Hiking to The Top of The Tete De Balme, Le Tour, Chamonix

This 10 minute walk from the Tete de Balme chairlift above Vallorcine or drag lift on the le Tour side accesses a variety of superb off piste terrain. Some in France and some in Switzerland!

Skiing The Posettes Couloir, Down To Vallorcine

This fine NW facing couloir can be accessed from the Posettes drag lift at Le Tour followed by a long traverse with some side stepping. Well worth the effort if conditions are good like here in Mid March 2015.
