ESF Les Houches Mountain Guides

Mountaineering & off-piste adventures in the Chamonix Valley

Featured in:

These mountain guides offer a ski-guiding service whereby you can explore the wonders of the Chamonix valley with your own private instructor. You can discover the ski stations of the Mont Blanc range across the French, Swiss and Italian borders on half-day or full-day expeditions.

ESF Les Houches, in association with the Chamonix Mountain Guides Office, will also take you to the world famous Vallee Blanche. A breathtaking descent of more than 20 kilometres down the Mer de Glace glacier.

This is an unforgettable day out in the heart of the Mont Blanc mountains. Access to the Vallee Blanche is by the Aiguille du Midi cable car and from there follows the fabulous off-piste glacier descent down to Chamonix itself , snow conditions permitting, or if not then as far as the Mer de Glace ice caves ­with the remaining part to Chamonix by the Montenvers railway. This is not just for expert skiers,­ if you are a good confident skier, in good physical condition and looking for a challenge, this need not be just a dream but a real experience for you.

With a mountain guide, you can join a group or come with your own private group (1 mountain guide for a maximum of 8 people). Transport to and from the Aiguille du Midi cable car station is provided by the ski school free of charge. Bring your picnic, or stop at the Requin mountain hut for lunch.
