About the Vallée Blanche

The classic itinerary is not very steep and includes long traversing and/or flat sections. Technically easy on skis, these parts require, in snowboard, a very good experience to anticipate and deal with them without having to take off your snowboard.

There are more interesting runs to do in snowboard (Envers du Plan for example) but steeper.

There is no age restriction as long as your fitness and ski level allow it! Your guide will/may adapt the itineary if needed and take the necessary time.

For children, their level of skiing and their ability to progress off-piste is the most important point. The altitude makes the physical efforts, especially for children under 16 years old, very exhausting. We recommend a minimum age of 13 years old and an excellent ski level (ideally with a previous day of skiing with one of our guides). A minor must be accompanied by a parent for any activity with one of our mountain guides.

In general, we call “high mountain itinerary” all off-piste itineraries during which you evolve under your own responsibility. It is therefore necessary to be able to estimate and manage the risks related to this activity, particularly the choice of the right itinerary, the avalanche risk, crevasse rescue technics, etc.

Just like any off-piste itinerary, especially in the high mountains, the Vallée Blanche involves risks. From avalanche danger to crevasses, skiing the Vallée Blanche means “putting your spatulas” in an environment that is not secured and where you have to accept the risks whether you are accompanied by a guide or not.

Being accompanied by a guide will not make the dangers of the mountain disappear but thanks to his expertise, you will be able to appreciate the beauty of the landscapes.

A certified mountain guide is not an all risk insurance ! To evolve in the high mountains alone or with a guide, you must be aware and accept the risks related to this exceptional universe from all points of view. 

Our mountain guides are qualified, equipped and trained to provide you with the safest experience possible. They will anticipate any risky situations and deal with most of the dangers for you. This is not to make you feel less responsible, on the contrary, the safety of a group, experienced or beginners, is the business of every member of the group! 

A certified mountain guide is an experts in safety first of course. But they are before that passionate persons. Spending a day with them means learning, understanding and sharing the pleasure of being in the mountains!
