Google Street View and the alpine climbers virtually send you to Mont Blanc [video]


There’s no problem if you can’t explore Mont Blanc now, either because of the lack of money, time or physical condition. Google comes with a virtual solution that sends you in the places you always wanted to visit. This time it’s about offering some different experiences of exploring the Mont Blanc summit, by skiing, running or ice climbing.


Together with some montaineers, climbers, alpinists, photographers and skiers, Google managed to capture Mont Blanc in images, creating the virtual tour of Google Street View. In the video below you will see Ueli Steck or Kilian Jornet, two of the best alpine climbers, trying to offer the comfort of discovering the extreme sports. Further than this it’s up to you to be physically in those places.
