Description

The Benevolo Hut in Val di Rhemes is a must for everyone passionate about ski touring. Come and stay there for 3 days and enjoy its strategic location, discovering the wide range of possible routes it offers! The hut is located in the Aosta Valley, one of the most interesting areas in the Alps to practice this sport.

From the refuge you can indeed reach 14 different peaks: standard climbs like the Pointe de la Galise and the Pointe de Calabre or more technical as the Tsanteleina and the Grande Parei (in these cases there will be a reduction in the number of participants).

My goal during our stay in the refuge is to take advantage of the different orientations of the slopes to get the best snow for unique ski tours.

It is also possible to make crossings to the neighboring valleys, like Valgrisenche to the Bezzi refuge, Valsavarenche to the Chivasso refuge, or Val d’Isère in France to the Prariond refuge.

It is rather difficult to establish a detailed program in advance, given the different possibilities. Usually, we meet very early in the morning to go up from the hut and climb a summit. We can also have a short course on avalanche rescue. The beer on the refuge terrace in the evening will help us plan the following days.

So if you are in for this 3-day ski tour, just book your trip and come join me in the Aosta Valley! Get ready for amazing descents on great snow!

About the guide

I was born in 1981 and live in the Aosta Valley, surrounded by the wonderful peaks of my region.

I started guiding in 2016.

I like all mountain activities: freeride skiing and ice climbing in winter, ski mountaineering in spring, mountaineering in the high mountain in summer and rock climbing whenever possible!
