Description

The Maira Valley is one of the most famous and fascinating areas for ski touring in the Cottian Alps.

Located in the south-west of Piedmont, stretching 45 kilometres from west to east, the Maira Valley hosts some notable alpine summits.

If you’re searching for fresh deep snow, wild wooded areas, and the remoteness of natural, then the valley is your ideal location.

The Cottian Alps stand in the southwest between the border of Italy and France, and is home to a number of 3,000m-plus peaks.

This means that the valley offers an almost endless supply of slopes which we can fully customise to your own level of ability and experience. From the simplest and shortest of slopes to long crossings landing several days, we’ll create the right itinerary for you.

We will base ourselves in one of the inns along the valley, before meeting in Dronero, the final commune that rests before the entrance of the valley. It’s from here that we leave each day to discover the mountains set in our itinerary.

Based on the weather conditions and snow cover, our regions of ski touring may be modified to maintain the highest levels of safety as possible.

Streams carve through the rock, towering mountains guard the valley, and endless meadows carpet the alpine floor.

The diversity of the valley’s terrain means that you only need to have a medium skiing level to be able to join this trip. In addition, potential participants need only a minimum experience of ski mountaineering, as well as a good level of fitness. 

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the Cottian Alps along the Maira Valley for an incredible 1+day ski touring trip.
