Description

Skiing in the Alps of France is something that puts a smile on any skier’s face. And on this half-day trip, I would like to take you off-piste skiing in the beautiful Grand Brianconnais area of the Haute-Alpes department.

Full of blue sky and sunshine, yet also filled with an abundance of snow in the winter, the Grand Brianconnais is a great place for skiing. There are several wonderful places you can choose from on this off-piste skiing trip. Some examples include the following.

  • Serre Chevalier

  • Montgenevre

  • Vars

  • Puy Saint Vincent

  • Queyras

Each one of these wonderful areas is unique in the skiing experience it offers. For example, Montgenevre has the famed milky way, which includes Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx, San Sicario, Cesana, and Torinese. Meanwhile, Serre Chevalier, also known as the pearl of the Alps, was the Luc Alphand station winner of the Alpine Ski World Cup in 1997.

With such a rich reputation, the ski areas throughout the Grand Brianconnais are well worth a visit. And on this off-piste skiing trip, based on your skill level, weather and snow conditions, we will find the perfect spot for you! And because of the wide variety, there are routes that require absolutely no prior off-piste experience. However, you should be in good physical condition to participate.

Do you want to enjoy approximately 3 hours of great off-piste skiing in a beautiful area? Then join me at the Grand Brianconnais. Let’s together choose the best area for you, so you can have an unforgettable time. To get started, all you have to do is send me a request.

Would you like to enjoy more winter season adventures in the Haute-Alpes? Then come and join me for a day of exciting ice climbing!

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
