Meeting at the Oulx train station (Cesana). Transfer to Montgenèvre resort (between France and Italy). Today will be warming up, technical advice and learning to use safety equipment. In the afternoon, if weather permits, we will ski to our accommodation in Cervières by an off piste itinerary until the hotel. Luggage is transported to the accommodation.
Today we tour above our base camp, in the Malazen valley above the Laus hamlet.
We go through the forest until the Chalets d’Izoard (2190 m). It’s an old pasture hamlet in a beautiful mineral cirque, at the foot of the famous pass. From there, we reach the last slopes until the Ourdeïs pass (2420 m), the access point to the Queyras regional park.
We go through a valley terrain to the border with Italian Piedmont. We reach the Cîme Saurel (2249 m), from where the views over the Fonts valley and its many hamlets are spectacular. We can also see the beautiful Sestrières valley. Finally, we descend to end the trip.
