/ Earliest ski of the Vallee Blanche
Have a great trip....
Well actually that's slightly disingenuous as they're basically only skiing the top of the midi and touring back up in that clip. As to that death from falling whilst skiing the ridge thing. Whilst i've no doubt if you fell down the nth face or at 1 other spot on the ridge it would be seriously unpleasant. It certainly far from so extreme that one wouldn't chance it. As the ridge itself isn't that hard to ski and usually the biggest obstacle in trying to ski it is the ropes and vallee blanche punters.
