From the small Eze ski resort, we reach the ridges of the Renoso before diving East to the small Ghisone station. A Gîte (a typically furnished holiday rural house) will welcome us for the night.
By the ravine of Pralalli, we reach the eastern summit (2,112 m.). From the beautiful downhill we reach the Vizzavone pass (1,163 m.). Overnight in a small hotel, where we wil meet our stuff.
We will pass Col de Muratello pass (2,050 m.) before crossing the ridges leading to the shelter.
Vertical drop: 1,384 m. Difference in level: 1,484 m.
From the shelter, we go down to the sheepfolds of Tolla (1,011 m.) and climb up again to Pietra Piana. Or, if the conditions allow it, we will follow the ridges, a great route.
Vertical rise: 374 m. Difference in altitude: 831 m.
Surely the most beautiful stage of the tour. We will pass Col Rinoso (2,206 m.), then to Capitello lake (1,711 m.), then to the breach of the door (2,250 m.).
Difference in altitude: 1,150 m.
This stage makes it possible to reach directly the Monte Cinto´s foot. We pass by the Punta Artica, then Capu di U Facciatu before diving on the sheepfolds of Chiarasgioli. Then, by a path in the heart of the Corsican forest, we will reach Casmaccioli.
Very nice stage to join the valley of Asco. You reach the Erco refuge either by skiing or by a transfer (in case of lack of snow). An extraordinary and technical descent on the Cinto´s North slope, passing through the ancient sheepfolds of Magnica.
Transfer to Ajaccio for the last night. It is possible to take the boat that evening. The plane departs at 5:30 PM.
If you reach Ajaccio by plane, we pick you up at the airport.
If you reach Ajaccio by boat, we pick you up at the ferry terminal (you won't need a car).
One night in hotel in Vizavone, one night in hotel in Calaccucia.
Unserviced huts the rest of the nights.
It is better to arrive the day before in Ajaccio, in order to leave early the first day of the tour. We can book you accommodation.
I have been a mountain guide since I was 25 years old. My passion for discovering the mountains of the world has led me to the four corners of the earth. Currently, I am also an instructor at the National School of Skiing and Mountaineering (ENSA).
Each year, I organize different trips. I'm in charge of each trip's organization and I'm sometimes also the guide who leads the group. It could either be me or one of my 4 guide friends, who I have been working with for years.
I have been organizing trips around the world for the past 26 years: Alaska, Antractica, Nepal, Mongolia...Over the years, I have organized trips in more than 30 countries.
In recent years I have had the opportunity to discover:
- Ski traverse in Greenland
- Ski touring in Iran, Lebanon, Mongolia, Argentina, Canada
- Climbing in the Yukon at the Lotus Flower, Jordan, Oman
- The high summits of Sichuan, Kula Kangri in Tibet, Langtang Ri in Nepal
I am currently based in Chamonix and the other 3 guides who work with me live nearby as well. If you are interested in traveling far away or discovering the Mont Blanc massif and other places in the Alps, for climbing, ski touring or ice climbing, please contact me. It will be a pleasure for me to organise a trip that meets your expectations.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
