There are so many routes to choose from, with runs for every level of ability. Try the Grands Montets & Argentière glacier, the Pas de chèvre, the Balme and the couloirs des Posettes, the Aiguille du Midi, the renowned Vallée Blanche and the Envers du Plan. You can also pop across to Italy and try out runs starting from Entrèves and Courmayeur.
If you're looking for something a bit more off the beaten track, then Chamonix Aventure also offer a wide range of ski-touring itineraries and courses. You can start off as a beginner or enjoy one of the 3-7 day all inclusive packages. Tours include skiing the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt or the Grand Paradiso which takes in a 4,000m peak.
Mont Blanc, the highest peak in western Europe, is without a doubt one of the most popular mountains in the world and every year many mountaineers try to attempt this famous peak. The ascent is a relatively simple snow route, but requires a high level of physical fitness for the ascent which is at high altitude, and takes a long time - on summit day the ascent and descent requires 9 to 11 hours of continuous effort. Minimum skills of walking on ice with crampons and using an ice axe are required. Chamonix Aventure recommend you undertake a 5 day overall programme, with 3 days of preparation, to practise the skills you'll need to summit and to acclimatise in a mountain hut for 2 nights before attempting the final leg of the ascent.
Your safety and enjoyment are their priority, so all the guides they work with are certified UIAGM mountain guides who have spent many years climbing and skiing in the Alps and are some of the most experienced in their field.
