Starting from the iconic summit of the Aiguille du Midi in France and finishing at Punta Helbronner in Italy, this high-mountain trek begins at an altitude of 3842m.
As you cross the spectacular glaciated terrain of the Glacier de Géant you will be surrounded by towering alpine peaks, glistening seracs and icy blue crevasses – which you see again from above when you return via the Panoramic Mont Blanc gondola!
Stunning views of the Chamonix valley and the majestic Mont Blanc provide incredible photo opportunities.
It is a relatively easy high altitude trek involving approximately 600m of descent and 200m of ascent.
This is a great outing suitable for both experienced alpinists and novices alike, no previous experience of mountaineering or glacier travel is necessary.
For an even more exciting team experience, your guide can provide an introduction to crevasse rescue. Each group designates a “victim” that their colleagues must rescue. This is a team activity where you will have to combine your individual skills to harness the group potential.
Experience the ultimate overnight adventure, sleeping in a portaledge, suspended from a cliff face.
You will explore the fantastic rock-climbing routes of the famous Aiguilles Rouges.
Watch the sunset and sunrise with stunning views over the Mont Blanc range.
You will spend a lovely evening in your sleeping bag high above the ground – a unique experience overlooking the Chamonix mountains!
This activity involves rock climbing, abseiling, belaying and hauling, using pulley systems. You will climb an introductory level multi-pitch route and spend the night sleeping on the portaledge.
This activity can be extended to two days with some more rock-climbing on the second day.
This is a challenging and inspiring group activity that can be adapted to suit all abilities. Everyone can take part in this team activity, all you need is a sense of adventure and a head for heights. It offers a thrilling challenge within a completely safe and secure environment.
This is a very sociable activity in which participants encourage and support each other along the route, giving everyone an opportunity to experience the spectacular environment of the high mountains.
A network of trails ranging from leisurely to energetic criss-cross the lower section of the valley, while the higher terrain is accessed via the lift system – simply hook your bike onto a chairlift, then charge back down again!
Whether it’s a gentle pedal through the forest, a thigh-busting push up to a mountain lake, or an adrenaline pumping descent down a steep mountainside – Chamonix has it all.
This invigorating team activity can be organized for all group sizes, with different routes to suit all needs from gentle to challenging.
Half day rides can be worked into a multisport day with other activities in the morning or afternoon, while full day rides can incorporate a picnic lunch or “plat du jour” at one of our favorite mountain restaurants.
Amongst the alpine meadows and traditional farmhouses, we venture into the forest and wade into the water. Your guide leads you through a series of gentle streams, rushing rivers and swirling rock pools.
The more daring members of the group can abseil over waterfalls, zip-wire across torrents, and leap off high rock ledges. Those with less of a head for heights can safely navigate around the obstacles along more gentle waterways.
This is a fantastic team building activity that can be adapted to suit all members of the group. Escape the typical work environment to have fun together and encourage each other round this natural outdoor water park.
Learn how to travel safely on glaciers; gaining skills to read terrain and identify hazards, use safety equipment, and perform crevasse rescue as a collective.
On this practical hands-on day you will learn, as a team, how to read glacial terrain to minimise crevasse risk, how to travel roped-up across glaciers either on foot or on skis, and how to carry out a crevasse rescue in a number of different realistic scenarios.
A big part of mountaineering is knowing your environment, managing the risks, and collaborating together to have a safe and enjoyable day in the mountains.
Good team communication, coordination, and cooperation are essential for a successful rescue!
We will begin by looking at the terrain and assessing the weather and snow conditions to make decisions on where is safe to ski or walk.
Accompanied by one of our Chamex guides, your group will be lead onto a glacier and shown what to do in the event of a crevasse fall. What is your first response? How do you organise the rescue ? How do you work together calmly and effectively to manage the situation?
As well as equipping you all with the skills and knowledge you need to go on glacial terrain, this is a great exercise in developing communication and trust between members of your team, seeing how people react differently under pressure, and how quickly they are able to put an effective strategy into place.
Learn essential safety skills from expert mountain guides in an authentic alpine location
Practice transferable skills such as decision making, risk assessment, and communication
This activity can also take place in summer! June – October
If you’re looking for a truly unique and memorable team building activity, staff incentive or impressive corporate entertainment then this will not disappoint. The highlight of your company ski trip will surely be the most famous off-piste ski run in the world, the mythical Vallée Blanche.
La Vallee Blanche goes from Aiguille du Midi at 3812m, via the spectacular Mer de Glace and finishes either in Chamonix or on the glacier at Montenvers.
Enjoy this amazing 23 km ride with your partners, colleagues and friends. From the moment you step out of the Aiguille du Midi ice tunnel onto the breath-taking ridge of the arete, you’ll be blown away by the stunning high mountain scenery. Even the most experienced off-piste skiers will be impressed by the awe-inspiring views of Mont Blanc, Mont Blanc du Tacul, Les Drus, and the Grandes Jorasses.
The descent winds its way down through the world-famous “white valley” past glistening crevasses, towering granite peaks and massive seracs, finishing up on France’s longest glacier – the Mer de Glace. If snow conditions allow, it is sometimes possible to ski all the way down to Chamonix via what us locals call the “James Bond Track”!
Halfway down the glacier, you can even stop to enjoy a traditional meal at the Requin hut. The final descent follows relatively easy terrain down past the Mer de Glace glacier and the Montenvers train station where you can either take the train back to Chamonix or walk 20 minutes up to the Buvette des Mottets and then ski down a forest path back to Chamonix.
The Vallée Blanche is an entirely off-piste descent, with no groomed sections at all. The difficulty of the descent depends on the snow conditions; the snow can be nicely compacted giving similar skiing to that of a blue piste, however, there can also be deep powder snow or windblown crust, in which case you will have to have good off-piste skills to ride down safely.
Once you descend the Aiguille du Midi ridge you are committed to ski all the way down and, unless you have ski touring equipment, there is no possibility of turning back.
As a rule of thumb, if you are comfortable to ski black runs full of moguls, you can ski the Vallée Blanche in most conditions.
Discover the thrilling and fast-growing sport of ice climbing. Our guides will teach you correct ice climbing technique, how to use ice axes and crampons, handling of rope systems, understanding the terrain, and so on.
This is a great option for building team co-operation as you will be taught how to belay each other, look out for each other’s safety, communicate clearly, and give encouragement to each other. Ice climbing requires focus and concentration, which are key to a successful work environment.
Small group sizes ensure that each person benefits from plenty of personal attention and focussed tuition from our mountain guides, we can run multiple climbing groups in the same area.
Feel the satisfaction of learning new skills as a team.
Join us for a magical snowshoe hike, either on the forest trails of the valley or up amongst the high mountain peaks.

Your evening begins with a short drive from Chamonix through the Mont Blanc tunnel to the nearby Italian village of Courmayeur, where you will be met by a fleet of snowmobiles ready to whisk you off to your special destination. Hold on tight to your driver and enjoy the ride, as they open up the throttle and speed off across the snowy tracks.
You will be given a warm welcome at the traditional mountain refuge, enjoying an aperitif under the stars before you tuck into a scrumptious four-course Italian meal of mixed entrée platters, pasta course, meat course, dessert, served with wine and finished off with coffee.
