The descent is one of the most epic and unique adventures in the European Alpes. This is a must for every skier- You can take the gondola from Chamonix at 1050m Aguille de Midi at 3842m. When you reach the top, your reward is a view over the roof of Europe. But be careful, at this altitude the air is thinner, so please take it easy.
After the footbridge to your left, take the small passage way hidden in the ice. Here you will find the start of a popular off pist descent (hors slope) and the crest of Aiguille de Midi. The descent ends in the Vallée Blanche. Please remember the descent should only be used when accompanied by a guide. You can find slopes here to suit all abilities : The Vallée Blanche classique,Vallée Blanche par le petit Envers, Grand Envers and a lot more.
