A week of great adventure skiing in glaciers background, on glaciers and peaks.
This ski-tour makes you discover the remarkable glaciers and off-ski slopes of the Vanoise mountains.
On skis, we will skin up and ski down some passes and glacier summits, for example the summits of Grande Aiguille rousse (3482 m) and Galise (3343 m), the Gros Cavall and Grand Cocor, so and so…
Vanoise is probably one of the wildest and most beautiful wilderness areas in Europe. To the ski tourer and mountaineer, it’s a remote paradise!
Six days of intensive and highly rewarding ski-mountaineering crammed with big ascents and ‘out-there’ descents plus at least one night in one of the most stunning huts in the Alps! This tour is the jewel in the crown of the Vanoise area and is ideal for experienced ski tourers and mountaineers looking for a challenging yet highly rewarding week.
This is a rather difficult and very committed hut to hut ski-tour, in which we will skin up and ski some high passes and big glacier summits of the Eastern and central Vanoise range. We will ascend and ski down for example the summits of the Gébroulaz pass (col) and peak, Dôme de Chasseforêt, the Réchasse peak, sometimes even the Méan Martin, and the Pointe de la Sana before skiing down to Val d’Isère. . We will also enjoy the pleasure of the big off-piste skiing in virgin and protected spaces.
