In the heart of the Mont-Blanc mountain range you will have access to 325km of pistes and 70km of cross-country ski trails. In addition to the three mountains of Rochebrune, Mont d’Arbois and Le Jaillet,  you can also take advantage of access to the Mont Blanc ski resorts of Les Contamines, Chamonix and Courmayeur.

ski huskyTo truly appreciate the might of the mountain range and its glaciers, fly by helicopter over the massifs. Already exhilarated, land at a remote musher farm to spend some time with a crew of husky dogs. The stamina and strength of these animals is astounding. Heighten your adrenalin as you venture on a sleigh ride across bumps, climbs, descents and glades above Notre Dame de Bellecombe.

 

 

 

ski glacier ice caveBefore you leave, head into the heart of one of the glaciers. The hidden ice caves are resculpted each year by the weight of the glacier. Take the iconic little red Montenvers cog train up the mountain, where a cable car will take you to La Mer de Glace. The resident glaciologist and astro-photographer will meet you to discuss the history of Montenvers, the “sea of ice” and the mountaineers who first discovered this natural wonder. As the sun sets, learn the best techniques to capture the stars, planets and galaxies visible in the night sky.

 

 

Amid the mighty Mont Blanc massif, conviviality and sporting spirit come with a breath of fresh air.
