Fantastic descent surrounded by impressive mountains such as Mont Blanc du Tacul the Giant's Tooth, les Aiguille de Chamonix… unique descent of its kind because, no particular technical qualities are required on the skis, good control of the equipment is sufficient. The itinerary takes place on glaciers that from Punta Helbronner 3462 mt. crosses the border and with very gentle slopes, reach Chamonix in 21 Km. An exciting experience also suitable for families.


  • Day 1
    La discesa si effettua in giornata, con partenza da Courmayeur, in funivia da La Palud 1370 Mt. a Punta Hellbronner 3428 Mt. Da qui calzati gli sci si attraversa il colle del Flambeau si scende in territorio Francese. Le condizioni possono essere molto varie: dopo le nevicate occorre destreggiarsi bene nella neve fresca in fuoripista, invece, dopo i lunghi periodi senza nevicate la discesa diventa molto più facile essendo tracciata e battuta fino in fondo. Nei periodi di scarso innevamento, quando non è possibile raggiungere Chamonix con gli sci, arrivati alla fine della Mèr de Glace si risale con la telecabina che porta alla stazione di Montenvers. Da qui con il trenino a cremagliera si raggiunge Chamonix. Il rientro a Courmayeur solitamente avviene in autobus oppure in taxi.
