Great off piste skiing from the Aiguille de midi with some amazing views of the Mont Blanc range. Unless you are very familiar with the actual ski, Definitely go with a ski guide to prevent any possible nasty accidents (We witnessed someone who was skiing on their own have a heart attack and be airlifted off the mountain). If you're... More

Just take cable car up to Aiguille de Midi and gears up - crampons, harness, rope, ice axes, and backpacks on. This is the glacier where you can do lots of many extreme sports - skis, mountaineer, and rock climbing. On the bright day, the view is just like heaven. It's truly beautiful.

People here goes up to Aiguille du Midi then descend this Valley skiing. A little daredevil for me but according to them is a must for skiers.

Did a day trip skiing from Italy several years ago. The descent from the Aiguille du Midi is less scary from there but we had to jump down several feet from a ladder! You have to book to go with a guide and take a packed lunch. No one told us the guide expects to share it. You must follow... More

Never in my life have I had a day like I had when I skied La Vallee Blanche. It was an exhilarating hike at the top, tied to my group and working as a team- followed by some of the most gorgeous skiing terrain. Our fantastic and adorable guide made sure we steered clear of all possible glacier cracks, and... More

I was bit nervous about hiking down the ice path but it went easier than I thought. I loved the tour and it was my first real off piste experience. Every skier is dreaming about fresh snow and making your "mark"on the snow, well here it's possible. I am happy we did it!! It was a tough run and it... More
