Route description:

One of our favourite ski treeing areas, Combloux is known as a family friendly ski resort only thirty minutes drive from Chamonix.

With lots of blue and red runs to choose from it's a great venue for the beginner to intermediate piste skier. However, if you duck into the trees there are numerous off piste runs to ski through the (mostly) widely spaced forests, with fresh snow to be found many days after the last snow fall. The slope angles generally aren't too steep meaning it's a good choice when the avalanche conditions are difficult elsewhere.

There are numerous short ski tours and hikes for those with energy where you can access whole valleys away from the main ski area. Although Combloux doesn't have the super classic steep off piste skiing that Chamonix offers, it's a great choice in fresh snow or bad weather when the trees give you good visibility.

Obviously, to get the most out of Combloux, you should ski with one of our experienced mountain guides!

Up early to catch the frozen snow, and a bonus sunrise on the 4327m Nadelhorn.

Perfect conditions, and super quiet. We’re back here on the 30th August if anyone’s keen....?

All six of us to the top of #montblanc yesterday - great weather and conditions.

We even hung out at the summit for a while, a rare treat!

Thanks also to @claphamski for guiding.

Our next Mont Blanc trip starts today with the Grand Paradiso. Let’s hope this weather lasts 🤞

Managed to sneak onto the summit of the Grand Paradiso between two days of unsettled and stormy weather.

A little trail breaking was required. All good prep for #montblanc - we’re heading that way tomorrow.
