Trace du Mont-Blanc in Chamonix

On Saturday, May 2 will take place the “Trace du Mont Blanc” in Chamonix. A mountaineering ski team race rallying Chamonix to Aiguille du Midi.

Event not to be missed !

This race will leave the “Maison de la montagne” in the direction of one of the most beautiful views of Chamonix Aiguille du Midi. 23 kilometers long and 3, 300 meters of ascending elevation.

For the beginners, ski mountaineering, mountain skiing or ski touring is a ski practice on snow-covered grounds, very close to nature, without using specific facilities on the ski areas (no lifts and no groomed fall-line skiing), for leisure or competitive purposes.

The ski mountaineering is practiced on very steep slopes, mostly with alpine skis ; cross-country skiing can be practiced with skis.

This sport is practiced with seal skins under the skis to prevent slipping backward, now synthetic device provided with short hair. When the snow and terrain conditions warrant, hikers use knives.

For your accommodation, Le Morgane will be pleased to welcome you and advise you of the best training spots. Stay in one of our 56 comfortable rooms and get the best available rate by booking directly on our website.
