Description:

The Chamonix valley and Mont Blanc Massif are excellent for ski de randonnée (ski touring). Ski touring is a great way to access nature as it was intended to be seen. The Massif is a vast area of spectacular, glaciated mountains. The lifts provide easy access to the mountain wilderness that make this region special. With the necessary equipment and a bit of hard work, riders will be able to escape the crowds on the slopes and find some great skiing. From the Aiguille du Midi there are numerous routes. One of the most famous descents in the valley is the 17km long Vallée Blanche. This can be skied without touring gear and is often the first off-piste experience for many skiers. For o complete list of ski touring routes in the Mont Blanc Massif and the Aiguilles Rouges visit our ski touring routes page. Several itineraries begin at the Grands Montets, certain with itineraries leading into Switzerland. This is the beginning of the classic itinerary, The Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route: a memorable trip from Chamonix to Zermatt with an option to continue on to Saas Fee. The Ski Mountaineering Club Chamonix Ski Aplinisme was created in 2009. Since then it has been a very active and dynamic section of the Chamonix Sports Club. Visit their website for more information. Rent or buy your ski touring mountaineering equipment. Mammut Store Chamonix has great deals.
