiier of 40 plus years, but the Vallee Blanch with fresh powder was extremely physical and was probably above my limitation. I survived the the excurions none the less and am not unhappy that I completed the... More
