Dauphiné skiing traverse in France

dauphine 3

This 7-day crossing of the Dauphiné Alps is reserved for expert ski mountaineers only. Join a certified mountain guide if you're up to the challenge.


7 Days

Mar, Apr


This 7-day crossing of the Dauphiné Alps is the most challenging traverse in the Alps and is for expert ski mountaineers only!

Located in southeastern France, the Dauphiné Alps are a group of mountain ranges west of the main chain. The Massif des Ecrins, the Taillefer range, Belledonne, and also Matheysine are all included in the Dauphiné Alps.

The Dauphiné Alps, also known as the Karakorum of the Alps, are one of its wildest corners. One of this program’s highlights is the opportunity to climb the Neige des Ecrins (4015m), the most famous mountain in the region.

This traverse is for advanced ski mountaineers only. You need to be able to ski on all types of snow conditions and terrain. You can also expect steep ascents and descents and lots of narrow couloirs. Moreover, you’ll find yourself skiing down 40° slopes everyday of the week!

Feel you’re up to the challenge? So don’t hesitate to contact me. I can promise a week full of excitement and adrenaline in the most beautiful setting in the Dauphiné Alps.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
