Gran Paradiso (4061 m) is particularly well suited for ski touring. It is a mountain located in the Graian Alps, more precisely between Aosta Valley and Piedmont regions in Italy. In fact, its ascent is doable by many skiers that already have ski touring experience. We will leave either from the Victor Emmanuel or the Chabod mountain huts. In this way, if one of the participants doesn’t have the level for a traverse ascent, the others are not penalized.
Indeed, it’s a grandiose trip deep in the Italian altitude atmosphere. The welcome, the comfort and the delicious food!
Enjoy the following highlights of this trip:
– Ascent of a summit over 4000 m, with magnificent views of the Alps
– Several possible attempts during the stay depending on the weather
– The charm and food of an Italian mountain hut
– Getting the picnics at the refuge
– Multiple meeting points depending on where you are coming from + included transfers
– Easy access with TGV
You can’t miss ascending this summit ski touring!
