Mont Blanc with its 4810 meter elevation is the highest and most prestigious peak in the Alps. Since when, on August 8th 1786, Jacques Balmat and Michel Paccard conquered its summit, every mountain lover wants to reach it at least once in a lifetime. The view that this peak offers is spectacular and endless.

The Mont Blanc ski touring trip from Refuge Grand Mulets follows the "Voie Royale". The climb to the summit is an extremely evocative yet demanding experience among snow, ice, crevasses, seracs and ridges. The spectacular and challenging descent along the steep and wild north face is the dream of all off-piste skiers.
