Amazing experience!

The views and snow was amazing!!!!!! Bit on the flatside in the middle for a boarder, but still well worth it!

Vallee Blance is not for the faint of heart! Skiing through the glacier is the most exciting adventure I've gone through! Absolutely stunning!

This is one of the greatest off-piste ski runs in the world accessible from a lift. A guide is a must have and the exit down the Midi Arete is not for the faint hearted but the views are spectacular and (we had the run pretty much to ourselves) the sense of vast space is amazing.

Have skied a lot on and off piste but the snow and the wicked cold coming off the arete from the Auguille di Mida was a shocker.Get well wrapped up. Crampons are really helpful even if roped to a guide like we were. Do not try and carry your skis in your hands, make sure you have them in a... More

Nice run, must have a guide (no, that's not just so they can earn a few bob). Not for beginners but not hard.

hard work but well worth the experience. Think of this as more of ski sight seeing tour. Lot's of hiking. Make sure to have a harness, beacon, and ability to strap skis on your back.

If you want to have the best run of your life ride the Vallee Blanche! It is wise to get a guide the first time since there are many crevasses that you can fall down. The views are insane and you ride down an amazing glacier!

This is an awesome experience for any skier (a little experience required but nothing dramatic if you go the classic route). I took a guide and we ski toured over to pointe Helbronner (Italian side) and then skied down the glacier de la vierge. This was in perfect snow conditions. A highly recommended experience.

I went with a group of 6 and a guide who was essential in making a very safe day. Beautiful day, roped up for the climb down. Steep powder skiing to start with, practiced the turns with the odd fall. Skied round and past the glaciers. Learnt how to stay safe and not to fall in a glacier. Over a... More
