anyone skied Vallee Blanche? If so what is it like and do I need some fat skis or will my Kartel 98's be fine? Trying to travel light if possible and gauge what I need to take

HacksterDepends on the condition but I skied it with 78 mm waisted AT planks. It's more about your skiing abilities however the run is not that difficult.
Until you hit the exit from the glacier which can look different every year. Beware of the crevasses too, there's also a traverse half way down across a sometimes avy prone slope.Make sure to ski it with someone in the know of the actual route and condition.
There is a guy on TGR called IDRIS, PM him for more detailed advice on current conditions.
