Join me in this magnificent ski touring trip in the Beaufortain during 4 days. The Beaufortain is a paradise for ski tourers, due in part to its exceptional snow. It is located between the Mont Blanc and Vanoise.

For your comfort, we will sleep every night in the same location, either in a hotel or a lodge. This is the ideal massif to acquire basic ski touring techniques.

Indeed, we will use the convenient lifts of Arêches en Beaufort. We will do nice off-pistes before reaching beautiful summits with amazing views of Mont Blanc.

During this tour you will learn how to: progress in ski touring, use the shovel, probe and transceiver, and assess and manage the risks of the practice.
