Highlights

 
  • Experience exhilarating skiing in the Alps with like-minded skiers.

  • Capture the breathtaking alpine beauty of the mountains of Sestriere.

  • Benefit from having a qualified guide accompanying you.

 

Experience the stunning Italian forests and slopes around the alpine village of Sestriere for a full 3 days of elite skiing.

Freeride among the wonderful and wild alpine landscape for an intense experience.

Mix in with scenic skiing the warm welcome you’ll receive, delicious Italian food, comfortable accommodation, and even a relaxing evening in the Jacuzzi.

Located between the valleys of Val Chisone and Val Susa, the village of Sestriere rests at approximately 2,035 meters and is completely surrounded by high mountains.

Its fortunate location and stunning scenery has meant that it’s been developed into one of Italy’s biggest ski resorts.

The area regularly hosts the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup and has even hosted the Winter Olympics in 2006.

We’ll head high up in the mountains far from the crowds of amateurs below, where we can choose from a great number of descents to explore.

The weather conditions and overall level of the group will determine exactly where and what slopes we’ll experience along the 3 days.

Potential participants should be able to ski with ease on all types of snow, but don’t need to be able to master ski touring techniques.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the world-class alpine village of Sestriere, where we’ll be based for a 3-day freeride skiing trip.

I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
