Vanoise is probably one of the wildest and most beautiful wilderness areas in Europe. This is a 4 day on glaciers’ hut to hut ski-tour To the ski tourers and mountaineers, it’s a remote paradise!
Four days of intensive and highly rewarding ski-touring with big ascents and ‘out-there’ descents, and nights in some of the most stunning huts in the Alps like the refuge Col de la Vanoise at the bottom of the huge highest peak called Grande Casse (alti 3852 m)!
This tour, ideal for experienced ski tourers and mountaineers, takes place in the heart of La Vanoise and makes us cross the glaciers of the crown of the Vanoise national park. This is a short hut to hut ski-tour, in which we will skin up and ski some high passes and big summits of the central Vanoise range, a traverse of the central Vanoise glaciers from Val Thorens-col de Gébroulaz pass, through Champagny, and back to Val Thorens through Chavière glacier opass.. We will ascend and ski down for example the summits of the Gébroulaz pass (col) and peak, the Réchasse peak, sometimes other peaks….
We will also enjoy the pleasure of the big off-piste skiing in virgin and protected spaces.
