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!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
