View from the glacier towards the Grand Combin
The Corbassière Glacier (Glacier de Corbassière in French) is a valley glacier in the Grand Combin massif in the Pennine Alps in southwestern Valais. It is 9.8 km (6.1 mi) long with an average width of slightly more than 1 km (0.62 mi) and covers an area of 17.4 km2 (6.7 sq mi).
The origin of Corbassière Glacier is on the northern slope of the Grand Combin at over 4,000 m (13,000 ft) above sea level. The glacier tongue currently ends at around 2,300 m (7,500 ft) above sea level.
On the right side of the lower section of the glacier, the Cabane François-Xavier Bagnoud (2645 m above sea level) belonging to the Swiss Alpine Club is a starting point for ascents and glacier tours in the Grand Combin massif.
