Combining spectacular views, a healthy dose of risk and enough adrenaline to get the blood pumping, the beston the planet are a luxury only open to those who have the skills, courage and equipment to face off with nature without batting an eyelid. Here are two of the very best out there to whet your appetite for more.
The Petit Envers du Plan in the Vallée Blanche in Chamonix, France offers almost haunting views of blue glaciers and gaping crevasses. That being said, it is also quite challenging and much steeper than other ski routes, meaning that most of the time you will have this run to yourself.
At the top half of the Inferno in Mürren, Switzerland advanced skiers will find some truly breathtaking mountain views as well as a range of terrain, from moguls to pistes that will challenge anyone’s skills and courage. The descent is long, exciting and definitely worth doing.
