Description

I’d love for you to join me on a beautiful off-piste and ski touring trip in the bright sunshine of the south of France.

The Queryas lies near the Italian border, between Briancon and Gap in the Hautes Alps. It is in incredibly special and unique area because it still holds strong ties to local traditions. You’ll be able to observe the region’s pastoral and craft culture in this enclave in the heart of the Alps. There are a few small ski resorts in valleys nearby, but they have not taken away from the untamed nature and traditional architecture that we find here.

Furthermore, the region receives a great deal of sunshine and abundant snowfall, making it an excellent ski destination. But it is still largely unknown to the majority of skiers. Because Queyras is off the beaten track, it’s an ideal place to explore via ski touring.

On this trip, we’ll stay in a small charming hotel in a converted traditional house of Molines-en-Queyras. From there, we will head out to ski in different valleys every day. We’ll go to Saint Véran, Abriès, Molines, Ceillac, and Arvieux.

The top of the ski lifts in these valleys will allow us to climb even higher, arriving at summits with huge gorgeous panoramas. Then we’ll ski down to the very bottom of unspoiled valleys. The runs are comparable in length and gradient to those in the Northern Alps.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity for great snow and scenic views in the south of France! You’ll explore great touring areas while staying comfortably in a cosy hotel in a traditional village.

So don’t delay, book today! I’m looking forward to meeting you and guiding you in France. 

I lead many different mountain trips around the world. Check out this ski touring trip in Morocco.
