An amazing experience that any good skier should consider. If you don't know much about backcountry skiing and don't have the necessary equipment - hire a local guide. They'll provide everything you need. Beautiful scenery, worth every penny.

See it while you can....Like most of the world's glaciers, it's receding pretty rapidly. Amazing views all the way down, snow is usually fantastic at the top, plenty of fresh lines (if you know where you're going/have a guide, as it can be dangerous), the ridge walk from the lift is cool. The cons (bear in mind I'm an experienced... More

We had a trip booked through evolution 2 ski, guide was very friendly and would recommend company. The day itself starts with a lift ride to the top, the views here are amazing and worth a picture.Next was a walk a long the ridge which I found fine but one friend does not like heights and found it very scary....

Unfortunately, the glacier is very dry; our descent in February was described by the various guides as being "more like conditions we expect in April".

If you have bought a combined attraction ticket, make a point to reach the Vallee Blanche before 3:30 PM. The ride to the top is equally breathtaking

We skiied down the glacier off-piste with Kailash Adventure (best guides in the area) and it was the best skiing of my life! Could've used more snow but the scenery more than made up for it. If your skiing aptitude is sufficient and you can hire mountain guides, this is a must-do!

Did this run - with a ski guide - a while back. Just getting to the top of the Aguile du Midi is scary enough, but then being roped together to move along the narrow ice path, carrying your skis is not for the faint hearted. But if you manage this, then the open vista of the Vallee Blanche is... More
