Ski from top of Mont Blanc, one of the best way to climb Mont Blanc.
From mid of april and until beginning of june, the weather and snow conditions make the ascent of Mont Blanc and down by skis possible, from the very top.
The way used to do it is in the north face, above Chamonix.
It starts at Plan de L’Aiguille ( 2233m, mid station of the cable car of Aiguille du Midi ), go throw the Grands Mulets Hut ( 3057m ), climb up the north ridge of Dôme du Goûter ( 4304m ) , go on abri Vallot ( 4362m ) and reach the summit by the last and beautiful Bosses ridge.
Depending of the snow stability conditions , many options to ski down are possible.
Day 1 : Meeting point in Chamonix, cable car of Aiguille du midi.
From the mid station of the lift we ski up to Grands Mulets hut on a large crossing under Aiguille du midi north face. We go throw the “jonction” of glaciers and reach Grands Mulets hut.
Day 2 : After a very early departure from the hut, we climb up the Dôme du Gouter north ridge and the Bosses ridge. The two sections are very “alpine” and demanding, they asks a real safety in the progressing. The way down from the summit to the hut is possible directly in the north face or taking some variants. We move to Chamonix by skis or lift depending of the conditions.
