The Vallee Blanche can change in nature day to day during the winter. Deep powder and cold winds right through to compact piste like skiing under clear skies.

On this particular day the weather and conditions really were perfect. Great weather and easy skiing. We followed one of the classic itineraries and stopped for a few photos and picnics along the way. With conditions like this the classic route is probably around a blue/red run in difficulty, although obviously it’s not a smooth piste and it’s a very long run.

To enjoy the Vallee Blanche in these conditions you should be happy skiing red runs all day long, including the odd mogul. If you’re not sure.. give us a shout and we cantle you through the level required.

Hopefully this video of the Vallee Blanche gives you an idea of what to expect on such a day. Filmed by regular ski and climbing guest Andy and edited by us.
