Description

Discover the Vanoise National Park during this fun and rewarding 4-day ski touring trip. Located between the Maurienne and Tarentaise valleys, this French National Park is a beautiful part of the Alps.

During the trip, we will traverse amazing glaciers. We will also go to two main summits: the Méan Martin peak (3330 m) and the Sana peak (3436 m). The panorama over the Alps is exceptional! Besides, we will sleep in comfortable refuges.

I try to help each participant in particular improve their ski touring skills, so that everyone takes advantage of the trip. You need to be in good physical shape and to have ski touring experience (at least 3-4 previous trips).

During this trip we will cover how to:
– Progress ski touring;
– Assess and manage the related risks;
– Use the AVD, probe and shovel.

Note that you can register alone and I will put a group together. And if you come as a group contact me to check special prices.
