History

Festival of Accessible Mountain Sports

Thank you to Granit Escalade, Sports Spirit, Mont Blanc Mobility, Les Houches Mairie and Cham’aventure for all their support, enabling the Festival to take place.
 
The Festival Date for next year will be the weekend of 10th and 11th of September 2022.  By moving the Festival out of the school holidays we are hoping to be able to offer a wider range of activities such as downhill all terrain wheelchair try outs for adults and children, Joelette rides as well as more fun activities at Chavants.  
Hopefully we won’t be constrained by COVID restrictions either.

Tour du Mont Blanc

We completed the accessible TMB with a team of 14 and have proved that the Quadrix all terrain wheel chair and many of the trails around the Mont Blanc Massif are accessible for everyone.
 
Our downloadable guidebook is available. Please use to button below. 
The guidebook shows different routing options so you can choose what suits you and your group best in terms of difficulty level, distance, time, transport, and accommodation.
 
We are also exploring funding options to purchase several Quadrix wheelchairs for the Commune.

Limitless, a documentary:

In the summer of 2021, Access Mont Blanc set out to find a route for people with disabilities to complete the Tour du Mont Blanc.

This film illustrates the trip. The team pushed the limits of machines and man.

Following lessons learned on this trip, Access Mont Blanc produced a guide, so others can experience the mountains.
