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!

It's that time of year.... the summer isn't far away and it's worth thinking about summer alpine plans early. Booking guides and huts are worth doing in advance! And that isn't a marketing ploy by the way :)
This year we have a few trips scheduled, including Mont Blanc (3 trips), Matterhorn and some lesser known peaks like the Domes du Miage.
Have a browse of the scheduled trips page - and give us a bell if you'd like to arrange a trip on different dates, we have a list of people who'd like to share some guided climbing adventures.

Another day of laps in the trees. Low angled slopes avoiding the avi hazard and trying to keep out of the wind. Pretty wild weather at the moment.

Superb weather and soft snow on the Vallee Blanche today. Even got some fresh tracks, although not shown on this video.
A pleasure to be skiing and guiding the white valley again 👍⛷
