While climbing in the Alps with another woman, a champion skier Adèle Milloz fell to her death.

When she passed away while hiking in France’s Mont Blanc range, 26-year-old Adèle Milloz was in the process of becoming a mountain guide.

In the sport of ski-mountaineering, Milloz won numerous international, European, and national championships. However, he retired in 2019 to pursue a career as a guide.

Along with her, a 30-year-old lady who was a part of her training programme and was almost finished was also killed.

The women are believed to have been tied together when they collapsed while ascending to the summit of the Aiguille, according to The Times.

After witnessing the women fall and their remains being found early on Friday evening by other hikers, another group of mountaineers raised the alarm.

Olivier Greber, president of the Chamonix Company of Guides, remarked that Adèle was “a radiant young woman.”

The company as a whole is quite depressed today.

We will never forget her smile, the French Mountain & Climbing Federation continued.

An investigation has been launched, according to a police source, but the accident’s cause is still under investigation.

But according to the source, police had ruled out a rockfall.

Recently, climbers were advised to delay their expeditions since the drought was producing more frequent and hazardous rockfalls close to Europe’s highest mountain.

Numerous guided tour providers stopped offering walks, and two mountain shelters were shut down.

However, a source claimed that Milloz’s path was not particularly challenging.

Ski mountaineering, or skimo, is the activity of ascending a mountain and skiing down it.

The sport will make its Olympic debut in the winter games in 2026.

Milloz was raised in the Alps by her ski instructor mother and mountain guide father. She began skiing at the age of six.

Coach of the French national ski-mountaineering team, Thierry Galindo, described Milloz as “skilled and determined.”

She had achieved success in juvenile competitions, joined the French squad at the age of 15, and won the European sprint title in 2018.

She finished sixth in the renowned Pierra Menta race the following year.

The gruelling event involves going up and down 15 alpine summits, all above an altitude of 2,000 metres, over the course of four days.

Galindo said the Pierra Menta was the race “she loved above all”.
