About the activity
Mont Blanc (4,809 m) is the ultimate goal for almost any climber worldwide. Climbing this famous mountain with skis in early spring is a very special and challenging adventure for fit skiers with alpine experience.
Day 1*: We will meet at 17:30 in Chamonix for a welcome talk, gear check and briefing for the next day. it is highly recommended to ether come fully acclimatized or book 2-3 more days before the program begins to make sure you are in the right level of acclimatization/ technical skills to be able to climb the mountain safely.
Day 2: With one of the earliest cable cars we arrive to the Plan de l’Aiguille (mid-station of Aiguille du Midi). A long traverse along the Bossons Glacier will eventually take us to the hut Refuge des Grand Mulets at 3057m. though it is a short day it is very important to be done with this relatively exposed section as early in the day as possible.
Day 3: Still in the dark we climb up the north flank of the Dom de Gouter . The climb itself takes about 7 hours and is very challenging both physically and mentally. The elevation gain from the hut to the summit is 1800 meters. After a short break on the summit we will ski back down and Traverse to the mid-station.
*The mentioned timetable is exemplary and may vary due to conditions, ability of the participants, safety & weather limitations.
Fitness Levels & Technical Ability
A Mt. Blanc ascent in winter does not fall under the category of "my first ski tour" nor "my first mountaineering experience".
This activity might suit you if you are a very technically competent skier able to deal with a variety of off-piste conditions on very steep (ca. 35 degrees and above) terrain. The skiing is being done under seracs and around crevasses with precision and speed while always maintaining control. In addition you will be required to present your previous mountaineering experience and the usage of crampons in varied steepness on snow and ice (including "frontal points" usage), and self arrest skills.
A very high level of fitness, stamina and mental toughness is required for a long summit day as well as efficient transitions between skiing and mountaineering modes whilst on the mountain.
