Scared of heights? I urge you not to watch this. Seriously, I’m not messing…

The Vallee Blanche, Chamonix’s White Valley, perhaps the longest single ski run in the world. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? Just one small detail – before you can put your skis on you have to negotiate a little thing called the Arete… Slip through those two strands of rope to your left, and it’s a 2 kilometre drop… Watch this through to the end, if you dare, and ask yourself – why aren’t crampons compulsory on this thing?
