Infos & Booking


I propose to leave above Chamonix in Haute-Savoie, to ski in the heart of the cirque de Leschaux, in a wild and spectacular part of the Mont-Blanc massif.

On the first day, after a gondola ride up to the Aiguille du Midi and a partial descent of the famous Vallée Blanche, we will reach the Requin refuge to spend the night.

The next day we will hike on the Leschaux glacier, at the foot of the mythical Grandes Jorasses north face, to reach the refuge of the same name where we will spend the night, in the heart of the Mont-Blanc massif.

On the last day we'll do a short out and back couloir to the Mont Mallet, before continuing with the descent to the Montenvers.

If you are interested in other technical itineraries in the Alps, I also propose during spring a five-day raid around Mont Vélan and Grand Combin and the high route from Arolla to Zermatt.
